Clicky shuffle: Random songs for Thursday morning

By David Malitz

Imagine my shock when I typed that Pooh Sticks song into YouTube expecting to find nothing only to find a performance from a reunion show - first in 17 years - that happened on Sunday. I feel like a mild failure for not knowing about this gig. One of the most ridiculous and fantastic ramshackle, indie, glam-pop groups of the late '80/early '90s. Indie pop ain't noise pollution.

The Pooh Sticks, "Young People"
The Fall, "Fiery Jack"
Swell Maps, "Full Moon in My Pocket"
Cortney Tidwell, "17 Horses"
Kanye West, "Drive Slow"

I've always found "Pooh Sticks" to be a really classy band name.

That Pooh Sticks gig was absolutly brilliant. The atmosphere was great, Hue seemed really into the gig, they really went for it. At the end of Young People Hue gave the Swansea Sound placard to someone in the crowd, it was me! It was a triumphant night. Hopefully they'll be doing more gigs, Hue was saying they'd been offered things os who cn but say.

I was there. In fact it's me that Hue gives the Swansea Sound placard to at the end of Young People. It was a brillaint gig, the highlight of the festival. Hopefully they'll be playing more gigs, seems a shame to get a band togethe to learn the songs for the sake of one gig. The Pooh Sticks are great.
