This site is dedicated to British pop music in the pre-punk 70s. It is a documentary, if you will a popumentary, of one of the most neglected periods of music history.
You're not going to find many of the critically acclaimed 100 Best Albums Ever in these pages. But you will find bands like Slade, Hot Chocolate and the Bay City Rollers. Artists like Suzi Quatro, Chris Spedding and Tina Charles. Records like 'Kung Fu Fighting', 'Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep' and 'The Bump'.
This was the stuff we actually used to listen to, the music I grew up with and which I still love. So I thought I'd go and talk to the people responsible for making the hits of my youth - or at least as many of them as I could find - and ask them about their lives and work.
