This ‘I’m Not Even Sure What Powerpop Is’ Show Totally Rocks 15th June

This show was born of a conversation about Stewart Copeland, and his secret band Klark Kent, at band practice the other night.  I got a goo to do a Powerpop show and the following hour is the result of that.  About half way through the show though, I realised I am not sure what even constitutes Powerpop and how it differs from Pop, Garage, Punk, etc.  Listen in and make up your own mind. I am fairly sure that at least one of the following bands is Powerpop:

Klark Kent

The Powerchords

Sonic Avenues

Steve Adamyk Band


Mind Spiders

Low Culture

Legendary Wings

Sugar Stems

The White Wires

The Police

Joe Jackson

The Only Ones

Pointed Sticks


The Raydios

Bad Sports

High Tension Wires


Gordon Gano’s Army

The Cars

That’s your lot, even if I’m not sure what it is.
