Toploader are supporting Reef in Holywood in June, which is brilliantly random. It’s easy to take the piss, but it’s good to see concerts in outdoor venues in Northern Ireland outside of Belfast.
Uncool admission, I like Toploader, though I will admit that Dancing In The Moonlight is a load of wank.
Next Thursday, is International Women’s Day, and as ever, this blog will be using it as an excuse to post some woman themed charts.
If you’re celebrating it, that’s cool. If you’re not that fussed about it, that’s cool. Just don’t be a dick about it.
That is especially if you’re Richard Herring, you uses it to flog a joke that died so long ago, it is now eligible for a Sainthood.
And men, don’t spend the day being self hating dicks. It won’t get you any brownie points.
So, here’s some charts for you if you want some songs to listen to on the day.
