Breaking in a new Moleskine Lennon style.
“When I was quite young I wanted to be a reporter and I couldn’t quite manage to break into that, but I still have strands of that. I have to report life as I see it. I am a witness. [You Are the Quarry] really, really is my life. You may giggle, but I consider myself to be a serious pop artist, so it means the world to me.” - Morrissey

HUBBLE BUBBLE, one of Belgium’s great punk exports. Maybe more mean power pop than punk, this band put out 2 records and then threw in the towel after their bass player’s death. Roger Junior, the band’s drummer went on to fame as Plastic Bertrand and the song “Ca Plane Pour Moi”, a song he didn’t actually write(or originally even sing, though he was credited with as much). HB’s s/t debut features a bunch of power pop jams and harder meaner punk tunes. “New Promotion” is a power pop classic with it’s whistled hook and insistent beat. “Pogo Pogo”, a chugging rock n roll stomper, that has no doubt inspired much of the titular dance in the 30 years since the track first appeared. Power pop nearer the punk end of the spectrum does not get much better.
