It Wouldn’t Take A Genius To Work Out What The Scene Is

It’s a busy week at Popdose, is what it is—kicking off today with an appreciation of Kirsty MacColl’s 1989 album Kite.

I’ll tell you, after the regular snarkfest of How Bad Can It Be?, it’s a relief, a palate cleanser to write the occasional Popdose Flashback piece—to be achingly, even embarrassingly sincere for a change, to write at length about something I love, something that’s meant a lot to me, something about which I’ve had twenty years to form a considered opinion. Of course, given that it’s Kirsty MacColl we’re talking about, unvarnished truth straight from the heart is no less than she deserves.
