heard on the wire

I never want to see you again

Like Wikipedia, I know next to nothing about The Popguns, save that they made several lovely, jangly records of the kind that went out of fashion in the late 80s only to make a resurgence in recent years.

I do know that they didn’t make my favourite record of 1989. That would be The Stone Roses’s Made of Stone, but monstrously good as that is it doesn’t quite have the charm of my pick for a song-from-each-year-of-my-life.

When people talk about perfect pop songs, this should be what they mean.
