Pop! The Beat Bubble Burst (Music)
Pop! The Beat Bubble Burst explores the music of the sixties with an emphasis on British Invasion and Mersey Beat. It then traces those branches to the present day by playing music that echoes the music of the sixties including power pop, jangle pop, pub rock, glitter and glam rock, neo-psychedelia and indie pop.

Badfinger “Lost Inside Your Love” from The Best of Badfinger, Vol. 2 (Rhino 1974) —Originally from the Airwaves album. Just two members from the band were left at this time - Joey Molland and Tommy Evans.Buy it!
Numbers “Sunday Afternoon” from Add Up CD ALBUM (Attic/Basement 1979) —A set of power pop - thanks to Tom Stephens from Tight Pants Syndrome for hooking me up with this rather obscure power pop band. "Obscure" and "power pop" usually means it's going to be good!Buy it!
