        Wonderful pop is right. Any one who's read my emails over the last
        couple of years will know of my admiration for this band. It's really
        nice to see them featuring on a posted playlist.
        I'll be travelling the 150 miles to London to see ballboy play for
        probably the last time with their current lineup in a couple of weeks
        time. The show is part of a week of Strange Fruit celebrations
        Incidentally, a new ballboy record is released in a couple of weeks
        time. Titled _The sash my Father wore_, its basically a solo acoustic
        set by front man Gordon McIntrye. The tracks I've heard sound
