Where are they now?

MP3Hugger has a roundup of what happened to the various members of Slowdive after the band broke up, along with MP3s from their various projects. It seems that their bass player, Nick Chaplin, has disappeared without a trace, while the other ex-members are continuing various projects.

Also via No Rock&Roll Fun, the Bluffer's Guide to Sophisti-pop. Everything you need to know about a genre of ultra-smooth, aspirational Thatcherite synth-jazz-pop, spawned from the New Pop begotten by post-punk/new-wave, that flourished in the mid-1980s, and is nonetheless a whole lot less aurally offensive than most things labelled "smooth jazz". And here is an article about sophisti-pop and what fits into it.

funny i should read this post as not long ago, i received one of those random myspace requests from none other than televise, simon scott's project. curious, i did a bit of reading up on what he's been up to, and while it seems pretty good, i decided not to add him as a "friend" because its all a bit odd really, the act of musicians adding random strangers (and not the other way around).
