You know, I'll come right out and say it - I once contacted the Site Administrator and asked for Right Said Fred to have a page on this site. I heard "I'm Too Sexy" a couple months ago, and it wouldn't leave my head for a few days.

You wanted a page for Right Said Fred? It's already bad enough that we have a page for Wang Chung

To answer Cheesecrop's question, the Durutti Column aren't a spy organization but a band who formed in Manchester in 1978. I guess who can call them "post-punk" if you want but you wouldn't be incorrect in labelling them "art" rock either. If you want to know more, check out their instrumental "Sketch for Summer," produced by Martin Hannett (yes, the same guy who worked with Joy Division) is probably one of their better known tracks.

I always these guys being name-dropped by people who know more about music than I do. Or maybe I'm confusing them with Pizzicato Five. They both sound pretty Italian, but I don't think either of them are Italian.
