Starting with the retro-jangle 12-string sound of Chime School (2021) and ending with the moody stylings of “Loaded” era Velvet Underground (1970), the Big Soft Punch pulls no pop punches this time around, as American, British and New Zealand pop sounds abound, including the Windbreakers, the Allah-Las and the Model Rockets, the Soft Boys, the See See and the Clientele, the Chills and Bird Nest Roys, Game Theory and Big Star. And more big hits! Check it out:
The BIG SOFT PUNCH show returns with yet another hour of hits and nothing but hits! In my world, anyway. Saint Etienne, Reigning Sound, Anna St Louis, Habibi and Melenas! Also the Come Ons, Stereo Total, Coathangers, Ass Ponys and Wussy both! Plus a little bit more…
