No Pain in Pop
Last week on the show I featured the editor of No Pain in Pop giving us the lowdown on what the website, blog, label and night actually was and stood for. Scratching the surfaces other collectives don't particularly want to, or maybe don't know how to scratch, No Pain in Pop kind of sums it all up in the name. There's no pain in pop. Delve deeper and you'll find some of the more interesting stuff (he says, quickly changing Girls Aloud from the computer) like Gentle Friendly and Banjo or Freakout. Banjo or Freakout! It's the best name ever! They play nights like Upset the Rhythm in London, and again are keen promoters of the true underground.
