...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Brian Appleton's History Of The World In Three Darts


With his domestic philosopher John Shuttleworth back in Sheffield, fretting over whether to plump for cake or a biscuit with a cup of tea, Graham Fellows revives another of his sublime creations.


Brian Appleton is a deluded "rock musicologist", whose history of pop is studded with bitter tales of how he's had a hand (uncredited, the bastards) in the creation of myriad hits and movements.

In History of the World in 3 Darts he casts his net wider – but there'll still be time for such "hits" as "My Turn to Be Poorly": the song that "inspired Morrissey to form the Smiths".
