This year marks the 38th anniversary of the Buzzcocks releasing the shortest single of their career, which is a pretty impressive accomplishment when you consider how short their singles tended to be in general.

48 years ago today, two bands who have since gone on to become among the most popular in rock ‘n’ roll history – along with a few other not-insignificant names – played a free concert in Hyde Park, providing a lot of people with a lot of fond musical memories in the process.

Interview: Ted Ottaviano from Book of Love
2016 marks the 30th anniversary of Book of Love’s self-titled debut album, which makes it a perfect time to step back and reflect on the cumulative work done by the group over the course of their career. In truth, they’ve only released a total of four studio albums, but in their defense, they broke up in 1994 and spent the better part of the next two decades apart, which is a pretty excuse for not releasing new albums. But the bond between Ted Ottaviano, Susan Ottaviano, Jade Lee, and Lauren Roselli Johnson has remained strong over the years, and although it’s a cliché to suggest that it’s now stronger than ever, there’s reason to suspect that it might actually be true.

Rhino Factoids

47 years ago today, a major league blues festival went down in England, featuring performances by a number of notable artists, including Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, and Ten Years After.

The Bath Festival of Blues took place – where else? – in Bath, England, and it’s funny to look back at the poster for the event, which made two major promises: 1) “In case of bad weather, there will be a substantial amount of undercover accommodation,” and 2) “Refreshments and hot snacks will be available all day.”
