Over the years I have made friends with power pop fans from around the world. I believe the very first one to contact me outside of the US (1993) was Pierre Gurdjos, who runs the website Bubblegum The Punk A Guide to American Power POP 1975-1985.
He sent me a CD-R of a band from Liverpool circa 1971 I had never heard of before or since which has become a staple in my iPod, Rocking Horse's Yes It Is. Unashamedly early Beatles influenced with Lennon-ish vocal drawl and Badfinger-esque guitars, all three of you blog readers should creem your pants over this! Rocking Horse - Yes It Is
