You’d better stop this playing on my mind

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

It started as an earworm. That 1987 Kylie Minogue hit “I Heard A Rumour”. Except it wasn’t. It was Bananarama. So down the rabbit hole we went to listen to Bananarama hits and that’s how we stumbled across Michael Fortunati and his 1986 hit “Give Me Up”.

WHY. DID. WE. NOT. KNOW. ABOUT. THIS?
It’s Italo Disco Euro Beat keytar gold.
You can even smell the Kouros.

Happy 10th birthday Christchurch Art Gallery!!!

To celebrate their tin anniversary you will find some ginormous tin men (huge gnomes) outside the gallery entrance on Worcester Boulevard. There’s also a big marquee set up on the High Street / Tuam Street corner outside C1 with all sort of events happening this weekend to launch Populate! – the tenth-birthday programme of art round the city. Details about the weekend festivities here!

And not to be outdone Christchurch City Libraries have made the Freegal service available to library members. Three free legit MP3 downloads a week from the Sony catalogue! Wonder if they’ve got any Freegal Sharkey?
