♫ Taster of PJ’s verdict on Mirrors:
“ We admire the way Justin doesn’t appear until the boring bit, thus ensuring that music channels have to play the entire video when, had he featured in the main bit of the song, most of them would have chopped it off after the proper song finishes… His dancing around is a bit silly and there are no two ways about that, sorry… ” / Continued at Popjustice

♫ 77 hip-shaking minutes as the former host of Soho’s seminal Wag club posts Chris Sullivan’s Groovalicious Mix — “A pal said to me, ‘I didn’t know you played music that was made past 1990,’ so I, rather taken aback, did a mix that, although somewhat Latin and very me, is still very ‘modern’. Point is, I play mostly new stuff but hide it behind the patina of antiquity so no one ever notices” … Very efficient debriefing of the Sullivan life-story by Princess Julia at the uber-cool website Post New where the Big Man says: “I found my creativity forever been stymied by extreme poverty and hunger.”
