50 THE LIST .ia" ‘: E -’:t, 1’"


Pop music is nothing if not illogical. The king of rock’n’roll, Michael ‘sadly plastic’ Jackson, can fork out $100m on an album that no-one wants, whereas people like Reel Big Fish can release modestly-produced balls of energy for albums, tour near incessantly and, strangely enough, accumulate up an obsessively loyal fan base. Infectious ska punk pop made by smiley Amercians: who’d have ever thought that would work?
