One of my brother’s classmates was badly burned by an aerosol can once, but that’s not why I’m writing today. It’s because Chris Parker’s UK based label Pogo Records is back with another smashing 45. “Afraid of the Telephone” is a new belter, by what seems like another dreamed up punkpop fantasy from Parker. Like his previous outing Chain Letters (who cut the brilliant “Bad Reflection” single a couple of years ago) it’s put together from members of various musical and geographical backgrounds. The Aerosol Burns features two punked-up powerpop hits, with the a-side reminding me of that other telephone classic “Hanging On the Telephone” by The Nerves. Have a listen below and pick up a copy before they’re long gone.
