@ The Elevens, Northampton,
This Popfest is patterned after many
previous popfests put on by members of the Indiepop list**. Here is
a description of the basics of Indiepop courtesy of Steve Thornton for
more info, please visit www.twee.net:
"The Indiepop mailing-list is devoted
to discussion of independently produced pop music, the kind that tends
to come out on small-run seven-inch singles with handmade sleeves.(or
limited run CDs and CD-R's - edit by william) They call it "wimpy"
and "twee", but Pop Kids everywhere know that the true spirit
of Punk Rock lives on not in the mass-marketed "alternative"
scene,, but in the simple and pure efforts of kids banging out sweet
delicious songs on cheap guitars."
** Just so you'll know, we're not affiliated with the
indiepop list -- other than being subscribed to it for over ten years.
