10 Years Of Freaky Trigger: March 1999

FT11 comments • 883 views

Original FT Logo Freaky Trigger is ten years old this March. We’re going to have a few things celebrating that fact – some kind of party, some other bits of special content – but this is also a really good opportunity for me to revisit some of the stuff we’ve published over the last decade. Hence this series, which will showcase one post from every month we’ve been around. If you want to just follow the showcased material without my linking waffle, this is the page for you! Go there right now and enjoy it as we add things to it, bit by bit.

Three more links from the past – two of them never before reprinted! (possibly with good reason) If you want just the content and none of my reminiscing, go here.

sleep Three more links from the past…. (the just-the-content version is here)

June 1999: Let’s Just Say That Sometimes ? > ! – naturally, having decided to establish Freaky Trigger as a trailblazing website about modern pop, one of the first big projects I did was a three part essay series on the Beach Boys’ then-unreleased Smile! I wrote one of the essays, the others being by Fred Solinger and Mike Daddino, whose piece is the one I’m spotlighting here.

More excavations from the Freaky Trigger archives. If you find the commentary too self-indulgent you can simply enjoy the pieces by clicking on the link at the top right of this page!

My list of the “Top 100 Singles Of The 90s” started as an attempt – largely successful – to shake myself out of a bad patch: the commitment to regular writing would impose a bit of structure on my day.

10 Years Of Freaky Trigger: Dec 99 – Feb 00

Between the last post in this series and this one, the actual 10th anniversary of Freaky Trigger has been and gone. There’s something sadly typical in that, I think.

As ever, if you’d like to simply read the old articles I’ve selected rather than my reminiscences, just click on the tab up top right of your screen, with the robotic gentleman having a fight.
