Like a military coup on culture Pop Goes The Revolution returns for a second series of delivering you the finest new music you will never have heard before, as well as all the latest news and events from the world of film, fashion, art, and everything else that makes up pop culture.

Pop Goes The Revolution is the place to hear new music, from independent releases, to unsigned bands getting their first airplay as each week we rummage MySpaces and press releases, to find you the best tunes from completely unknown bands to deliver to your ears. Combined with a mixture of humour, snobbery, sarcasm, and cynicism, the show brings you the insight you need into the Pop Culture world we inhabit.

With X Factor's Hallelujah, Crocs, and the Crazy Frog fiasco all too fresh in people's minds, it is clear that pop culture is in crisis. Shining a torch in the darkness, and giving you the lesser known treats in life, is Pop Goes The Revolution. So join us every Friday as we dissect pop culture and bring you the real highlights.


the reunion

Pop Goes The Revolution // 20.07.14 // The Reunion

After three years of silence we return for a one off special.

It's been a long hiatus, but after three years of departure we returned to the Subcity tudio one final time, our bags bursting with records. To join us for our reunion show we also had an interview with Natalie Holmes and, live in the studio, performances from Decky McKay of Young Aviators.

Tune in to find out the best releases from some of our favourite bands over the past three years.

series finale

Pop Goes The Revolution // 10.06.11 // End of Series 3

Well it's been a long year, but it has ended.

Before you all cry we'll be back in September, and in the meantime you should hang around our Facebook and Twitter for some nice summer exclusives and teasers of plans for PGTR Series 4.

In the meantime you can listen back to the last 70 hours of music that is series 3 of PGTR.

To finish off we've got a classic episode, all the favourite features as well as a host of great bands from new stuff like Verse Metrics through to PGTR favourites like Natalie Holmes. Enjoy.

Bye bye from PGTR...

Pop Goes The Revolution // 20.05.11 // Y.A.S.S.

6 days till PGTR Live III. So we thought we'd get three of the bands playing to come in and visit the studio, so we'll have Young Aviators, Shooting Stansfield and Kochka all in the studio on mic. Furthermore two of them, Young Aviators and Shooting Stansfield will be playing live in the studio. And what is the acronym of that? Young Aviators + Shooting Stansfield = YASS, which sums things up nicely.

Anyway, if that weren't enough we have tunes by Max Raptor and Black International plus a bit of a radio exclusive as play the fresh off the burning hot press recordings from PGTR favourite Rosie Jones's new project The Worry Dolls.

Update: Previous audio problems are now fixed. Audio sounds dandy.

we see lights

Pop Goes The Revolution // 13.05.11 // We See Lights

Well with PGTR Live III only a couple of weeks ago, we play a couple more tunes from the bands playing our series finale gig, as well as visiting a couple of acts from previous PGTR Lives.

We See Lights release their EP on Saturday, so we caught up with them to record a few special acoustic tracks and so they could explain exactly what happens at a Twee Jamboree.

Add to that some brand new tunes by Skinny Villains, Reverieme, Max Raptor, Where We Lay Our Heads and a lot of other bands with names, then we can consider it job done.

how about some music?

Pop Goes The Revolution // 06.05.11 // PGTR Live III Launch

Well we've got a lot of it. Between new releases from some great record labels such as Flowers In The Dustbin, Olive Grove and Philophobia. Add to that a small internet trip to previously unexplored territories for us such as Wakefield and Bradford, and what you soon have is a rather nice little playlist.

On a seperate note we're having PGTR Live III - the series finale on the 26th May. We'll be announcing the line up on the show. Trust us, it's going to be pretty special.
