MAKING PLANS FOR NIGEL: We love the Internet, you know. Not the bits where a now largely deserted office sticks up a page of stuff to fill the gaps between adverts, but the parts where people make seize the opportunity to turn the stuff in their heads into something that other people can look at. One such site is the frankly remarkable Nigel's Golden Days, a collection of charts from the years between 1973 and 1984, with - and this is the special bit - a personal commentary from Nigel on every track. Sometimes you get stories about being escorted to the record counter of Woolworths by policemen, sometimes an Allan Jones style factoid, but there's always something. The sort of website that should be required reading for anybody working in the music industry to peruse, to make them realise what's on the other end of their piecharts and carefully orchestrated release of tracks to the media.
