Top of the Pops caught up with Electric Six frontman Dick Valentine and asked the retro rocker if he thought it is humor that’s making rock more popular in the charts at the moment. “I don’t know whether it’s humor per say, I find the whole thing really quite humorous,” he said. “What I always do with music, is to picture the people being entertained, bopping along without the music. That’s entertaining to me! I’ve been doing that my whole life, watching people move to and fro and you think, why are they doing this? Regardless of what kind of music you do, it’s all about creating your own fun. Trends come and go, I think we can just leave that up to the people in marketing. I just go out there, put on a show and let the chips fall where they may!” Bbc.co.uk/totp has since removed the transcript.
