Chance are if you’re the kind of person who comes to this site, you have an above-average interest in music. I’ll bet that when it comes to your favourite bands, you have tons of pictures, ticket stubs, pieces of swag and merch, t-shirts, vinyl, CDs, bootlegs, concert programs–a million pieces of ephemera that are sitting in a closet or basement or box.
But no matter what your mom/significant other says, you won’t throw this stuff out. It means too much to you. If only there was a way to use this memorabilia for the goodness of humankind…
Mark points us at a project called The People’s History of Pop, an attempt at bringing together material from UK music history by enlisting the power of fans. What a fantastic idea!
