The Pooh Sticks started their life as Scottish indie jokesters, releasing singles with inside joke titles like “I Know Someone Who Knows Someone Who Knows Alan McGee Quite Well” and “Indie Pop Ain’t Noise Pollution” or album titles like The Great White Wonder.
But, of course, if you joke about something long enough, it’s often because you truly love it, and so it came to pass that the third album by the Pooh Sticks, the optimistically titled Million Seller, is a true power pop gem, with couple of songs that match what fellow Scots Teenage Fanclub were doing at the time. Million Seller was filled with songs like the joyful “The World is Turning On,” the gorgeously twee “Rainbow Rider,” and the absolutely irresistible “Baby Wanna Go Round With Me.”
