Hello Anorak. If anyone's after something to read, I've just published a blogpost.

Quiet or loud? Punk, folk or dreampop? It depends on the background noise. (But the answer is never Hard-Fi.)

Observer piece about 'Anarchy in the UK' 40 years on:
http://observer.com/2016/11/the-sex-pis ... -than-ever

It's flawed but it's a good read.

Thanks for posting that. A good read indeed. (Except I don't understand why he keeps saying that they "could have been The Who", if they'd continued, like that'd have been good thing. If, like The Pistols, The Who had split after their first four hits ('I can't explain', 'Anyway, anyhow, anywhere', 'My generation' and 'Substitute') they would be more, not less legendary in my mind.)

This is entirely correct.

This part made me smile.
Since rock ’n’ roll was the creation of those excluded from the American dream, the least we can do is actively use music to fight for the rights of the disenfranchised and discriminated, blah blah blah, but here’s my new angle:

Sometimes, something doesn’t need to be precisely or even accurately political to be political.
No shit.

Deadspin has a nice opinion piece about the greatness of Smokey Robinson. No major revelations but I enjoyed revisiting some of his catalog with them. I wasn't aware of some of the classics he penned but didn't record.

Everyone should read this magnificent Sean Price interview by Gareth Ware. It's kind of everything.
