…’ and that’s why we’re punks, even as most of the music we listen to sounds more like Sade than Minor Threat these days.’ Full text here.

- Excerpt from a good piece/argument about what punk is/means today. It’s something I think about a lot generally and particularly at the moment,  as noise hovers(hoovers ?)  around the techno mainstream in an exquisitely aesthetsised and depoliticized  way.

I found it on Ian Maleney’s blog . Ian became the most interesting writer on Irish music  the moment he turned into  the boy who pointed out the naked state of Irish electronic music.

UPDATE. Yeah, a really good blog with links to lots of great writing, been reading it all day.
