Daniel Treacy has been missing in action for a while. Back in the 70s and 80s, his group The Television Personalities wrote classic, funny songs like "Part Time Punks" and "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives."
I'm on a mailing list that deals a lot with Iranian National Socialist Black Metal blogs in Persian, and with whether you should rather kill yourself or murder other people. I'm not sure how I got on it, but now that I am, I'm sort of trying to get with i…
It's called snap music and it's the new Casio craze out of Atlanta. The beats are retarded, the lyrics are ridiculous, the song topics range from laffy taffy to white t-shirts and I love every minute of it.

Over the past 20 years, although there were a handful of light-in-the-darkness bands, the majority of hardcore groups/kids/zines have been copycat losers, a zillion times removed from the founding principles of the movement.
One Kiss Can Lead To Another is the coolest box set ever. It contains four discs of the best in girl-group music. Not a bunch of stuff you've heard a thousand times either. This is deep, deep collector shit.
Inbetween the hordes of urchins parading around in Dick Van Dyke's hand-me-downs, crowding new British music like Fagin's gang, it's easy to lose sight of one Britain's most authentic musical institutions: rave.
