    Old vs new

    UR Back on form!

    I just got the Electronic Warfare V2.0 triple pack. I had just about given up on UR, the music getting worse and the hypocrisy of going on about sticking it to the man whilst screwing their fans with alternate B-sides over different formats, CD-only tracks, etc etc. But this is a real return...

    OK I suppose this is a UK thing. And it's 50% a joke and 50% serious. What class do you think you are? As a child I can remember my mother sitting me down and telling me we were "lower middle class". We had a detached house in a village and i went to a private school on a scholarship place cos...

    I was reading some comments near the beginning of the Pazz & Jop thread about how the charts are more indie-dominated or rock-dominated these days and I started looking for some statistics. Basically I thought it would be instructive to look at (say) the top 10 singles of each year from 1985 to...
