IMO it's modern pesticides that is at fault for mental health tanking. You get pesticides, and some refrigeration practices, you can scale up your population centers.

The Michael Jackson book (curated and edited by Mark, published by Zer0, with essays by such luminaries as Ian Penman and, er, me) was an interesting episode

Gotta say this is why I have a lot more time for our resident @blissblogger here, agreements and disagreements all taken into account, than I could ever Mark, because he was just too indebted to the old school of music crit which focused on auteurs. I've never been so interested in that, the back room petty mafia squabbles are always more interesting than the product under a singular name.

Like, imagine trying to read jungle through Goldie without talking about Dego, Marc, the reinforced possee, the chancers, profiteers, people exploiting the welfare system, the lumpenness of it all. It doesn't give you an accurate picture. And I think Mark ultimately feared that criminality embedded in popular music.
