Happy Nonce Year!
once again thank you for your stimulating contribution to this threadbasically everyone in the entertainment industry is a nonce. did you know usher was noncing justin beiber? the whole industry runs on a groom and nonce cycle with victims becoming perpetrators.
never read this biography but i'd be interested to check it out its something of i dunno a quirk a fault or whatever when it comes to white jazz musicians (the older guys i can't speak for the youngers)the bit that struck me most about the derek bailey biography was his utter scorn and contempt for his black collegues when they started going 'soulful'. he thought it was a cheap and nasty gimmick (which he would typically undermine with bathos)
PM Dawn i'm willing to bet you liked PM DawnI have a soft spot for arrested development, they were on the word. Along with en vogue who I also have a soft spot for. They're a bit corny, I wouldn't really ever listen to them now. They remind me, from that ear, of 4 non blondes. And spin doctors.
i like geto boys, i bought the album 'til death do us part' years ago. think i got it cos it was namechecked somewhere in connection with schoolly d who is one of my favourites.
