back in the 90s, I used to read andrew weatherall and terry farley's music reviews in the dance press - very, very entertaining, acerbic, bile-filled commentary on the increasing sterility of UK dance music which made for great reading. weatherall's slot on heidi from phonica's R1 show the other week was next level comedy - completely showed her up when she said "I've never heard of Ten City. I play house and techno"
sheridan is very funny too - a great wit, although I think he is barking at times
some of the american jocks I find painfully earnest or hypocritical - when people like Louie Vega or green velvet get on their high horse about the UK/drugs, when they know full well the new york disco scene revolved around the white stuff is just cringeworthy.
then you have the drama queens - the likes of stacey pullen writing rants on their myspace page about being denied entry to clubs for wearing fedora hats. Entertaining but not really that insightful. Laurent Garnier likes to talk - MAN he likes to talk! - but who can remember anything original he ever said?
I think Moby is quite sincere in his hatred of the US right - but that didn't stop him sucking The Man's cock when whoring his records out
Mr C is quite politicised - although not read any of his blogs for ages - see also Mark Moore and Graeme Park who occasionally comment on stuff on trustthedj.com
For VERY funny anecdotes, I gotta recommend the Juan Maclean myspace blog - great stories from their tours. Of all the DFA crew, they have the great potential to cross over and their sense of humour does help. All the DFA stable are quite politicised - you're going to be when the mayor of your city has declared war on dance culture.
of all the big UK names that emerged from the 90s, only Norman Cook really still has a political sensibility - staunchly Labour and still active. Norman Jay is very establishment these days. The rest of the angry acid house generation who fought the CJA wars all grew up, became middle aged, in the case of irvine welsh started penning columns in the telegraph, or in the case of faith still passionately fly the underground hedonists' flag but without the energy and anger of 20 years ago.
hope that is of some use, grego
