jokes. I wouldn't mind listening to Untrue again alongside that list of samples that disappeared from dubstepforum but I don't have it.

I'd imagine I'll enjoy this more than his actual output, though.

Well, on the eve of DJ Kicks, Burial has ditched his anonymity on his myspace page saying it had become a problem. Its sad that he obviously felt pressurised to do this and quite a brave thing to do.

Its ok though, i just checked, the music's still great ;)

Wasn't someone on here suggesting that Burial was actually some other artist in disguise and that the interviews with him were fake? Is that not so and he is just some ordinary bloke?

Main reason he did it was because The Sun started a little witch hunt to unmask him. Which in itself was only as a result of his Mercury nomination. Guy who's written the articles is an absolute tit btw. But not surprising given he's a journalist for The Sun.

This has put me in mind of the Chris Morris wind-up that was put on a single given away with Select I think.

I am going to copy and paste what happened this week from an email I sent out to a couple of mates yesterday.

First, Gordon Smart printed this in his 'Bizarre' column about Burial on monday:


He conducted a Bizarre phone interview where he confessed: “Only five people know I make tunes.”

Except that was a total lie, that quote was from my face-to-face (not phone) interview in The Guardian. The quote was the headline to the article for god's sake, Smarting probably lifted it straight off Wikipedia.

I complained about this plagiarism about three times before I got a response. I was fobbed off with a lie about it being a subbing error:


this was a subbing error. Bizarre was lower case when I left the office. I wasn't passing it off as my own. I actually thought it was from The Wire?

This explanation is clearly twaddle. Gordon Smart sent a follow-up apologising, repeating the excuse, and offering me money, which of course I turned down:


Totally understand, and feel quite bad about it. It would drive me mad too as it had appeared. A bad mistake which I have slapped the wrists of a sub for. No ill-intentions I can assure you.

The thing is, by Wednesday he still hadn't found the time to correct the (much linked-to) original story, which was still claiming that Burial had given a phone interview to The Sun. I wrote him this email - in which, note, I specifically said the attribution did not need to name me:


since people are still linking to this article from the other day can you PLEASE get the online version changed immediately and correctly attribute it - it doesn't have to be to me, just the guardian - just not to bizarre. just change it so that you aren't continuing to claim it as your own 'phone' interview.

He then edited it to this, to make me look like a craven egotistical bastard:


He conducted a bizarre phone interview with music journalist Dan Hancox, who got his knickers in a twist when he didn't get a mention, where he confessed: "Only five people know I make tunes."

That is the end of a fucking shitty story. I was going to report him to the Press Complaints Commission but on the advice of the big man himself I'm going to allow him and move on. I would add that I think the Dubluke stuff is absolute gold though :)

Of course, its entirely up to you, Dan, but I reckon you should report him. I know it sounds so obvious not to expect even a modicum of journalistic integrity or professionalism from The Sun but its not really on is it? A broadsheet wouldn't get away with it. And Smart seems such a pathetic little twat that its the least he deserves. Didn't even have the balls to admit his glaring error in public in even the most small-scale of ways (i.e. merely remove your name and credit it solely to an interview in the Guardian). But hey, maybe its not even worth the effort.

If I can go to all the hassle of registering with the sun and leaving a comment complaining (still unpublished), then the least you can do is report the wankers. ;)

why the hell is everyone so excited about a dj set by someone who no-ones heard play out? whats everyone expecting? hes gone on record to say itd be probably be a load of old jungle and maybe a new track. Do people think he'll play his sample sources? ie is insane?

in fact considering his record sales have gone up 360% or something (i am taking the metro as a source for this so it may be rubbish) since the mercury nominations how long till record companies start spotting bits and kode has to get himself a brief? that list may have disapered from dsforum but now the tabloids are involved in digging dirt up on the man its not a huge stretch of the imagination- 'Mercury Nominee's album made entirely of uncleared samples'

This is a bit roundabout but the same question was asked on another message board and Martyn (the same) replied, after asking Burial or Kode9, and said that they had gotten permission for most of the samples after the record was released.

Good work - were you involved in that happening? On the other hand, I wonder how many Sun readers read Private Eye? It's really his own readers who ought to see the way he's acted although I like to thing the SofS thing will be at least a minor irritation. I'll probably buy it this month anyway so I'll look out for the story.

yeah it's quite a petty and insubstantial kind of vengeance, but i enjoyed it :) - and yeah, i told private eye, at the suggestion of a fellow journo. i feel bad that private eye says i'm the only person who has interviewed burial though, that's just an error on their part - sorry martin, sorry nine, sorry k-punk!
