    Now is the future without the embarrassing aesthetic baggage that comes with it.

    jungle was in pursuit of Now, metalheadz in pursuit of the future.

    jungle's brilliant and metalheadz is cringe-inducingly embarrassing.

    Fair enough. you'll have a hard time convincing the musicians though. They keep doing things like giving themselves the name 'Future'

    Futurism is actually underrated. Also slandered.

    it also speaks to the eternal craner conundrum. a man who wanks to jackie onasis, watches old football matches and won't post a song from from after 1998 steps in to defend the future.

    futurism as a political platform always ends in genocide.

    Obviously I share all of bartys prejudices, particularly against metalheadz, but you can't purge music of science fiction, it's too central to it. Terminator, predator, the matrix, running man, total recall, it's all in the dna

    it restrains the imagination. strangles it and limits to a set of tropes defined in the late-50's.
