It starts off well, but I ended up skipping a lot of the stuff in the middle about Ghost Box etc. It's all a bit sloppily presented too; lots of typos and the Burial interview's been chopped about and doesn't quite make sense in places. It's also very repetitive, but I guess that's to be expected. I quickly got fed up with reading the term "lost futures" over and over, also "popular modernism" and the stuff about 70s social democracy.Started Ghosts of My Life earlier.
Burial: My Dad when I was really little, sometimes he used to read me M R James stories. On the South Bank last year, I was walking along, and I found a book of M R James ghost stories. I bunked that day off from my day job and I got this book, and now I’m well into M R James ghost stories.
Wire: You’re joking, really?
