Why are you saying calm down exactly? I've got a feeling you might be misreading something here. Maybe missing a bit of context?
Cos the only ever looking to Black America attitude is archetypical of the wigger, which is endemic to both sides of this debate.Why are you saying calm down exactly? I've got a feeling you might be misreading something here. Maybe missing a bit of context?
that's just not true though. plenty of nosebleed techno got played at places like Knowledge, eurobeat 2000 etc. the problem is Simon's view of techno stems from the wire magazine, not places like The Orbit in Moreley.As numerous older members of the forum have noted with indulgent frustration you often get confused about things because you're young and you don't appreciate the historical situation. Techno was positioned as noble black art for the sophisticated dancefloor. Hardcore was noise trash for ecstasy delinquents.
well if you get paid to write about this shit it's on you to make your criticisms informed.No, I don't. I've got no idea what you mean. No one was accusing degeorgio of being from Detroit! He was being pilloried for his position as a fan, not as an artist. No one ever listened to or bothered to criticise his music.
Britain is (was?) musically segregated. The type of people who were freewheeling people who went between white post-punk and Black American imports generally ended up being people like Dave Clarke or Andrew Weatherall, playing nosebleed electro and techno.I'm sorry I just dont understand where you're coming from
