    The thing that a lot of people don't realise or remember about Mark, particularly those who only came across the Capitalist Realist version, is that part of him wanted to be a pop star. The medallion dated to a moment when he almost convinced himself he was one. It wasn't just the medallion, he developed a look. The model was John Foxx, but it also looked slightly Gary Numan. It was a brief phase, I think, back end of 2004 into 2005, but it definitely happened. I don't think I hallucinated it.

    It actually makes perfect sense when you think about it, that he would have that aspiration, as he had faith in culture, in art, and if you think a lot about culture and art, you naturally want to have a go in some way. Like, most good critics, before they become critics, theyve had a go in some small way. Its to be expected. All the various techy people in the music biz, theyve all had a go.

    Just a bit surprising that he would have a medallion (maybe its that word though, would ‘chain’ be a better one?). But in some ways it all fits and is quite humanising in a way.

    Of course not. We’re British.

    interesting mix - there's a good 80s postpunk vibe one about 20 mins in. very arty mix is suppose, i can imagine going into a white cube and laying on a smelly beanbag and listening to it really loud. what do people think of mark leckey huh? perhaps this is the wrong thread, but i like him, i keep an eye out, even though i've not seen much of his live stuff. i like that fiorucci vid. and i like how he's from the north and is into motorway bridges.

    there's a tumblr for kpunk stuff by the way, https://4kpunk.tumblr.com/ which is where this is from.

    i wonder if that goth-something guy who did a few posts here mentions the medallion in his book??

    The one from like 17 min to 21? I dunno the song but surely that's Gen P Orridge singing appropriately enough.

    I just picked up his book (Matt Colquhoun- Egress) enjoyed the introduction so far. One for the hours ahead.

    Can't help but think Kpunk would have had much to say about Corona, virology and self isolation.
