IT'S 1985 AGAIN - BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT

The unexpected influence of Paolo Hewitt on 21st-century music writing creeps into
even wider waters.

Still, I am extremely grateful to Mr Reynolds, for his parade of long-lost memes such as "ideology," "passionate," "get worked up" and "late capitalism" unintentionally spills the beans; Ariel Pink, Matmos and Hot Chip are this decade's own Faith Brothers, Billy Bragg and Big Sound Authority. The Wire of 2006 = the NME of 1985. And stretch a point for Stephen Merritt as 2006's very own Steven "All reggae is vile" Morrissey.

Phew. That's a relief!
