April Is for Updates

I’ve emerged from my burrow after a busy fall and winter. Apparently, the last time I posted was August 24th. Since then I have: 1) gotten married. Best day of my life. 2) finished my manuscript for Nothing Has Been Done Before and sent it to Bloomsbury. 3) become addicted to political news again. 4) […]

Catching Up: Ties That Bind and More

My latest column at PopMatters is up: “Bruce Springsteen, ‘The Ties That Bind,’ the Working Class and Authenticity.” Which pretty much explains what the column is about.

Updates: Ties That Bind, Blind Engineer and More

My new column is up at PopMatters here. “A Town Called Malice” takes a look at the state of working-class music from the US to the UK. As you might guess, it grew out of thinking about The Jam, one of my favs, after watching the recent documentary About the Young Idea. I hope this […]
