Alongside the book, I am creating a broader, more detailed history of the UK music press, including weekly blog-posts about this project and topics arising, and a fortnightly podcast featuring Hazel Southwell and me (where she gets to quiz me on about things I hadn't thought to explain). Help us cover costs and contribute to the emerging conversation!

PODCAST 1:
The Pilot, explaining the background to the project and my reasons for starting it
PODCAST 2:
The NME: some topical thoughts on the demise of the print format of the last UK music weekly
PODCAST 3:
Punk Rock as it felt at the time on the page

ESSAY 1:
On Morrissey and bigotry in the 80s: why it wasn't spotted sooner
ESSAY 2:
RIP Tom Wolfe: his legacy for UK music-writers and what he got wrong
ESSAY 3:
John Lennon's Revolutions 50 Years On: how his contradictory
positions and acts shaped the music press in years to come
ESSAY 4:
The eight-and-a-half pillars of true punk (and how some are false)
