a round up selection from the Retromania UK promo blitz:

my Guardian G2 cover story essay "The Shock of the Old"
(the 250-plus comments are well worth perusing: in agreement and disagreement alike they are unusually well argued and informative)

previous week's Times extract (a remix of Retromania's introduction) is trapped behind the Murdoch pay wall but the Irish Times piece can be found here

Herald interview is not online for some reason but can be found at at writer Neil Cooper's blog

interview with Dan Fox for Frieze magazine

The Quietus interview with me by Colin McKean

The Oxonian Review interview with me by Alex Niven

also at Oxonian Review, a review by Adam Harper, one of the few that conveys something of the book's full scope, with further comment at his blog Rouge's Foam. [Tendentious, moi? ;)]

another sharp review, from Sukhdev Sandhu for The Observer

and another, by Patrick Sawer, in the Sunday Telegraph

some web content generated for the online arm of BBC Radio 4's Today show (on which I appeared with grime fan Annie Nightingale)

interview with me on Radcliffe & Maconie's BBC 6 radio show

interview with me on Richard King's All Things Reconsidered show on Domino Radio

and look out for the interview with Jarvis Cocker on his BBC 6 show
