Its not a straight interview, but a 'think piece' about why the single has been censored by the BBC, while their own license ads use a song about heroin use (Perfect day).
I also have a dig at the media's knee jerk reactions, however I do offer my own criticism of the lyrics - which might not go down too well!
I think the feature will be online aswell. I'll let you know.
PS any thoughts on the new Primal Scream single?
the cover to bgat has been designed by Jimmy Turrell and Richard Turvey. Richard is the art editor at 7 (i used to be managing editor at 7 - which is a UK dance mag, us version called Mixer - in case you've not heard of it). Jimmy is 7's main illustrator. 7 is published by DMC,who were responsible for Mixmag back in the days of the offending prod article. 7 was launched after they sold mixmag to emap. in many ways DMC (the publishers)were more responsible for the offensive angle that mixmag were taking at that time than the editors...
so... ironic that the DMC team are now designing for prodigy!!!
Saturday Telegraph liked it, Q slated it (surprise surprise!)
if any of you see any reviews would you ket me know?
oh, and i'm planning on doing a supplement to the book later on to cover the new album etc. this will be inexpensive, and will not carry any old info, just up to dat new stuff....
the cover blurb reads:
"Martin James is one of the most conscientious, outspoken and honest writers working in music today --- and he's not afraid to cry!"
Annie Nightingale MBE
Drawn from seven years of exclusive interviews and written by long time band friend (and occasional official record company biographer) Martin James, PRODIGY is the ultimate account of the greatest electronic punk band that ever existed.
From the free party anarchy of the Prodigy
any suggestions? (keeping in mind the fact that the book won't only be read by well informed fans like yourselves.
