golden (brown) years

As reported everywhere else already, Simon Reynolds has a new book out called Rip It Up and Start Again about post-punk ('78-'84 by his reckoning). Via Largehearted Boy, here's a nice piece he's written in The Guardian about the period. I'm looking forward to the book - I haven't read anything music-related since I was on holiday, where I raced through Simon Ford's book about The Fall - I hadn't realised he'd also written that Throbbing Gristle book I didn't buy at the Punk Exhibition in New Zealand all those years ago (I'd picked up the Encyclopedia of Indie and New Wave, and didn't have room for much else).

Got my copy of the new Reynolds book in the mail the other day. I cheated and read a few random bits, although I plan to read it properly from start to finish. Somehow I suspect I'm going to end up buying some music...
