Nick Drake – A Gay Perspective

Nick Drake – A Gay Perspective: recent articles on Drake have tended to suggest that in fact he was a bit of a womaniser. This article, though, led me to this list of articles on the man, which includes Ian MacDonald’s vast overview of his work, the kind of in-depth piece for which we can forgive Mojo all sorts of pomposity, even if I don’t agree with everything MacDonald says.

Drake’s albums have of course now been reissued, placing the capstone on the process of canonisation which the records have undergone these past five years. You may be sick of hearing about him, but they are damn good. Unfortunately the remastering and reissuing process has shoved Time Of No Reply, the outtakes and final tracks collection, into pop history’s bottom drawer, annoying since I never got round to buying it.
