We are featured in this month’s The Wire so hello if you came from there. It’s a flattering write-up which credits Freaky Trigger with being one of the originators’ of music blogging online and also has some well-deserved praise for a few of the links on the right. NYLPM did have a big impact on people starting music weblogs I think but it wasn’t the originator – I got the idea from Josh, whose blog is surely the longest-running online music thing of this kind (weekly or even daily review sites aren’t really the same thing). It’s still going, it’s still good, though the days when it was on every links list are sadly long gone: but if you’re interested in the origins and potential of personal music diaries/blogs online then Josh Blog is I reckon the real Godfather.
