Rebel without a brain: review of Eminem live, from The Guardian. Apparently it’s bad or silly or something for “upper middle class” people to like Eminem – why this should be so goes, as usual, unexplained, possibly because when you actually start working through the implications of the idea that only “street kids” can legitimately like hip-hop all sorts of interesting consequences emerge. I also don’t see Tom Cox demanding social analyses or programmes for improvement from his beloved retro-seventies powerpop bands.
