Empty.org — In Review is a writerly music/culture weblog which reminds me vaguely of the Josh Blog with more ‘attitude’. Two writers, haven’t read through it all yet but there’s a good sense of a dialogue going on, seems stronger on alt.pop than other stuff. It mentions poor old Epic Soundtracks in the most recent entry. He was a nice guy and because of that I’ve never really wanted to listen to his music: I just remember him as a good-natured, shambolic customer who brought in good stuff sometimes and was always friendly, a real rarity in the world of second-hand retail. Then I learned he made records, and then I learned he killed himself. So I never bought the records, because I didn’t want to not like them.
