The Idler tackles Albion: it’s that old chestnut ‘English music’ again, though the Idler’s take on it seems a bit stuck in the past. “But in the Eighties, there didn’t seem to be much to connect music to the country. Radio fodder like the Duran Duran opus “Seven And The Ragged Tiger” said little, and even less about UK life.” – oh really? Simon Le Bon’s Diana cut, dumbness and hungry eyes said a hell of a lot more to me about UK life than Van Morrison will ever likely manage.
