A rock version of Flaubert’s Dictionary of Received Ideas is a long-cherished project of mine. Like most of my long-cherished projects, somebody’s gone and done it while I sat on my arse: hats off to Jonathan Valania for this magnificent parody of rockism, canon-building, and the assorted banalities and brainfarts that pass as music press opinion these days. Quoting it would do it an injustice – but be sure and e-mail him for the (even funnier, I hope) full-length version.
