NY Mirror: Fly Life: har har Electroclash backlash but even if the scene is a desperate retread of times past, this article isn’t saying much new either. Put down your drum machines and go and listen to some funk jams, kids! – like that was an original angle in 1982, let alone 2002.

That said (making believe here that anyone reading this is making music!) an embargo on mentioning the 1980s is clearly necessary (something Ronan got right by example in his article) – especially if you’re ripping them off. For one thing it annoys a lot of people when you deny obvious influences, and that’s fun – for another you might start believing yourself.
