On the Blogs

An interesting debate over on the Guardian music blog about the relationship between real life murder and black metal music in Scandinavia. Tenuous, apparently.

Also over at the Guardian, I throw down the gauntlet on the thorny subject of live recordings, specifically the growing trend of buying - legal - recordings of a gig that you'be just attended. An expensive and almost inevitably disappointing exercise, I'd have thought, and entirely contravening the whole point of gig-going. What do you think?
