This week, Riley (@raaleh) and Milo (@milo_edwards) host journalist and music enthusiast Dan Hancox (@danhancox) to discuss his new book ‘Inner City Pressure: the Story of Grime.’ After a loving review of Elon Musk’s one-for-the-history-books Meltdown May, the team converses on the history (and rebirth) of grime, pirate radio, gentrification, ASBOs, Form 696, Matt Hancock, and the classic Tory oscillation between criminalising youth culture and profiting massively from it.
Hussein (@HKesvani) couldn’t make it, as he’s on deadline for a piece about Conservative-voting men who are tattooing images of ham on their faces to own the libs. It will be forthcoming soon, and he will of course return.
You can (and should) purchase Dan’s book here, preferably from a high street bookstore and not from The Steroid Book Man himself: https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Dan-Hancox/Inner-City-Pressure--The-Story-of-Grime/21136553
Riley finally remembered to read the shout-outs. Remember, you can always commodify your dissent with a t-shirt from Lil’ Comrade. In fact, you’d better: http://www.lilcomrade.com/
Nate (@inthesedeserts) produced this episode with Adobe Audition and a particularly American kind of patriotic fervour that comes only from wearing flag-themed Rick and Morty t-shirts.
