Anyone got a copy / scan? May have to do some furtive reading in WH Smiths...

Could be the end of dubstep as we know it if NME jump on the bandwagon. There'll be stnuc in tight black jeans spazzing out to skream tracks inbetween the gossip and get cape, wear cape, die in gay discos all over the country :roll:

Just spied this on blackdown's blog...

I recently got an email from Jamie Smith, formerly known as grime producer Dr Venom from the True Tiger Camp, now known as part of indie/grime band Hadouken, who Logan amusingly suggested could suck his ballbag recently. Jamie asked me if I'd answer some questions on the interaction between technology and grime/dubstep, and as everytime I answer a query like this, it detracts from my blog, I thought I'd share my answers here.

Then today, I get a call from the NME asking about a dubstep primer they're running, which has a Hadouken boxout as part of it. Apparently indie clubs are having "a dubstep hour". Eeek. Ah well, my primary gripe with the NME (and all the powerful rock press) is that they're so narrowly monocultural, so I won't complain when indie clubs embrace the bass.


I fucking hate hadouken purely for using that word and some retard explaining it in depth how they came to find it relating to their music or some crap. It's a sound effect. Off a game. Where either fireballs are sent from the hands or a physically impossible spinning uppercut is performed. Nothing to do with music. I'm not in a great mood today.

ok i've read the article, and in all fairness, it's not that bad. seems quite accurate as well

it goes on a bit though about how some people in the klaxons and in this band called the macabees rate dubstep, so therefore so should nme readers. also, the tag line ' the best new music, first' is kinda missing the mark...maybe if this article had been a year ago.

That it i'm jumping ship. You can have you NME celebrated "urban" music. Im off to listen to some heavy Pergolesi or some Scarlatti. On second thoughts, I'm about to go to camden. I could just walk around with my DMZ t shirt gettin bare impressionable gash like "yeah im into dubstep. What you to?" " I make it, you can come back to mine and have a listen if you want".

Oh dear.

I saw this earlier and it's been pissing me off all day......

It's hardly snobbishness, but having one page a lot of with bright colours and some shitty indie celebrity describing 'dubstep' is wank. Twats. Then having the nme awards a few pages later about ageing homophobe. jumping when they say so to their shockwaves and topman rock'n'roll skipping rope.......

Fuck it. Down the pub for me.

Yeah, but do we hate the NME because they don't give dubstep enough coverage or because they do give it coverage thereby causing dubstep nights to fill up with twats in tight jeans?

has anyone ever tried reading nme front to back in the last five years? i don't know what the big fuss is about.
10 years ago, it was a very different newspaper. these days that rag is pure crap.

find the old nme stuff , like this. real researched journalism.

I actually found a copy on a bus earlier on me way back from work. I have NEVER read NME, but.... what a load of bollocks.
It embodies everything I hate about commercialism, and journalism for that matter.
