The Light that Pours Out of Me

The mention of The Smiths in my previous post reminded me, in an oblique way, of a fantastic gig that I went to last week. Morrissey and Radiohead have both been known to cover songs by this seminal post punk band, and the gig itself was superb - really showing that not only can bands reforming (sometimes) be a good idea, but also that some music really stands the test of time and that music made thirty years ago can still be relevant, important and modern. The band, of course, were Magazine. A clip from the gig, supplied by my dear friend Bob the Chiropodist, can be found here.

"Hi:

Two things

1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on Frontline for our website

2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]

Frontline is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

What’s in it for you?
Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.

Thanks
