    Disappointing. Well, it actually made me angry but I'm being far too negative today so I'm not going to say anything.

    I made myself read it all but frankly the opener of ;

    for almost as long as there has been house music, there has been house music in leeds. some of the city’s clubs and club nights can be traced back more than two decades...

    and then didn't at all... well it wasn't a good start.

    Our comprehensive history of Leeds starts in 1994 with amusing mock farmer, scene outsider and not heard of for 15 years Steve Raine... and not forgetting recent addition to the backstory Shane who has pioneered nearly 7 years of clubbing! Not forgetting ancient noble veteran Tristran Laughing Laughing

    I shared my thoughts with Tim on the phone and now feel at peace with Leeds clubbing history.

    I'm currently researching some points in the article and shall deliver a measured reply once I am sure of my facts.

    I knew it was going to be a suspect article the minute I saw a link to it, but I made myself read it anyway.

    To be fair its not that bad I've read worse. Poor grammar though

    Thing is I'm 27 and even I know about the downbeat, industrial scene and indie dance stuff that pre-dates Basics. If he'd not put the word 'history' in it he'd be forgiven a lot more.

    More like the viewpoint of the 3 people he could get hold of. Very skewed viewpoints.

    Me too but mainly because it works against the real story which is that Leeds is indeed very pioneering and ace but doesn't feel the need to shout about it That's the Leeds thing that makes it special for me. It's always the kids and johnny-come-latelies who are evangelical about it. Loiners just know.

    I've no problem with progression, it's what keeps the world turning. What I do have a problem with is poorly informed articles which become gospel. That's the internets fault. Any twat can set up a blog and become a world renowned authority on toilet bleach or such like. Then idiots pick up on it, think it's ace because they know less than the author, quote it over social networking sites and all of a sudden the author is elevated to oracle status. I just want people to try, if you're going to do an article, do some research. At least spend a few weeks gathering material. Don't just go for the easy names, dig a little, make it interesting and worthy of the time I have to take to read it. There are a lot of people in the world who work incredibly hard and get fuck all credit because they don't shout the loudest or wear the brightest t-shirt. The internet ignores these people. No wonder the world is getting dumber.

    Saying all that, why should I care? I probably shouldn't.

    I've written a few things about London and I was always really careful to write only my own experiences and never reach too far beyond them (either sideways or back into history). It's insulting to come over like you know better. Doesn't matter how many decades I've lived here.

    I think to give Leeds it credit it has been pretty pioneering though. We've got some good examples in this very thread.
