Readers, are you the sort of person that posts Jady Goody RIP messages to your friends Facebook account? Then this is the column for you!

I’m going to use this Mr. Agreeable post to just say a reciprocal hello and thanks to some of the folks who’ve linked to AMP recently.

Firstly I meant to highlight the Cactus Mouth Informer blog to you all a while ago, where you can find scans from Zig Zag and Record Mirror from the years preceeding this blog, along with mp3’s and socialist musings. I know Simon Reynolds specifically mentioned his desire to see scans from Zig Zag to me in an email so hope highlighting it here and adding it to the related blog links helps others too. Also, Look At This, a good blog aggregating lots of interesting links and there’s more like this but with extra German over at Nerdcore. Finally cheers to ex XFM DJ Iain Baker and his Westway blog.

After the Loop interview something more conventional. David Stubbs is persuaded that Mark E. Smith is maligned only by idiots. Should probably also hilight the reference to the fanzine When Saturday Comes in the fourth paragraph, as I know some of you take an interest in such matters.

On the day Jade Goody gets married there’s sage comment from Mr. Agreeable.

“Do you yearn for notoriety? Then you’re probably a c***”

I wonder what the Mark Coyle from 1991 might have written to his future self if this interesting website had been available back then?

Still nothing from any of the former featured c***’s.

We haven’t had one of these for a while so here we go again. That 8 Storey Window single advertised below was an absolute smash wasn’t it?

David Stubbs interviews Kraftwerk, 20th July 1991

At least Stubbs has been consistent in his love of krautrock as evidenced in this piece from 1991. Mueller’s 5,000 word articles in praise of Cuntry. A. Bumpkin and his ilk, being conspicuously absent from the pages of the Maker during the 90’s.

Which leaves me wondering when exactly did this bizarre affliction strike Mueller to such a debilitating degree. Is it the result of some sort of recent mid-life crisis or perhaps an unluckly side effect of diligent, socio-political globe trotting. “I’ve been around the world and I, I, I….I just love Nashville boy”

Nein, danke!
