I have a very good friend and colleague, who I have been badgering to start blogging, tweeting, and generally moving into the digital world of the 21st century.

Partly because I get excited about that kind of thing (see: everything I've written on this site. And the fact that this site exists…), and partly because I'd like to know more about what is going on in the world of music, which I increasingly hear about through him.

So, I was pretty pleased recently when – presumably through someone else's insistence (I had long since since given up) he started writing a blog about various music related things.

If music has an important place in your life, I would recommend that you have a look. A couple of good starting points — Mobile phones and pop music and a narrative context for music.

Oh - and he has written a book of the same name, which is a great read. Watch out for the film…

(Also worth noting - I'm in the band.)
