Entertainment can sometimes be hard



I'll also be belatedly launching Uncommon at Bookmarks on Tuesday the 27th September, at 6.30pm. The second actual print review of my largely unnoticed diamat book on Pulp is now in the Wire, and very sweet it is. If you would like to review it my email address is adjacent, but here are some online reviews that were very welcome - the wonderfully named Musical Urbanism, a great Hegel-quoting one at Red Mist Reviews, also ...i can stay and Adelle Stripe's Dark Satanic Mills, who also draws welcome attention to Lisa Cradduck's etchings that so enliven the book; Lisa is also offering signed editions of them via Adelle.


Here are some of the usual bits and bobs - not much in the way of new writing due to moving house and finishing my PhD (but viva still pending). More at Urban Trawl; a review of a compendious book on Communist Fashion in the current Radical Philosophy; a review of two oddly prescient books on the estates of Hackney, for Icon; see also this. There's also some contributions to anthologies or other people's books which I keep meaning to plug on here: I have a 'modest proposal' for Sheffield in Julie Westerman's lovely Brutalist Speculations and Flights of Fancy; a long essay on Brutalism and Heritage for Regenerating Culture and Society; an essay on the early, good stuff in BDP's self-immortalising Continuous Collective; an interview with the artist on post-Soviet metropolis and wilderness in Ruth Maclennan's monograph Anarcadia; and an expanded version of the Soviet chapter from Militant Modernism (with added material based on, like, actually visiting Russia) is in the excellent Star City - The Future Under Communism. But more, much more than this, I've blurbed Andrew Jordan's very fine HMP Haslar socio-fantasy Bonehead's Utopia, which is essential reading.

That pic looks empty without the Tinsley Towers! What are your views on the recent art park news? In my opinion it will always be difficult to attract visitors to an art installation next to a sewage works.

I meant to tell you earlier that I esp. enjoyed your Guardian piece about the post-riot evictions, and was really happy to have a lucid argument I could employ in conversations (I am often incapable of lucidity all on my own).

hi owen.
i read your book in the weekend and found it great. pulp was a reference point also for my teenage in rome and i found in your thoughts a lot of the thoughts i had at that time, coming out of the side-lines too. although i like this is hardcore (the album) more than you do.
inspired by some of your remarks (i especially indulged in the "sex, class and urbanism" trinity) i just wrote a piece on italian football players, pulp, albert finney, sex-as-revenge and class on the blog about football (lacrime di borghetti) i share with some friends. i ignore if you can read italian but anyway i wanted to tell you. ciao!
