A great Mike Moorcock interview and quite topical considering what's going on in London at the moment.

"Michael Moorcock: “I think Tolkien was a crypto-fascist”"
http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/2015/07/michael-moorcock-i-think-tolkien-was-crypto-fascist


An extract ...

You can’t go home again. The last time Michael Moorcock visited Notting Hill – once the countercultural cradle of his dimension-spanning science fantasies and home to the author, his young family and one of his best-loved creations, the polymorphous ­secret agent and flâneur Jerry Cornelius – he “pitched an absolute fit”, according to his Texan wife, Linda. The old, febrile Notting Hill of squats and squalor had long given way to iceberg houses, billionaires’ basements and the well-tended tedium of extreme wealth. The last straw came when Moorcock witnessed a woman getting out of her four-by-four wearing jodhpurs. “He was raving about this,” Linda recalls with amusement.

“The place made me feel ill,” Moorcock admits wearily. The writer and psychogeographer Iain Sinclair, a friend of his, had brought Moorcock back in order to film reminiscences of his old stomping ground. “But it had become unbelievably horrible on every level,” he says. “I mean, Notting Hill had been a place of horror and violence in the 1960s and 1970s. My mother daren’t visit us. Next door was always knife fights and the police. But it was cheap and that’s what you need as a writer with a young family. Now look at it. It’s people in jodhpurs.”

interesting, Steam !
I'm not really too much of a fan of that film genre, but that's the idea of what I feel is largely missing from a lot of modern music. I put it down to artists too often relying on digital and sampled sounds, or just the run of the mill. I think you can make all of those sounds with an electric guitar, but it requires the same level of experimentation and inventiveness to do it, using other household objects and appliances along with them. there is almost no end to what can be done

"Rocking the Stasi"
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-40447191

"When music captures the spirit of freedom it can cross any border. In 1961, Communist East Germany built a wall across Berlin, and tried to seal itself off from the West. But new research shows how concrete, barbed wire and a huge effort by the secret police, the Stasi, failed to silence the seductive beat of rock and roll and punk."

Fascinating interview from Ian McNay/Cherry Red.
Answers on the HW chapter very vague.
