Shout out to public housing, I brought the whole hood with me

Man like Nick Southall, a few ex-Stylus guys, and some other dudes dragged in off the streets have launched a new blog entitled Rocktimists, which, despite the utterly awful name, I fully expect to deliver the heat over the coming months.

Southall may actually have perfected the Passantino-style “facts x anger = zings” style of review, which the more I think about it, the more I’m convinced is the solitary sop that the group of writers I consider myself a part of make to the IPC dudes (Kulkinari, Parkes, etc) we grew up reading.

Also on board with the Rocktimists is Paul Scott, of never-updated The Empty Page fame. His career highpoint to date was this review of The Kooks on Stylus (which I wrote one whole line of, fact fans), which then got picked up as being real by lots of morons as real. Drowned In Sound and Playlouder have both since deleted the news stories they published about this. Good times, man.
