You know those people who you read, and you're like, "Goddamn it, how does he/she do it, all smart and witty and at ease and able to do things like draw connections between German/Detroit techno and baseball, while I'm sitting here trying not to use the phrase 'lugubrious bassline' for the third time this month?" And you're all, "Fuck that guy!" and then you just go back to reading him/her in a sort of seasick awe.
Yeah, I hate that too.
(But Andy: Don't give up on Italic! The last few singles have been corkers, at least the hella trancy Einmusik track on the Minimal Allstars 12" (ITA 038), and the M.I.A. remix on the new Skua Lovelle (ITA 041).)
