MIKE IN THE PRESS

Misquoted in the Guardian in an interview about Bob Dylan, Mike sent a long letter (by e-mail) and they turned it into an article - with a picture!

Annoyed by an article by Michael Henderson in the Daily Telegraph, Mike wrote a riposte, defending Dylan and rock music in general.  They printed it!

POP MUSIC AS RITE OF PASSAGE!

Mike has delivered a paper at the 2nd Art of Record Production academic conference hosted by Simon Frith at Edinburgh University on the weekend of the 8th - 10th Sep. 2006. Joe Boyd was a fascinating keynote speaker on the role of the producer and some aspects of this talk will be published in a larger interview in the first issue of the journal shortly. Joe also took part in an industry panel on communication in the studio with Paul Borg, Richard Burgess and Mike.

The paper is a consideration of the function performed by pop music aimed at pre-teen, early-pubescent youth male and female and the way it can act as a rite of passage that enables them to understand and engage with the newfound emotions and urges brought on by puberty. The hormonal changes that are universal to the human condition.


The first 8 papers for the proceedings have just been published on the website.  Mikes paper will be available soon.
