NME goes independent

Posted: August 14th, 2004, by Marceline Smith

I’ve just bought the NME in order to get an exclusive Hood track featured on the cover CD (put together by Domino). It feels rather like I have wandered into an alternate reality. All the more so after reading the NME editor’s suckup tribute to independent labels (the irony almost made me laugh out loud). Hood track is marvellous though. Hurry up with album please (which the NME will no doubt ignore).

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
