Preview: Da Capo’s Best Music Writing 2008

Page 1, or at least it should be. Soho the Dog turns out great posts the way the rest of us turn out passable to-do lists, but this latest – on the Gospelization of the Star Spangled Banner at Tuesday’s 9/11 commemoration – is really outstanding. Mwanji’s worrying at the moment about what a music blog should be, more than a scrapbook of music – I’d say Soho’s post is an ideal world response: detailed, technical, fully illustrated, unpatronising and, most importantly of all, absolutely in step with the moment. These things, and more, together aren’t possible within any other medium.
