Myths of the near past

I promise I won't bang on about this, but ... I've got a chapter appearing in a forthcoming book, Throwback 2007. The volume is about the music released that year and is edited by my Kiwi pal, wordsmith and inveterate list-maker Nick Ascroft. My contribution tells the story of ex-Arab Strap man Malcolm Middleton's unlikely bid for the Christmas #1 spot. Here's Nick saying nice things about it (as well as talking about the concept for the book, the art of making lists, the vagaries of musical fashion and personal taste, and his own poetry) in conversation with Pip Adam on the Better Off Read podcast.
