"New Rave"

If it wasn't enough for the NME to pat themselves on the back for:

1) Growing the Libertines in a test tube and selling them to the world as the one true poetic voice of indie,

2) Creating the word "emo" thus inspiring an army of angst driven American teenagers and 20 somethings from Wales,

3) Convincing everyone that it's actually cool to re-release your first single 4 times, thusly encouraging a whole world of other 2 bit indie bands to do the same,

They've now gone and labelled a music scene I rather enjoy "New Rave". Yes, don't choke on your cornflakes, you are reading this correctly. Glorious electro stompers by the likes of the Presets, Justice, Erol "fookin" Alkan and the Klaxons are no longer merely crossover bangers, but they (and the dj's that play them, like me) are now labelled with this tag. When clubs start proclaiming this form of music as their policy I'll know it's time to truly start acting my age and take up golf.
