Don't worry - I won't be polite for too long. I'll be back to my
old self before long.
- My original point was that some DJ, can't remember who (someone good
though), copped a lot of flack for playing his own tracks in a mix -
this was no more than a year ago. I quite agree with Mr. Craig's
analysis, and Arfie... phew... the world hasn't ended (;-}).
On a chart, especially in a magazine, where lots of punters who won't
have heard of Hybrid (heathens) are reading an artist's chart and
finding that they're placing themselves at the top, well, it smacks
of arrogance - if the punter in question likes the other tracks in
the list then cool, but if not they probably won't revisit the
concept of Hybrid for some time.
That was all.
