i'm not quite sure what to make of this lot, (linked to recently by robin carmody) ... while you kind of have to admire their drive and chutzpah, not sure if blagging grants and subsidies is really what the nuum is all about, if indeed that is what they are referencing with the moniker/brand 'hardcore is more than music' (and all the articles about grime and sub-lo would suggest it is...)

also kinda on the "branding generation" tip, this lotdon't seem to quite have a grip on the philosophy of the Situationiste International. they certainly have come up with an extensively mangled reading of me and Paul Oldfield's way way back in the day critique of the Situationist influence in pop

nice to Vaneigem's name mentioned here, always my fave Situationist
