Brand? BRAND?!! It’s a motherfucking music paper, you corporate assholes.
I admire Krissi’s self-belief and her lack of perspective: it’s what always kept me strong during my U.K. music press years.
the editor of the NME reacts to the news PJ Harvey has become the first artist to win the Mercury Prize twice

Either the NME covers political bands, in which case their editor’s statement is nonsense. Or it doesn’t. In which case, their editor’s statement is meaningless.
