It was quite good until he said there was a link between the rave scene and modernism!!!!!The only link I can think of is popping pills for dancing all-night.A very thin link.

Many thanks to Babyshambler for the link alas it certainly never told me anything I didn't already know. Old clichés and the same tired old views.
