Waist High Turns 5.

1,387 posts, 4 stalkers, and 109,548 page hits later, Waist High is celebrating 5 years!

And with perfect timing, a very special gift arrived from London; my copy of Totally Wired: Post-Punk Interviews and Overviews by Simon Reynolds. 464 pages of goodness:

From the author of the bestselling post-punk history Rip It Up and Start Again comes Totally Wired, a companion book of conversations with the brilliant minds who made the late seventies and early eighties such a creative era for radical music and alternative culture.

Totally Wired features thirty-two interviews with post-punk’s most innovative musicians and colourful personalities - Ari Up, Jah Wobble, David Byrne, Green Gartside, Lydia Lunch, Edwyn Collins - as well as other movers and shakers of the period: label bosses and managers like Anthony H. Wilson and Bill Drummond, record producers such as Trevor Horn and Martin Rushent, and influential DJs and journalists like John Peel and Paul Morley.

Thank you readers for 5 great years! And a very special thank you to the great Richard Evans at
remembertheeighties.com, Faber and Faber Ltd., Simon Reynolds, and everyone else who helps to keep this amazing music alive. Here's to 5 more years!
