Nothing new under the sun.

I had been kind of half-planning to write up something on Isn't Anything, but while looking for something for the journal entry I'm writing, I ran into this, and now I'm glad I hadn't got to it yet. Simon Reynolds both goes over the two things that most struck me in a way I wanted to write about (the way "Feed Me With Your Kiss" seems vampiric, the closeness of much of this music) and said lots more besides. And all much more eloquently than I could manage. And, of course, he said it all before I'd even heard of the band.
