Drum n Bass as the punk of the 90's?
An informative Guardian article, by punk theorist and 'Englands Dreaming' author Jon Savage, that compares the socio-political impact of Shy FX's 'Sound of the Beast' at Carnival '94. It draws some interesting comparisons between punk and drum n bass.
It would be interesting to take Hedige's 'Subculture: the theory of style' and apply his ideas about punk to contemporary drum n bass. (Possible dissertation topic?)
