‘with all of history on offer at once, what will we remember as being ‘now’?’

In fact, according to speculative internet music writers (just like me), in the last five years the UK has enjoyed a garage revival, a jungle revival, a drum & bass revival, a disco revival, a house revival, and an industrial techno revival. We are trapped in a perpetual state of revivalism, looking so far back we’ve forgotten which way we’re supposed to be facing.
