What the NME should be more like

I'm happy to poke a stick in the side of the NME when it's required, so credit where credit's due: Gavin Haynes piece on South Africa's indie music scene, and the extra bits online, is refreshing and welcome. It's a pity that it feels out of step with the magazine's general Kings Of Oasis drift, and while Wire would almost certainly have made the same trip and come up with a different soundtrack, that's not actually a bad thing.
