also the line about Nile Rodgers being denied entry could be in reference to the story he tells about how he and bernard edwards were both denied entry into studio 54 one night after they'd already had a hit with "Dance, Dance, Dance".

they were so angry they went out and wrote a song called "Fuck Off", which by the end of the coke-fueled night became "Freak Out" and later, "Le Freak".

whatever you think, i and others, totally agree with your criticism of s f-j. i details-schmetails, the main argument of your essay is correct.

indie music is not more white, it's just that s f-j can't wrap his tiny brain around broader definitions of what might constitute indie music. (aside: i mean the man totally discounts electronic music which is the MOST independent of all music - often made alone at home, just a guy and his synths...)

but i digress. Hot Chip could mean anything by that lyric, and i and you both could be wrong about it, but one thing we know for certain is that s f-j just doesn't think hard, or enough.

I loved the essay. keep up the good work eric!
