    i guess this is news …

    a few weeks back i went into the hmv on oxford st (the one closest to selfridges) + in their display cabinet is a large-ish b + w pic of j on the mic … as it turns out it’s part of a promotion of a new book (associated w/london’s alternative radio station, xfm) called the a to x of alternative music … i flipped thru the book + it seems to be a fairly decent who’s who reference book of alternative music … just thought i’d let everyone know …

    btw, the pic’s in the book as well + must have been taken when j "hijacked" xfm in sept of 2000 … :wink:

    a little blurb about the author :

    Steve Taylor presents The A To X Of Alternative Music on London based radio station Xfm. Since its inception, Xfm has championed *alternative* music and played an important part in the recent resurgence of guitar music in the UK.

    Sounds like a really good book. I’m looking around right now for a cheap price (bit poor right now)
    Thanks for the info

    even though the website above has the book listed as £14.99, i’m fairly sure hmv had it for £11.99 … so if you live near an hmv you could always try there …

    as far as j hijacking xfm is concerned … the xfm hijack is a weekly program where an artist is invited in to take over the station + play whatever they want for an hour … unfortunately the xfm online archives don’t go that far back :(

    On October 22nd, 2000 J had did the "Hijack XFM" show,
    there are 2 FreakScene topics about it from that time with J’s playlist (the topics have been transferred from an earlier FreakScene bbs, thus the info who posted them has got lost)

    and here’s the book on hmv.co.uk for £11.99: A To X Of Alternative Music
