GOOD READ

The Guardian on how message boards and online forums in the 2000s created a new musical culture for fans:

"When I think of the giddy high points of early 00s pop – from Beyoncé’s Crazy in Love to the Knife’s Heartbeats – that surge of discussion is inseparable from the music and the dancing, all part of the excitement."

Thanks for listening!
