The ‘new weird America’


General Culture

In an interview, Thurston Moore describes Northampton, where I now live, as “the centre of a scene that people are calling ‘new weird America’”. As much as any such statement (which includes claims by people only referred to as “people”) needs to be taken with a grain (or two) of salt, I kind of like that description (because it gives living in Northampton this kind of aura - which is probably why TM said that in the first place, but never mind).
