Bugger, lost track of time, if anyone is watching this, or has watched it when it's done, LMK what it was like?

I'm not expecting fair or balanced coverage, and I fully espect anyone who likes alternative music of any type to be portrayed as a nutjob, but, well, y'never know.

I mean, I'm not a fan of Death Metal, and Slayer, well, suck, but I know at least one perfectly well adjusted death metal fan, and I hate it when media scapegoat minority interests instead of look to root causes; let's face it, Ted Bundy blamed Playboy, Columbine was blamed on RPGs, etc, etc. Ah well.

[Edit:] [livejournal.com profile] tyrell has the key quote from the Independent article that isn't online:
"Heavy metal gigs are some of the most non-violent and accepting spaces in the country. If you want to look for places that give rise to fear, hatred and violence, I suggest you look more closely at Churches, Mosques, Parliamentary Chambers and Council Offices."
- Louise Chambers, media researcher and lecturer.
