James McMahon's Last Day

It's James McMahon's last day at the NME today. (That links to a fountain of his polemic) James is basically the last battalion of the old regime of NME - "the rock mag".

He's going on to edit a website for rock and roll fans. Here at CONglamourART, we're not entirely sure what "rock and roll" is. We're told it's what happens if after a musician writes a song, rather than transcribing it to a full orchestral score or synth pop greatness, they just add some drums and a bass line. Crazy.

PopBitch gave him some great coverage yesterday, which McMahon shook off - as one is accustomed after a career with the NME - saying that it only contained two libels. I wonder if he knows that for something to be libellous, it must first be untrue.

Anyway, we're not here to perform any character assassinations. I'm sure he's a nice man. We probably wouldn't have got on, because A) our approaches to music are completely at odds and B) I'm extremely shallow.

We are however a decent organisation and we wish him the best of luck in the future.
