[MUSIC] Five music links: Mingering Mike, post-punk Madonna, Alex Chilton, Iskwe, Myspace

  • Dangerous Minds notes “Mingering Mike”, a fictional soul music star created by an outsider artist.
  • Noisey takes a look at the roots of Madonna in the post-punk music scene of New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
  • Dangerous Minds looks at the Alex Chilton anti-AIDS song of 1986, “No Sex.”
  • NOW Toronto interviewed iskwe in February about her music commemorating dead Indigenous people in Canada.
  • Damon Kurkowski writes at Pitchfork about the implications of the accidental deletion by Myspace of a decade and a half worth of music there. How can libraries and archives be preserved against the vagaries of technology?
