Wired - "Malcolm MacLaren on 8 bit Punks"

Wired discovers "chip music", which this blog author has known about since about 1991 on the Amiga. It's quite humourous in a way - a style of music that is already a decade old now being praised as "something new". The words "barrel" and "bottom" come to mind. But having said that, the article is an interesting read and I for one wouldn't mind seeing a Protracker tune in the top 20.

And if you really want to hear chip music, just visit Modarchive.com for hundreds of these old tunes. They'll play in most modern media players (Winamp is ok, XMMS is fine with them too).
