Can I repeat myself? Martin Jones’ 1988 interview footage with Goldie on the topic of graffiti was taken from YouTube a while ago, but I never realised that it was back up. I’ve posted it before, but with a few dissenting voices on his recent MBE acceptance, it seems relevant to remind people that Goldie repped this nation hard back in the day, getting up in NYC and returning to recount some tales of the tunnels with Jones while wearing the ultimate turtleneck, gold Mercedes pendant and lavish jacket combination. Whatever your stance on the monarchy, you need to realise that he should have been knighted on the spot for contributions to the culture at that moment — the fact he put in extra work in subsequent decades makes it doubly deserved. Jones’ Zulu Dawn book is fantastic too, even if you just opt for the PDF edition.
