FACT Magazine did it again with the K-Punk piece Infinity is Now: in defence of the hardcore continuum defending Simon Reynold's Hardcore Continuum. And a response by Dan Hancox Generational Resentment.
What do I think? While I am of the Hardcore Continuum generation... I do think these pieces are true theories that cannot be proven. It might be cool to say that the baton is not being passed but there is a slip by the elders and the youngers are right in the midst of scooping the baton up. I do think the Hardcore Continuum is relevant but must be treated as a lose quilt that can be added to and reshaped.
