Strange, flicking through the style mags in WHSmith, to note that, in spite of their self-image as trackers of the vanguard of fashion, most of the edgier mags – Love, iD, AnOther, Tank & whatever – feature musical personalities at least a year after having dropped out of general favour. So, Au Revoir Simone are mentioned on the front of the new AnOther, who Plan B featured back when their first & best singles came out, nearly five years ago; iD features, as their hot new thing, A$AP, when he hasn’t done anything decent since ‘Peso’, which came out nearly two years ago (is it that they’ve only just figured out he wears Raf Simons?)
