The JD Salinger of pop

Guardian Unlimited | Arts Friday Review | The JD Salinger of pop: "Macefield claims he found Mavers to be 'a warm, sensitive man, who simply wants to follow his muse without compromise'. The singer also seems charmingly aware of his own mythology, insisting that There She Goes is 'the only record in the last 10 years' and that he will 'never do anything again' unless a tuning problem with a favourite guitar can be fixed."

New book on seminal band The La's out on Monday. When they played Dundee they opened and closed with There She Goes, and had a backdrop with the slogan "skin up la" on it.
