Blogger to watch (or read): Dave Wonfor

Gotta love Google Alerts.

Thanks to this wonderful tool, I came across music writing by Diamond Dave Wonfor out of the UK.  His seems to be a recently started blog, but there’s some good stuff here already, like his series on Funkadelic and Black Rock.  You can read parts one, two and three.  These pieces are strong because he seems to have a strong grasp of the social history of the music he’s writing about.  Of course, context is important, and he provides plenty of it.

Keep the posts comin’, Dave!
