Has anyone else noticed how many people namecheck Nick Drake when asked (on radio or TV) what music they like? It's normally your posher celebs, who don't have anything to do with the music industry. Do the BBC prompt these people to mention him? The cynic in me sees it as the perfect choice to namecheck: he's relatively obscure, well-respected, and dead. No-ones going to criticise the choice, and it makes them look as if they're 'well-listened'. I bought a Nick Drake album, and I thought it was OK. However, he certainy wouldn't be the first artist I'd mention if asked what I like.
