Jon Bounds on Digbeth, Birmingham's vibrant heart – The Guardian

The Guardian asked me to write about Brum, so as it needs all the support it can I did a bit on Digbeth. They subbed out a clever line about the Rainbow that I'll now save for something else — but did keep the words "pimply bosom". [link]

    Bloody marvellous article and the best use of “pimply bosom” I've ever seen (the only one too).

    Great article and always a pleasure to read something in the national media that tells people that Birmingham isn't, actually, shit. And I like the 'Punk didn't die – it just stopped hanging round in bus shelters' line….
