You’ll find this week’s On the Record column from The Ticket here. “One of the many lessons to be learned from this year’s US campaign is that musical and cultural endorsements actually didn’t mean a damn thing. It’s hard to say if they ever did, but this time they were up there alongside the experts and elites in failing to sway the voters. Just because you like the cut of someone’s music doesn’t mean you’re going to vote for the person they’re backing, especially when there are far more important issues to consider.”
