"What I really want people to realise is just what a great writer my mum was. Not just a symbol of something, or another part of the punk story, but an amazing talent.

With grime’s recent and unexpected acceptance into the mainstream, it’s no surprise that stylistic accoutrements and cash-ins followed. In 2017, you can buy T-shirts in H&M with “GRIME” emblazoned on them, catch Ghetts popping up on your Instagram feed in sponsored posts advertising Clarks shoes, or head to Airbnb for a £190, three-day “grime experience” in London with a dedicated tour guide....

In a musical world made up of woozy hip-hop, postmodern pop and lonely laptop boffins, they’re an indie rock group obsessed with the soul music of the late 1960s and early 70s. It is not, it has to be said, the most fashionable sound around right now.
