Where I come from being called a "hipster" is tantamount to being called a wanker; I've been called a wanker plenty of times [I know, shocking isn't it?] but never a hipster. Mostly because I'm the wrong side of 30; wear glasses with prescription lenses instead of just plain glass; have never owned a pair of espadrilles; and realised vinyl records were a pile of shite back in 1988.
If you're still coming over to London for the London Drum Show, Larry, I wouldn't take it as a compliment if anyone calls you a hipster.
