Through 1994-96, Mojo magazine commissioned Chris Ingham to write a light-hearted, bi-monthly musicology column identifying common patterns, techniques and tendencies in popular music. It was called Dr Rock Dissects The Hits and ran to around a dozen columns.
The first column discussed the oft-used mechanism of the major chord with descending bassline and coined the term DESH (Diatonic Elaboration of Static Harmony), an adaptation/pastiche of jazz theorist Jerry Coker's CESH (Contrapuntal Elaboration Of Static Harmony - melodic movement implying shifting harmony over unmoving chords, e.g., the opening phrase of the bridge of Charlie Parker's 'Confirmation').
The column led to a radio appearance on BBC Radio 1's rock magazine show Soundbite (clip below). The segment also featured on Radio 4's Pick Of The Week.
