This review is from: The Psychic Soviet (Paperback)
This is one of the best books on music I've ever read. It's funny, ingenious, deadpan, inventive... Rock = the capitalist establishment's new ploy to keep the populace duped as religion fades away... DJs are musical stockbrokers... Dylan going electric was the triumph of capitalist ideology over socialism... The Beatles vs The Stones? Industrial Sovietology vs agrarian Maoism... Seinfeld as Guilani-endorsed propaganda enabling the bourgoisie to recover the city from the hands of the proletariat...
Svenonius used to be in the DC hardcore/artcore band Nation of Ulysses. Now he's like some demented postpunk Chomsky rock conspiracist. Buy this book and disseminate it amongst your collective.
