Well this, and plus it draws attention to the fact that there was no good music out of Britain except dance.
nah, you missed the bit where i posted some rare groove didn't you.great 'i be realer' patronising claptrap third!
cos that's what yr saying really..
conformist old 'people showing their emotions are weak', dressed up as a load of futurist pabulum, fuck off!
all that aesthetics: faster louder noisier, you're being chased to the increasingly masculinist, affectless margins thinking you've made the big move
in the end, gigantism, monumentalism, fascist aesthetics..
beware of 'visions' that are just capitalist extrapolations, the prolix imagination of the system dreaming its own abstracted continuities, minus pesky real suffering yumans
no heartache with tricky & martina anyway, no feeling as blessedly clearcut as that, it's from inside the suffocated relat, thinking it thru blindly mole-like, feeling only as tangled, sticky headaches
i don't touch zizek, he didn't invent concerns about intersubjectivity obvs
yeah soz about all that. Im not against people showing their emotions. What im saying is far more than that. im saying the real authentic star character is the community of capital, it's fake. the rehearsed vocalisations of soul, the cartoon antics of hardcore-jungle, the disciplined yet screaming atonality of free jazz, the badboy war vibes in 90s dancehall, if viewed using the inverted prism are more real than the notion of real that is sold back to us. music is absolutely theater, because only actors are able to tap into the psychological states necessary to reflect the absurd.i'm fullstyle libcommie bro. longstanding. si-schooled, aufheben into tc, communisation current, and on...
can't stand corby and and any of his bros. and not in academia and not been anywhere near for decades now.
loada strawmanning but never mind..
don't agree should be brum only but whatevs.
but soz did miss rare groove, and i love the boogie too! especially the weird dubbed out shit:
