Born To Anti Rock, Rock, Rock

Further note on questioning one's convictions...

"Anti-rockist", anti hyperbolic comics. These are subject to the usual, perhaps shallow paradox that they are phrases which mean something only to those who not-so-secretly want to _really_ rock.

Post meaningless spectacle, post shoegazing, dust off that glittery jumpsuit and those Kirby ink dots, embrace the fact of performance, of the humility of the entertainer, the storyteller, cartoonist.

Johnny Marr:
"There's an interesting mythology about the pop music I grew up with in the 70s. Everyone wants to demystify themselves now and say "I'm just a regular guy". Well, I don't mind of not being thought regular... Pop music should be for people who don't buy into that ideology!!!!"
