The Null Device
While you're probably familiar with Tanya's hate-filled fulminations
, the rest of Freaky Trigger
has some interesting pop music-related content
as well, including this eye-opening screed against indie snobbery
and genre fundamentalism:
I hate indie's pretense at sole possession of depth. I hate the indie
mentality, the indie industry... You think
you're any better than the metalhead dismissing all this 'wuss' music?
You think you're any better than the clown who only listens to hip-hop
because it's an authentic voice of the streets, especially one who always
talks about the lyrics and never about the beats? Any better than the jazz
blowhards who make Wynton Marsalis seem open minded, the blues purists who
won't stop? THERE IS MORE TO OFFER. THERE. ARE. NO. BOUNDS. REVELATION IS
INDIVIDUAL AND NOT COLLECTIVE.
