  • Staff Review:
    This pocket-sized collection of essays by former Nation of Ulysses and Make-Up frontman, Ian Svenonius, consists of bizarre musings on the state of rock and roll that strike a pseudo-intellectual tone -- but in a good way. Svenonius will start each chapter with a provocative and seemingly ludicrous premise -- Alan Greenspan spawned the folktronica movement; Seinfeld¬ù spearheaded a government program to corporatize, suburbanize, and sanitize the urban landscape -- that, for better or for worse, becomes convincing over the course of a few angry, off-kilter, and sometimes hilarious pages. The end result makes for a satisfying and surprisingly cohesive read. Mao had his little red book; now this restless, relentless, and often even inspirational rock and roll personality has his a little pink one of his own.
