à discuter: simon reynolds' "retromania - pop culture's addiction to its own past"


another book we recommend because of its stimulating and in the same time offending richness of disparate ideas on music and the development of music culture from the 60ties until now:

Reynolds, Simon (2011). Retromania. Pop Culture’s Addiction to Its Own Past. New York: Faber and Faber, Inc.

below, we present a couple of quotes that we recognise as reynolds' conclusions.
not that we necessarily agree -

à discuter: mark fisher's "ghosts of my life" - writings on depression, hauntology, lost futures, capitalism & the surface noise made by vinyl


we recommend the following book because it makes us reflecting on what we like and what we do, in a clever and at once provoking manner:

fisher, mark (2014). ghosts of my life. writings on depression, hauntology and lost futures. winchester: zero books.

the term "hauntology" refers to the philosophical thinking of jacques derrida. it has been assigned to a particular realm of current (underground) music culture. we consider it as a useful concept in order to describe a great deal of the music that is featured on comfortnoise and dubexmachina. - subsequently, we present five quotes that we recognise as fisher's core arguments.
