Hey, would love to reply, but the comment didn't appear on Souciant. Holler!

Too funny

Thanks, flagmuffin. I appreciate it. Yes, I'm very involved with Souciant :>)

We're always looking for more stories in this area. I grew up reading British newspapers, and still follow them, as an adult. The news media in the UK is in terrible crisis, despite having better dailies than the US.

My favorite use of synths is when they're understated, or don't sound like synths. Mouse on Mars' late 1990s releases, for Thrill Jockey, are a great example. They introduced me to Nord synths, which remain a favorite. I like Dave Smith Instruments synths, too. The Evolver is a gem.

That's a good point, even though Femen turned out to be a bit of a con job, gender-wise. (And I say that very much enjoying Femen's interventions.)

Those are all good criticisms. I often find that with flyers like these, they are heavier on polemics than analytical precision.

I used to edit a great mag, by the name of Punk Planet. Unlike a lot of music mags of its ilk, politics came first, and always informed our approach to the noise we covered. PP folded in 2007. I'd have a hard time imagining starting it today, as its entire raison d'ĂȘtre was predicated on music being a gateway to the left. That's why Keith's article rang especially true, for me.

Thanks for the comment. Yes, I think that's entirely fair.

Thanks for your comment, Russ. yeah - that's the paradox of this portrait. It'd be hard to imagine such a protest in the US. That's Italy.

My pleasure. They were a fixture in the Bay Area during the Nirvana-Green Day period. Same generation of bands.

Heh. Well, Berlin is a leftwing paradise, in a lot of ways. For everybody. But it's still part of the former East, which, has not gone away, either politically, or culturally. It's a fascinating mix.
