And now a musical interlude

Revolution Number Nine

That was one of the more intriguing bits from the Beatles catalogue, acting as a prelude to the musical treats that would await us in the following decades. That tune seemed like a touchstone for early industrial music (Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle stand out), ambient (Eno, but also The Orb, Richard Kirk under either his own name or his many pseudonyms), and those crazy culture jammers and mash-up artists such as Negativeland and Evolution Control Committee. In other words, this is precisely the sort of stuff I groove on when not in the mood for some jazz. Welcome to just one small corner of my world.
