Exit an extrovert! A little more quietly than I would of liked, Alphonse Mouzon drop-kicked the bucket the other day. Mouzon was one of the best & most quintessential of the 70’s “Power Drummers” who vied for the Fusion throne with peers Michael Nerada Walden, Billy Cobham & Tony Williams. He played with Fusion mega-group of sorts Eleventh House along with electric guitarist Larry Coryell, a patchy as fuck but occasionally excellent & exhilarating collective that seem to be both simultaneously Continue reading Mou Mac:
Ethnicity Against the Error:
If there is one label to watch in Avant-Garde Jazz (& way’ way the fuck beyond), it’s the primo-peregrine Ethnicity Against the Error! Continue reading Ethnicity Against the Error:
it’s always interesting to see & compare how well-to-do boroughs/districts of London deal with things differently from the more deprived ones. rolling back through effing Kensington late-night from the shisha-shack with my mad Iranian soul mate Roya The Destroyer, we come across – *ghasp* AN ABANDONED CUSHEON!!! some official has got over-excited & posted a “Environmental Crime Scene” sticker on the cushion Continue reading of dice & death-traps (demagogue at door-nob)
man! – i can’t stand public transport. it’s slow, unpleasant, ineffective & overpriced & i cycle or walk everywhere (have never & will never ever own/drive a car no matter what). due to a panoply of circumstantial misfortune & not wanting to rescind on a commitment, i found myself needing to take the tube last friday for the first time in about four months or more. various events through Continue reading The Human Cost/Decimation of Civilization:
further observations on London’s aggressive tree reduction/de-greening & public poisoning/herbicide. Continue reading death & dog-shit:
Graveyards! Wonderful havens of respite & nature-cosm’s in the shit-sty that is London. Few people, & a proclivity towards quite as well, just to heap cherries on the icing-wads. Old architecture heaving with character from decades (perhaps even centuries?) of elemental embellishing & beautification, ancient tilting stones, lop-sided from expanding soils wreathed in briars & festooned in ivy all choca’ with wild flowers. Basically, places of peace, beauty & solace amidst the soul braying contagion of this insane car-centric metropolis mishap. Continue reading Rest In Poison!
So my friend is being forced to move house (flat)! It’s one of those now ubiquitous “unscrupulous” but probably legal ejections that’s tearing sane minds & lives apart all over London as the residual vestiges of interesting people are expelled from the crapital due to extortionate rents & government solicited land-lord tyranny as part of the Cancervatives undeclared social purging initiative. Continue reading PURGED FOR PROFIT!
Some books on the Syrian catastrophe! Fuck anyone that complains about Syrian refugees! Deal with it arsehole!!! Continue reading Catastrophe in Syria!
Bleg: Hi Brett! So you have a new book/theory coming out. My understanding, at least in gist, is that it argues we should scrap politicians altogether? or that the ever exponentiating calamity & crisis that seems to be engirdling the modern world derives from their constant misrule & malfeasance so their existence/empowerment needs to be seriously questioned/contested. Please elaborate/set-it straight about the book & your ideal/solution to this ghastly emergency that’s shunting us towards extinction or worse. Continue reading The End Of Politicians – Forthcoming Book by Brett Hennig
Monocentralism. Univision & the disabling, obstruction or omission of pluralities.. Converge & scramble on whomever first surpasses the corporate margin or acceptable fame saturation/product definition.
The Wu Tang Clan story is pretty familiar now, & despite the worn canvas it’s still a very important & genuine yarn of profound creativity. Also, it almost did not happen & was met with dismissal & dubiety by soulless corporate shit-sacks that should of known better & should have been in another profession & position entirely (washing dishes perhaps?).
