“There is little conjunction of truth and social ‘reality’. Around us are pseudo-events, to which we
adjust with a false consciousness adapted to see these events as true and real, and even as beautiful. In the society of men the truth resides now less in what things are than in what they are not.
Our social realities are so ugly if seen in the light of exiled truth, and beauty is almost no longer
possible if it is not a lie.
What is to be done? We who are still half alive, living in the often fibrillating heartland of a senescent capitalism - can we do more than reflect the decay around and within us? Can we do more than sing our sad and bitter songs of disillusion and defeat?”

"Rock 'n' Roll isn't even music really. It's a mistreating of instruments to get feelings over."

"Rock 'n' roll is not record company product. It's real folk music, made by people who are driven to do something that has nothing to do with making money. It's because they gotta do it."
