Re: wait a minute

Imagine I declared: "Consistency both is and isn't the hobgoblin of little minds" and then you came along, cited me saying somewhere that it is the hobgoblin of little minds, then reminded me that I'd said it both was and wasn't the hobgoblin of little minds, and accused me of being inconsistent.

Re: wait a minute

so which one is it: rocking the 70s look today is counterculture cool, or kind of sad/pathetic? if your answer is "both," you're the hobgoblin with more explaining to do...

Re: wait a minute

Retro Necro is great and tragic at the same time. It's great because revival clearly only revives great things, things worth reviving. So there are more great things in the world. It's tragic because the new things we might be doing now get, as a consequence of the revival of great old things, overshadowed and overlooked. This is the tragedy of rock music in our time, and I've written about it extensively.

And is reviving Brel at the Barbican retro necro? Absolutely.
