My Generation…when Patti Smith repetitively screamed those two words to her generation when she was jamming in the 70’s music was alive and meant a damn. Rock n Roll went hand and hand in living, breathing and being. It was the time of the Doors, Jefferson Airplane and a whole load of in your face musos. I'm seventeen, there aren’t many people my age I can talk music with. Music on the radio or tv is sadly shallow and depressing. Maybe we’re experiencing a more subdued political climate compared with a few decades ago. Things are happening but we’re subdued, its cool dude. I’ve got my home and my gorgeous mortgage, a spouse and my lexus or whatever…I’m feeling mellow. We still have an absurd war, Vietnam sounds a lot like Iraq to me, plus terrorism, climate change, poverty, ugly people, death. Its all starting to sound kind of universal. But its not, we’ve got crap to complain about, lets do it a whiney and big big way. Scream you passive people who read while they sit. Smile at people, don’t be evil and feed the spiritus mundi with yummy love.
