"I don’t believe another world is possible, because I know that all things superseded stick around and stink as unwelcome reminders of that we have to deal with, so another world is necessary but only built from the gutted hull of this one"

"Cyberpunk was the dream image of neo-liberalism par excellence, albeit one that encoded within it enough short-circuits to wake itself again and again."

"for what is steam punk if not a romanticized do-over, a setting of the clock back, a time of craftsmanship and real (fetishized) objects, remaking the world, not in the mode of the ceaseless slow sprawl of cheap oil but in the Victorian self-aware world making spirit?"

"What I propose in the place of steampunk, that weak handmaiden of Obama capitalism, is what I call salvagepunk: the post-apocalyptic vision of a kaputt world, strewn with both the dream residues and the real junk of the world that was, and shot through with the hard work of salvaging, repurposing, détourning, scrapping. "

Tonight I present a mix inspired by Evan Calder William's concept of Salvagepunk, expanded and expounded upon at length in his book "Combined And Uneven Apocalypse" and his essential blog Socialism and/or Barbarism.

Who the fuck says I never bring you anything highbrow? Tunes from Elklink, Diamond Catalog, Moon Pool And Dead Band, Jessica Rylan, The Lost Domain, Patrice And Friends, Chris Watsn, Frozen Border and more. I might drop a Current 93 cover I finished t'other day in somewhere too. Easy now.
