This weeks playlist gets a letter from the Queen as we boldly reach a century of Monday Miscellanies. And so it seems fitting that the slow-building but grand statement that is Queen by Perfume Genius kicks us off and we dive headlong into the miscellanies, ended by the King of the avant-garde himself, Brian Eno and his friend Karl Hyde from their great new record.

I’ve posted a century of playlists on SoundCloud, one every Monday, for almost two years.  Not stepping yet, either….

SPEAKEASY WITH PAUL F. TOMPKINS: JOHN HODGMAN

I love doing this series, but I love it extra much moreso when the guest is a friend of mine. 

But, really, what could be more arty than wanting to destroy art by smashing the boundaries that keep it sealed off from everyday life?
A quote from from the excellent Rip It Up And Start Again - a history of post-punk from 1978-1984 by Simon Reynolds that I couldn’t put  down while on holiday recently…
