Aftershocks: The End of Style Culture
These popcult essays mix style-magazine think pieces, celebrity interviews, street-level cyber-theory and slipstream media memoir to offer a readymade archive of tomorrow's strip-mall culture. Its postmodern approach to reportage allows subjects like new media art, Terence McKenna at Megatripolis, Diana-gate, slasher movies, virtual capitalism, New Puritan transsexuals, Afrofuturism, and the cult of the serial killer to bleed into each other. Aftershocks features definitive interviews with Brian Eno, Michael Moorcock, the Orb's Alex Paterson, Reservoir Dogs -era Harvey Keitel, James Kelman, Robert Anton Wilson, Hakim Bey, Stelarc, and Naked Lunch -era David Cronenberg. Also includes previously unpublished material.
