Seefeel: Quique

Jon Savage, MOJO, January 1994

MUSIC ALWAYS SEEKS TO BREAK THE BOUNDS of language: indeed, the language of words is often inadequate to describe what music does as it enters the body. The glory of post-ware Afro/American music is in the subordination of the lyric to the overall sound: from Bo Diddley on, the voice has often been another instrument, another texture in a vortex of noise.

Total word count of piece: 732
