The MC5 is a Whole Thing

John Sinclair, Countdown, 1970

THERE IS NO way to get at the music without taking the whole context of the music too – there is no separation. We say the MC5 is the solution to the problem of separation, because they are so together. The MC5 is totally committed to the revolution, as the revolution is totally committed to driving people out of their separate shells and into each other's arms.
