some other good quotes from the ccru kodwo booklet...

This one in reference to Greg Tate - Arthur Jafa also tells this one, he's influenced by Tate as well.

"...one large thing Greg used to say which worked really well, was that the Middle Passage in America by definition forced culture to become immediately mental. All of the other things by definition were left behind, ruined, architecture, everything else, so culture immediately became mental, immediately became demateriaized. So oral culture is by definition dematerialized, it's all the things you carry in your head, and that's it. And then it has to be rematerialized, first through hitting the hands, or through the mouth or whatever, it has to be passed on again, and reinvented all over again."

This one's good, about George Clinton...

"Clinton came up with mixadelics, the theory of mixology as a psychedelia, the theory of the mixing desk as a psychedelia, in 79, there it is, mixadelics. That's a concept, he thought of a psychedelia of the mixing desk. So you don't need Heidegger, because Clinton's already theoretical."

McLuhan:

"...McLuhan in his famous lines about the human being the sex organs for the machine world, those lines are crucial. The Kraftwerk chapter is all about Kraftwerk as the sex organs for the synthesiser."
