Rock Sex

Quote Tym Stevens on his blog about “ROCK SEX”:

ROCK Sex is about how everyone’s input in music expands it.
ROCK Sex is about how the liquid nature of culture involves everyone. Today’s example is how the relay baton of a musical idea moves easily between supposedly different music movements.
Inspiration is cyclical and inclusive. Do as thou wilt, everything is permitted…

Example: KRAFTWERK > TROUBLE FUNK > AFRIKA BAMBAATA > NEW ORDER

I love the YouTube video examples. Even if sometimes I don’t hear what I think he is hearing and the connection between two different tracks seems ‘flimsy’ (I guess that’s what makes it a ‘quickie’! ha) this is still a fun and interesting blog . What the heck would we do without YouTube!
