Music?


Music has a lot to do in terms of human expression. Ever since the secularisation of music, it has evolved into a giant industry which nearly every single person in the world can relate to. Of course, since money has become very important in this decadent society that Spork strives to save, the role of popular music has become increasingly different, morphing quite out of recognition.

While there are musicians who play in order to exand their possibilites of sound, we also have a lot of corporate, commercial music bent on making money, while at the same time setting the trends of the youth. On the other hand, we have artists who make music to achieve the communication of a message, such as Bob Dylan, Rage Against the Machine, etc.

Religion has, of course, made an entry into modern commercial music, with Satanic and/or Christian Rock Bands and the like.

So what's Spork's official music? Which band spreads our word of sensibility and reform?

In terms of raising awareness in politics among the youth, I suppose we'd like the now defunct Rage Against the Machine. There are undoubtedly hundreds of other protest artists, however... Bob Dylan, The Sex Pistols... The list is nearly endless.

What about the other aspects of Spork, in terms of the desire for peace and beauty? Radiohead? Or the curious, strange way the Prophets are guided by a cosmic Beefpie Voice? Primus?

What do you think?

Gaargh! Please! Leave one aspect of my world alone. A bottle of decent Merlot and a few hundred watts of stereo should not be confused with a gentle political discussion while holding a broken bottle (of Merlot) to the neck of your debating partner!

I'm with anything from Puccini to Tatu, from Dwight Yoakam to Shirley Bassey - and everything in-between.

I'm serious and responsible enough most of the time, my music is reserved for pure Bacchanalian "when Harry met Sally (or Harry!) I'll have whatever she's having" escapism.

Please, if marching be the musical sound of politics - just bang a drum and leave the air-guitar to me!

All political religions HAVE had their own music - if you're curious as to find out what Hitler listened to while kicking back, it was Anton Bruchner.

I know it's callous to label innocently-produced music as belonging to a political religion, but just for kicks - what would sound like Spork?

I'd say Zero 7 was the sound of Spork

Or perhaps: "Come and listen to your own thing". This philosophy is catered to the whole of humanity, after all.
