"This book focuses on the all-American experience and its neurotic pop-culture references. The near cinematic character of Ken’s black-and-white visuals which are somewhat reminiscent of bold movie posters from the golden era of global cinema paint the grey nuances of contemporary life. History, symbols, conceptions of freedom and democracy emerge in their comic, cynical and ridiculous manifestations. The remarkable visual and textual imagery points to the overall saturation with media and cries out for a world of new symbols and content. The book points to the iconicity and the plasticity of today’s media wherein the symbols, icons, brands, barcodes, religious imagery, Eros and Thanatos all merrily dance away their century-old media dance marathon.
The two musical giants also make this visuotextual journey musical. Jeffrey Nothing, the mastermind behind 3 major genre-defining bands in metal, produces bleak, heart-felt lyrics that stand beautifully accompanied by Ken’s visuals, and they easily lend themselves to a possible musical accompaniment allowing us to almost hum them into tunes.. Accessible, jarring and truthful words caffeinate the mind of the reader taking them on a unique musical journey and leaving them eagerly waiting for another possible volume."
Includes unlimited streaming of Asceticism (The Rock LP) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
