Cages by Dave Mckean
Cages by Dave Mckean
There's a painter who just moved into this house rent by an elderly lady, a Miss "What?", and who is looking for the perfect motive and/or inspiration for his new painting.
Next to him lives a writer named Jonathan Rush (a remainder of Rushdie?), who once wrote a controversial 500 pages novel called "Cages" (see?), a "Hammer-of-God" like epic, in which the autor came across several existencial questions about the human condition (later we learn that it was only HIS condition he was trying to express), and which forced him and his wife to hide from the outside world.

They are young, they are raw, they are innocent, they are from sunny California, but "B.R.M.C"'s self titled first album is less fun/sun/water, it's more Jesus & Mary Chain noise, Phil Spector fuzzy Wall-of-Sound, black leather jackets-drug abuse and dirty fingernails In terms of redefining pure R.O.C.K, this album grabs you almost the same way the "Strokes" album did a few months ago. It means also that the "Motorcycle Club" sure have learned his lesson well by listening to some old VU and/or Rolling Stones records, but it's the ruthless drive of each song and their passionate performances that save them from any such thing as plagiatism. Even if you don't ride a motorcycle (I don't… Read more
