Fragments #6

(New Power Generation – Guess Who’s Knockin’)

“The objective is always to pull out the tablecloth without in any way changing the arrangement of the table

Short but so sweet. Scathing social critique from a master of suspicion.

The cut is courtesy of Prince project The New Power Generation. Featuring lead vocals from original member Tony M. Just like to add that by laying this one down I’m risking the wrath of a certain musician whose name I shall refrain from mentioning because rumour has it that he had it removed from this, the original 1993, set due to an unlicensed sample…so do me a favour and keep it on the ‘DL’.

The connection? .. The set was released in the same year that Baudrillard penned the fragment above.
