The Wire | Shadowbahn



Steve Erickson, author of Shadowbahn

A hilarious quote from Steve Erickson's recently published novel, Shadowbahn:

Mustering moral authority, he choked, "I need you to listen to me so as to be mindful when forces of darkness attempt to lead you astray. Try to understand that someone who thinks Queen and the Grateful Dead are good"—this caused him a particular pang, since their mother was known to have a fondness for the former band—"is not necessarily a bad person. Sometimes," he allowed, "good people can believe bad things. But then there are purists, elitists if you will, cultural clergy," indignation rising, "who will tell you that mono is better than stereo for instance. There are those in the audiophiliac oligarchy who will tell you that vinyl is better than MP3s. Well, we're not reactionaries in this family, goddamn it—"
"Okay," his wife interjected.
"—we're democrats, egalitarians. We're futurists, we don't go back. Pet Sounds is not better in fucking mono."
