Ian F. Svenonius
Svenonius’s band The Make-Up on the Save Yourself Tour is still etched in my mind as one of the best Rock ‘n’ Roll shows I’ve ever been to. Back then I was interested in being in a band as a pure aesthetic experience– the music was secondary to the clothes, the movement on stage, the iconography surrounding being in a group. I’m glad that I was picking up on what Svenonius was trying to do back then.
This book is a testament to Svenonius’s practice, and like all good Rock ‘n’ Roll it takes heavy ideas and tosses them off with casual ease. Makes me want to start a group again.
