I read some interview Godspeed You Black Emperor gave that they wanted their music to be revolutionary but they didn't have lyrics

Here's an idea

Make some lyrics you sods

dunno it was like recounting their struggles to make it sound revolutionary and I was like the only difference between revolutionary and non-revolutionary music are the lyrics cause someone will just copy your style or more than likely you gimped it from someone else

@Elizafox I'm also not especially on board w/ this bc it reads like "because societal context for art is mutable, there's no point in relying on it ever"

@Elizafox err that also should have said "makes its meaning mutable" or something so I was being dumb anyways

@Elizafox Not sure I really like the logical conclusion of this

@Elizafox I don't like anything GY!BE related except Exhaust, but...

I just don't think you can map some kind of moral duty to almost purely creative decisions in that straightforward a way
