For the second episode, I get into the idea concerning the death of the rock band and the vanishing act surrounding the rock star. Two of my favorite records from 2015 are highlighted; The Pop Group’s “Citizen Zombie”, and Protomartyr’s “The Agent Intellect”, both of which exemplified a rare attention to aspects lacking from current rock music. I also briefly mention rappers as the new millennial rock stars, indie bands embracing the pop zeitgeist, and ponder where, oh where, did all the fucking guitars go?
