 Welcome to the Music business you’re fucked!

Synchromatic antidotes of his journey reflect what I have been wondering about for some time because they are very much based on synchronicity, music and culture. Yet, this does not surprise me. My antenna is up and I am digging it!!

One from my generation that still projects the rebellious spark and is still affirming it.

It is an adventure to go downtown to help at the Punk Museum at KGB Studios. This evening was on Valentine’s Day, and I was thrilled to listen to Martin Atkins, English drummer and Professor, speak about his life. Considered for his post-punk drumming experience with Public Image he has a lot more experiences to inform us on.

His concepts and theories about punk rock are quite amusing and intellectually satisfying. His gentle ways mixed with the word “Fuck” are nice touches amongst his many stories.

If you happen to take his picture, he has his stanch look down hard, which is bent over with an upturned glare as you can see.

This is the look of confrontation and knowing which reveals a lot about his character and reflects what the hell he is all about. I did not feel any pretentious qualities in his presence. He was easy, accessible, and most likely a very excellent teacher. It inspires me to meet up with such a man as he, one from my generation that still projects the rebellious spark and is still affirming it. People talk about 2012 being the end of the world; instead, I feel it is a time where many will go back to more Intimate relationships and basic communications. Tonight, is an example of this and I was glad to be part of it.
