I've begun to write some more "easily digestible" material for the kids who find my other postings too thorny and obtuse. One of the early returns is a little piece covering some of my favorite items in the history of "imaginary music" (by which I don't mean purely fictional music, but music that, for whatever reason, was cleverly passed off by creators or other interested parties as "actually existing.")
It's a topic that I touched upon a little bit in the Unofficial Release book, seeing as how even "handmade music" is beyond the reach of individuals who still wish to have a creative output, yet lack the means to do so.
It's also a topic that has expanded into very strange territory just this year, with the fiasco surrounding the clothing retailer H+M, their fashion campaign involving phony / invented heavy metal bands, and the subsequent attempt by non-affiliated pranksters to make those phony bands a reality.
As always, enjoy!
