A French-Pop-Special-Guest-Podcast by our friends at Stop Making Sense – Yann Chateigné, Tiphanie Blanc & Vincent Normand Introduction penned by Mr. Dan Fox & performed by Mr. Nathaniel Mellors It was late. Wind howled through the dark outside the windows of the Novotel Krakow Centrum.

As the Junior Aspirin Records label HQ moves its operations to a remote and heavily-fortified anarcho-syndicalist commune in the Pacific Northwest in anticipation of the total collapse of civic society after the 8 November election, label co-founder, writer and editor Dan Fox has made a rare trip into the city, finding time in his busy urban guerilla warfare training schedule to pop into SoHo, do a little shopping, and rig the US presidential election for this post-pre-post-truth liberal media elite conspiracy-thon.

It’s an essential ingredient in pop music and high art. Why do we choose accusations of elitism over open-mindedness? What do our anxieties about “pretending” say about us? Co-editor of frieze, Europe’s foremost magazine of contemporary art and culture, Dan Fox has authored over two hundred essays, interviews, and reviews and contributed to numerous catalogues and publications produced by major international art galleries and institutions.
