John Maus-flavoured Introduction to Robocop, Explanatory Music Video, Maus Book Reprint

So here's something a bit different. Last week I did a couple lectures in Brussels and Amsterdam in which I talked about John Maus and similar underground pop figures and then we played the film Robocop. Apparently this film is a favourite of Maus's. I wrote a tongue-in-cheek-but-deadly-serious introduction to the movie highlighting the parallels between Maus and Robocop, click here to read it at

In a further attempt to highlight the resonance between Maus and Robocop, I whipped up a little music video for Maus's song 'We Can Break Through', using footage from the movie. Find it on the Subbacultcha page, or uh right here:

Also: Precinct have reprinted my essay / pamphlet on Maus, entitled 'Heaven is Real': John Maus and the Truth of Pop, AND released a new ebook version compatible with Kindle. Browse it and get it by clicking here.

Keep pushing on!
