Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Thirst for the Obscure

I came across the following quote last week in a review on the Pitchfork website:
>Rock critic Michael Goldberg recently speculated that what makes music fanatics thirst for the obscure is the desire to discover music that is “uncontaminated by the commerce machine.” This, he says, is the reason we cling to the abstract and unmarketable, the outlandish and abrasive.
That sounds like me.
