Tomorrow Never Knows - new book

ISBN: 9780226075532

ID: 15907015

´´There was something rigorous and instructive in getting stoned and listening to music as if it really ´´mattered,´´´´ writes Nick Bromell in the first book to take seriously the ´´drugs and rock ´n´ roll´´ side of the 1960s-a side too often eclipsed by oversimplifications of that decade´s hedonism or political idealism. To truly understand those years, Bromell argues, we must go back to the primal scene in which listening to rock-the Beatles, Dylan, Doors, Hendrix-was fused with the experience of being high. What did young people hear? What did they feel and think and learn? ´´Tomorrow Never Knows´´ focuses not on the stars who produced the music or on the leaders of the counterculture, but on those who sat in their dorm rooms and group houses, smoked dope, and played albums. Weaving together memoir and musicology, history and politics, Bromell shows how millions of listeners mixed rock and psychedelics in a quest to make sense of themselves and their times. This combination was not mere escapism, he argues, but a vital public philosophy, one that we must do justice to in order to comprehend not just the past but the present. For the most enduring legacy of the ´60s-and the reason we both celebrate and revile them today-may be that they inaugurated a profound instability, a sense that foundations are fictions and culture itself ´´just a lie.´´ Indeed, psychedelics helped confirm the way adolescents ´´already´´ saw the world, Bromell argues, and that is why they were intrigued by the strange sounds of Revolver long before most of them had even heard of pot or acid. Bromell also suggests that ´60s rock drew heavily on the blues not just because white kids admired African American styles ofresistance, but because the blues gave musical expression to the double consciousness most of them felt as both insiders and outsiders in their own culture. Deftly teasing out the layered meanings of such songs as ´´All Along the Watchtower,´´ ´´Ballad of a Thin Man,´´ and ´´Str ´´There was something rigorous and instructive in getting stoned and listening to music as if it really ´´mattered,´´´´ writes Nick Bromell in the first book to take seriously the ´´drugs and rock ´n´ roll´´ side of the 1960s-a side too often eclipsed by oversimplifications of that decade´s hedonism or political idealism.
