"A Woman's Work is Trevor Dunn"

Trevor Dunn has a new site:

Here he explains the meaning behind my favorite composition of his, Mr. Bungle’s “Retrovertigo”:

"While certain 'retro' fashions and lifestyles are considered hip, the on-going tradition of human suffering continues. As the world progresses technologically, certain people value and emulate 'the good ol' days', while others are born into poverty never having progressed past the dark ages. The title 'retrovertigo' is a term I came up with to describe my nausea regarding this phenomena. At the time I was living in SF where swing dancing was making a come-back, silicon valley was exploding, vintage clothes were expensive, and the notion that anything could be bought or sold--a soul, a tragedy, the end of the world---seemed viable."
