Green Music

Some text appears to be missing from the first part of this post at Dalrymple’s Small Tumours in the Body Politic blog at Salisbury Review, but he appears to be discussing an article in Le Monde that describes the appearance of pop band Django Django at a Parisian music festival called We Love Green. The band members apparently prides themselves on being pro-multiculturalism, pro-environmentalism and anti-consumerism, which Dalrymple says is a little odd:

Django Django were students together at Edinburgh Art College, but have now moved to London, a city, one of them explained to the journalist, that is ‘noisy, dirty, consumerist,’ – but also ‘richly multicultural.’ It didn’t occur to him, apparently, that the pop music of which he is a purveyor is one of the consumerist causes of noise.
