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.
