“to all the writers locked in their rooms
punching the air at an invisible balloon
hammering away
on a slick device
away from husbands
away from wives
a thought bubble
pops like a blip on this blight

to all the keepers
of their own only fate
now we must stay inside and wait
no smile or subtle vibe
with the local barista
no fearful exchange
with that cop on vista
the bank teller tells no one
for heavens cripes!

i’ve slept through the morning
i’ve slept through the night
i pace the study
i plank when i can
i ought to become a better man
when all this fizzles
we’ll be covered in fluff
a consciousness metamorphosis”

—Jenny Lewis

Rudolf Dethu

Music journalist, writer, radio DJ, socio-political activist, creative industry leader, and a qualified librarian, Rudolf Dethu is heavily under the influence of the punk rock philosophy. Often tagged as this country’s version of Malcolm McLaren—or as Rolling Stone Indonesia put it ‘the grand master of music propaganda’—a name based on his successes when managing Bali’s two favourite bands, Superman Is Dead and Navicula, both who have become two of the nation’s biggest rock bands.
