Mick Farren, der den Booklet Text zur TRIKONT CD “Creative Outlaws UK” geschrieben hat ist tot. Ein Nachruf auf www.theguardian.com

Music journalist, singer and novelist who incarnated the spirit of rock’n'roll

Mick Farren did not invent the punk rock movement, but he certainly sounded the alarm with a June 1976 essay in the New Musical Express. Under the headline The Titanic Sails at Dawn, borrowed from the lyric of Bob Dylan’s Desolation Row, he examined a growing disaffection among the paper’s readership with the increasing complacency of a rock scene grown fat on the proceeds of the 60s boom.
