Everyone remembers Jack “Dr. Death” Kevorkian’s controversial stance on euthanasia and subsequent murder conviction, but you never hear about his TV show and jazz flute chops.
That all changes with this episode of Click Vortex, in which Sam and Jason dig in on Kevorkian, Glenn O’Brien and Chris Stein (Blondie)’s pioneering public access show TV Party, Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren’s globetrotting 1983 fusion of African folk, hip-hop, punk and electro Duck Rock, and untangle the thread connecting magical author Alan Moore, Damon Albarn of Blur and the Gorillaz, and antiquarian British occultist John Dee. Do the Red Hot Chili Peppers make an appearance? Does your revolution allow for dancing? Did the world secretly end in 2017? Answers to these questions and more can be yours by pressing play on this episode of Click Vortex.
