THE DIVINE CUP
by The Westerwaves: Liner notes by Slavoj Žižek
"With The Divine Cup, The Westerwaves have created one of the most important pieces of art
of the 21st century. The album is a conceptual work that acts at the same time as an instrument of
social critique and as a transcendental element
of catharsis, in particular if you tend to like goats more than you should."
10 amazing tunes about the taliban, terror boyz,
Khomeini, Philip VII, Pierre Curie, the legendary
bootleg recording of
"Nobody cares about my Baby" and much more!
