FOR:  the best of independent music.  AGAINST: the abuses of corporate music Big  Three (WUS or Warners/Universal/Sony).


*POST-ISM, WOW, world open wide, or Postmod Music- its 3 things:

Revolution against what rock/rap/country/pop have become,

Back to early rock and roll’s simple honesty, directness, and passion with an emphasis on melody and great SONGS, and

Music that includes all types of music from every place in the world. (and It’s part of the overall art and media revolution).

  • Poems, Sayings, Comments on Postmod music


FIRST WORLD TOP 40 LIST! BEST MUSIC LIST in the WORLD!!! (And hardest to get on!) Never before – or probably never again in history, will anyone hear such great new music all at once.The internet is the world’s first worldwide JUKEBOX. And this is the first music in that jukebox.  The first OUTSIDE THE BOX set. Week after week Musea, my 22 year old Dallas art and media zine scours the net for the very best in music from every corner of the world for the world’s first list of new great music.

First World Top 40


Plus this short video from a series on the art and media revolution.

5 Doors to the Art Revolution – Music





One standard guitar, one voice, one revolution:

My Music:  Trying to lead the new music with some rebellion and vitality that includes these CONTENDERS FOR WORLD’S FIRSTS in music:

1. First music to oppose what 60 year old rock/rap/country/pop have become, and start a new back to basic music. First new music of this century.
2. Postmod Music is part of the larger art and media revolution started by the Zine Musea 20 years ago.

3. First Box Office Concerts. Guitar and voice concerts from the Inwood Movie Theater in Dallas played IN THE BOX OFFICE. – Glass Booth.

4. First Internet, BEST NEW MUSIC – WORLD WIDE LIST Musea’s Worldwide Favorite Music LIST (200+ now) “100 Plus Favorite Music from Youtube and Myspace”
5. First live request and dedication IN CONCERT.
6. New acoustic guitar style (bass, rhythm and lead all at once) – The, This Silvertone is as good as a band” style.

7. Bringing the ROLL back ! (the roll that rock and roll and popular music has lost).  Too much of the music today is like gum without the flavor. Something is missing. It’s the oil, the “roll” in rock and roll. That’s the oil in the machine!
8. First artist’s first CD, a 9 CD SET of 150 songs HUNKASAURUS AND HIS PET DOG GUITAR, Outside the Box Set”. Fo/mo/info  – See CDBaby for all 9 CD’s
This outside the box, set of 150 songs by Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar, is a collection of all types of music, that show: the many variations of voice and standard guitar music, a type of combo guitar style, and 17 years of box office concerts.

Now listen to the simple melodic music covering every genre except generic bands,
2. Lost Tapes (from the 80’s and 90-‘s
3. The Big List. (200 of the best new music on the internet)


Let’s go beyond the music hype and get the music facts. Compare how many musicians had 3-6 big hits from the period of 1955-1975, with the corporate music era of 1995-2014.


THE BIG THREE:  Instead of thousands of small record companies from every town in the country, competing on quality, we have 3 who own 80% of the music business.
Warners/ Universal/ Sony (WUS). What they don’t own outright, they distribute. It has led to safe, generic ,formulaic, music  from a few stars, and an almost complete loss of vitality.
Why have all the creative people been marginalized? Where are they?

Have you gotten the corporate memo?  Music is only these 5 musicians


Right now only the richest musicians back by the largest corporations can afford making videos (short films with big budgets). The Eighties are over. Time to put the emphasis on the audio music, not the visuals or the singer.  by getting rid of videos, the playing field is more fair, and the competition to get good music is much wider.







Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.
It’s turned middle age and become a bore.
It’s everything it used to oppose.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll is corporate and dull.
It’s phony music that’s lost its soul.
It’s paint-by-number and rotten to the core.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll has got to go.
Base, drums, and guitars are so so-so.
Enough of the clones of clones of clones.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll has got to go.
Its taken 60 years but now it’s so.
It’s lost the beat and doesn’t roll.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.
It’s a has-been and It’s your father’s olds.
It’s spirit is gone and the choir all knows
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.
