Cyberpunk as roots music: an observation
Thomas, Pascal J. "Cyberpunk as roots music: an observation." In "Cyberpunk Forum/Symposium," MR47/48 62-64 (see under Literary Criticism, L. McCaffery, guest ed.).
Relates cyberpunk to punk rock and "celebration of non-intellectual, almost involuntary creation, born out of spontaneity and enjoyment rather than calculation. The Dyonisian side of culture, devoid of the respectability of accepted myths" (63). Cf. R. Rucker "Raiding the Level," this Category.
