Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

Hi there, whereever you are.

I don't know what to say, there's too much to say. Or too little. It happens when you're overwhelmed. And whenever it happens, I just resort to a dry truth.

Born in 1970, living in North East Italy, Italian, male. I'm here because John Maus is the first musical/intellectual/emotional phenomenon that shakes me in years. Yes, I know I'm late, probably I was sleeping, or I was too absorbed in something else.

I love his music, but not because I love the eighties. The eighties, for me, were the ones described by Killing Joke. "I have to push, I have to struggle". I love his music because he really is a time traveller, although only intellectually and not physically. But I like to think H.G. Wells would be pleased. I love his philosophy, but not because it is clear cut. I love it because it is reminiscent of Deleuze in the best sense, it is rhizomatic and not arboreal. I love, most of all, the emotional effort, the idea of finding your way to be yourself, no matter if you choose the apparent confines of pop music, as Maus does, or something else. But Maus is just "radical" in the way he pronounces the word: just like "awesome", or "cool", and not like "I'm a staunch supporter of whatever effing idea you may effing fit in the effing limited space of the effing social confrontations which effing puts masses against other effing masses, effingly reducing your being to an effing heritage where personal identity doesn't matter anymore". Persons, not vehicles. When you're a person and not a vehicle, inhumanity has no place.

And that means: I love John Maus because he's a great artist who's struggling to be himself and therefore free. His only moral obligation is to be excellent to someone else, in his own way. In this, he reminds me of an excellent and eccentric Italian actor, Carmelo Bene, who said: "Doing masterpieces is not enough, you need to be masterpieces, even failed masterpieces".

I'm Alberto. Greetings from Udine. Thanks for this space.

Hello folks! My name is John (or Johnny). I'm 18 and I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in the Midwest. I'm new to Maus Space but I'm pretty familiar with this place because I've read a lot of threads on here over the past two years. Like all of you, I'm a massive fan of John Maus, Ariel Pink, and many many other bands/musicians. I've got a Last.fm account you can find linked on my profile. I like to take photos, make art, and play guitar. I'm so glad to finally be here! :)

Hi i'm Connor, I've just graduated as a Film Student and I'm currently living by the coast in Falmouth UK with my partner Eve.

I got into listening to John a few years ago when I was swapping records with a friend. I showed him Arthur Russell and he Maus. I've been an explorer of the forum for awhile now but I've just made the leap to joining.

I'm into the films of David Lynch and John Carpenter, a keen reader of critical theory, maker of music, and completely dumb when it comes to how to work forums. But Maus speaks to me, I'm not completely sure still if its the music or the sheer force I feel upon listening to it. His work, to me, is what artistry is. Have'nt had the opportunity to see him yet but I hope this will change soon..

So thats me, thats all I am, looking forward to being here

Hi everyone, I introduce myself too.
I'm Andrea, from Italy, 31 tomorrow. What can I say about why I love John Maus. Maybe he's the only true poet in music nowadays. I agree with Alberto's Carmelo Bene reference "YOU have to be the masterpiece", and that's what I see in him. Plus I percieve his musical style is eternal, I don't hear the 80's like it may appear. You can hear his melodies and armonies are very classics, immortal. Add to it the pain and struggle that to someone may remember the punk, but I see the Bernini's Ludovica Albertoni's extacy and that same projection towards the "other" the "outside".

Finally writing here after the news about this european tour, and maybe share something with you about it. (:
