Zero Books. Item #4014
Brad Pitt's Dog is the first compilation of the writings of curator, publisher, and collector Johan Kugelberg. Over the past 2 decades, Kugelberg has established himself as an investigator and champion of underground culture, editing books such as True Norwegian Black Metal, The Velvet Underground - New York Art, Born in the Bronx and Beauty is in the Street. In Brad Pitt's Dog, Kugelberg showcases his irreverent, entertaining prose, pulling from his contributions to magazines such as Vice, Dazed and Confused, Another Man and others. Exploring topics ranging from the psychogeography of record fairs, eulogies for Michael Jackson and Malcolm McLaren, a discussion of satire on Youtube, and essays on artists Dash Snow and Daido Moriyama, Kugelberg's writing fills a special niche; an authority in the history of counter-culture who isn't afraid to look to or speak to the present moment.
