Difference (from revision 8 to revision 8) (minor diff, author diff)
(The revisions are identical or unavailable.)
In the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt mocks the idea that Paul Simon and David Byrne are criticised for using non-western sources in their music: "I fail to see how that's exploitative in any way". (By grouping these two together, he appears to ignore the specific circumstances of the anti-apartheid movement's cultural boycott of South Africa at the time of Paul Simon's Graceland [link].)
World Love is a pastiche of Paul Simon's pastiche.
