Not really. Just wanta talk about the music in my novel Twist. In 2075, how will we get our groove on? There are only a few mentions of music in the novel: soothing background music in the exotic office of the Great Man, Montrose; a string quartet playing beautiful music in that whack-job Sal’s account of murder at a garden party; and in a crappy juke-joint outside the protecting Wall of Wichita, the “classic” music of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Mick Jagger.

  1. Probably if someone were to make a cross-section list of the coolest music ever, these artists would be on it.
