This book is the product of a deranged mix-up of details from collages,
photos and mixed-media works (ca. 1975-2008) handpicked from my archive,
then scanned and multi-layered on the pc with a primitive graphic programme.
Combining my lifelong obsessions for the history of r'n'r and Dada,
Don't You Rock Me Dada-O is respectfully dedicated to the CabVolt
Contingent with thanks to Lonnie D. & The Vipers.
