“Critical aim remains sharp…” More Real Life Rock reviewed in ‘The Current’ (8/5/22)

“Marcus refuses to lay all his cards on the table. He does not write catalog copy. He wants to leave you with an impression, not a description—his impression, not the one he thinks will get him the most ‘likes.’ (Often, and glibly, people take Marcus’s writing about a topic as proof he likes it. Hardly.) This sort of thing drives editors nuts. One item, on an exhibition in Florence, Italy, describes the fascist militant Ines Donati this way: ‘There is a lot of the Twentieth Century in that face.’ I began to imagine Marcus having to field fact-checking emails asking for verifiable proof that the Twentieth Century does, indeed, live on the inside of this person’s face.”
Michaelangelo Matos, The Current
