Download and read online Wicked Messenger in PDF and EPUB Bob Dylan’s abrupt abandonment of overtly political songwriting in the mid-1960s caused an uproar among critics and fans. In Wicked Messenger, acclaimed cultural-political commentator Mike Marqusee advances the new thesis that Dylan did not drop politics from his songs but changed the manner of his critique to address the changing political and cultural climate and, more importantly, his own evolving aesthetic. Wicked Messenger is also a riveting political history of the United States in the 1960s. Tracing the development of the decade’s political and cultural dissent movements, Marqusee shows how their twists and turns were anticipated in the poetic aesthetic—anarchic, unaccountable, contradictory, punk— of Dylan's mid-sixties albums, as well as in his recent artistic ventures in Chronicles, Vol. I and Masked and Anonymous. Dylan’s anguished, self-obsessed, prickly artistic evolution, Marqusee asserts, was a deeply creative response to a deeply disturbing situation. "He can no longer tell the story straight," Marqusee concludes, "because any story told straight is a false one."

It was a bus full of musicians and singers and painters hurtling through the dead of night, making a movie, writing songs and playing some of the most incendiary, intense and inspired rock n roll, before or since. (T-Bone Burnett, from the Foreword)In the Autumn of 1975 when America was festering with Bicentennial madness Bob Dylan and his Rolling Thunder Review – a rag-tag variety show that Dylan envisioned as a travelling gypsy circus – toured 22 cities across the Northeast US. In amongst the motley crew that included Joni Mitchell, T-Bone Burnett, Allen Ginsberg, Mick Ronson, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie and Ramblin Jack Elliott, was playwright Sam Shepard, ostensibly hired to write the script for a Fellini-esque movie that would come of the tour.
