Abstract: 
"Broadly speaking, Bush and his posse haveb been really good for creating a global surrealist movement. This mafia has a real talent for transforming personal headspace, for challenging our whole notions of truth and reality. We're dedicating this issue to this evil sense of psychological psychedelia and a radically detached personal point of view."
