“… minds as witty and anti-authoritarian as the Melancholic Troglodytes can still find issues to write about in the twenty-first century: an oasis of intelligence and revolutionary wit in a movement drowning in whole-world NGO-reformist moralism … with the satirical freedom and venom which comes from being Marxist intellectuals with no comrades to offend. Such was Trotsky before 1917.”

Ben Watson, Radio broadcaster at Resonance FM and the author of Frank Zappa: The Complete Guide to his Music
