Britain is about to get at least some relief from the continuous assault on the senses, with a “No Music Day.” According to the official Web site (nomusicday.com), “iPods will be left at home,” “rock bands will not rock,” “choirboys will shut their mouths,” “jingles will not jangle.” All this is, of course, wishful thinking, because No Music Day has no legal force. It is simply the idea of one man: the maverick writer, thinker, conceptual artist and former rock star Bill Drummond, whose history as a member of the early-’90s band KLF gives him a certain authority on the subject of artistic self-denial.

Much more is here (hear).
