Table of contents



The first essay is about werewolves, and ties in Charles Manson, some semi-famous incidents of feral people, and the savagery of humanity, or something. It kinda reeked of pseudo-intellectualism as does a lot of the writing and didn't really go anywhere, or make any conclusions. But I got it after reading the second essay, which is a sympathetic interview with a necrophile, who had been put on trial in California after getting caught in the act. A-ha, I thought, now I understand what this book is getting at.

The first part, Apocalypse Theologies , is by far the most interesting. The essays spotlight all sorts of f'd up people and ideas ranging from the necrophile, to misogynists, masochists, self-mutilating performance artists, religious cults, violence freaks, self-castration, notorious punk rocker GG Allin, and so on. Presenting various extremist lifestyles in a sympathetic light really pushes the limits of "to each his own", which I suspect was meant to challenge the reader into accepting the legitimacy of any lifestyle choice, no matter how crazy, but especially the crazy ones.

Many of the subjects have their own version of the age old mantra "I'm normal because I'm comfortable with myself, and it's society that's f'd up because it can't accept that", which always strikes me as a little too defensive to be an honest claim, especially when it's an unvarnished look at these lifestyles, but it's fitting with the overall tone of the pseudo-scholarship. However, there is one article that is genuinely well written and reasoned, which criticizes the state of modern art. On the other hand, the second part The Invisible War , stumbles right from the starting gate.

You're know you're into the thick of pseudo-intellectualism with anything called the "invisible war", which is always about the little things hidden in plain sight that the powers-that-be are using to manipulate us all. It sets the tone for the rest of the book. He argues that things such as the weather, three day weekends, white noise, and various other unrelated things are being used to lull us into a false sense of security and make us more susceptible to indoctrination via devices such as TV, or something.

The remaining essays cover a huge variety of topics, mostly having to do with history and cultural criticism, all showing the hallmarks of pseudo-intellectual conspiracy theorist writing, including but not limited to, vague and broad definitions of the big ideas being argued, third-rate and illogical thinking much of it circular , and casual and frequent connections made between events and ideas established in legitimate scholarship and concepts and theories that are not only unproven but illogical to boot.

Apocalypse Culture by Adam Parfrey

The best example being an essay asking if genocide is being conducted on African Americans in the US, which is a sort of dual interview conducted separately of two writers; the one who argues against the premise has written about the subject for Time, talks very specifically and deliberately, and dismisses a lot of the questions as irrelevant, but acknowledging the plight of African Americans in this country, while the other who argues for the notion is extremely vague and talks in circles and uses a definition of genocide that is so broad, it could mean anything.

The act of pseudo-intellectualism comes from presenting both individuals as equals arguing legitimate, if differing, points-of-view, when one clearly outmatches the other. Just as the first part, the second part has one genuinely interesting essay, this one a collection of letters to the editor that include some fairly bizarre, incoherent, and poorly written grade-A examples of crackpottery, which the writer apparently believes are legitimate cultural expressions that shouldn't be censored, and not merely the ramblings of kooks. It's pretty funny considering that in the intervening years, those kinds of crackpots have found expression on the internet, especially in the comments section of almost every web page.

Overall I'd have to say, Apocalypse Culture is more interesting as an expression of American cultural and political extremism and paranoia, and as a tool of how to underline the importance of critical thinking, than a serious look at the subject matter, but still worth a look for the curious. Sep 16, Michael Kalb rated it it was amazing. The book that changed my life in at the age of 17 when it was first released by AMOK press. This book had led me onto the various trails that have put me where I am today. Adam Parfrey does not get enough credit for this compendium of chaos.

While now days this book is possibly looked at as "mild" you have to understand when it came out there was nothing and I mean NOTHING like it in the world.

When I returned, there Jane was sitting on the couch looking at me as if I had a roll in the hay with her granny backwards up-hill over briars, she then threw the book at my head and called me everything from a hate filled crazy to a child molesting pervert. So there you have it, one man's review of a classic, I cannot suggest this book for all deviants. Jun 10, Michael rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Teenage satanists, students of 90s subcultures, consumers of extremism.

I read the book, and was probably as fascinated as anyone else, but I scarcely remember it now. It may be one of the best of his later writings, retrospectively. Aug 13, S. Wilson rated it really liked it Shelves: Much of this anthology is comprised of articles written for obscure counter-culture magazines, as well as hand-made zines and handwritten letters or flyers, and is highly reminiscent of a time when the small press and self publishing were almost a form of revolutionary guerrilla tactics. Apocalypse Culture, which has seen two upgrades including a 25th anniversary edition and a sequel, is chock full of dark side of human nature that was not normally available to the general public, from necrophiliacs and masochists to schizophrenics and conspiracy theorists.

Everything from Lycanthropy to Eugenics is touched upon, and there are enough iconic personalities represented - Full Force Frank confessed psychopath and publisher of how-to mass murder newsletters , Antone LaVey Founder of the Church of Satan , G. Some of the work in Apocalypse Culture may seem a bit mild compared to what one can scrounge up with a simple Google search these days, but there are still materials to be found that even today are somewhat taboo.

But more importantly, this collection of taboo materials is a snapshot of a cultural component that many people are not even aware existed and to an extent still exists , so for many reading this anthology will be like lifting a rock to see what's been lurking under the surface of the past. Not for the weak of heart, fragile souls, or the easily offended, but highly recommended to those who are unafraid to stare into the abyss. Apr 22, David rated it liked it Shelves: Hasn't travelled, in time, as well as I would have liked.

Either that, or I've not travelled as well. I read this book back in the early '90s and enjoyed it a great deal, but, then, everyone was looking forward to the end of the millennium. Well, it's long since come and gone and the world continues, excepting a few wrinkles, as much as it always has. The book now reads more as adolescent diatribe than prescient and cogent cassandraing.

I'm sure there are readers out there whom will enjoy this w Hasn't travelled, in time, as well as I would have liked.

Apocalypse Culture

I'm sure there are readers out there whom will enjoy this work. Mostly, those trapped, psychologically, with the New Left and the Counter-Culture with a post-structural bent. And this will be the perfect book for them. However, I and the world have moved on. May 31, notvesna rated it it was ok. Mar 19, Michael Browne rated it really liked it. Fans of fringe cultural shit look no further. Some of the essays here are poorly written, but the inherent absurdity of the subject matter makes it worthwhile.

I question any person that is able to read this in one sitting. To read this in a single sitting is like being forced to watch a baby slowly burn in an oven, while taking a heavy dose of mescaline, while eating Lean Cuisine. Dec 03, Matt Reese rated it it was amazing. A classic in my opinion. What many squares may describe as "out there" I would have to say is just the tip of the depravity iceberg.

A book without equal.

Some of the stories are vulgar and descriptive. There were times I caught myself riding the bus reading to myself and making the silliest faces of disgust, strangers probably thought I was crazy!

[FR] Banished Ep.9 - Incendie Général ! :'(

Some of the stories were just plain interesting, things I have never thought about. Because this book is FULL of disturbing information I had to take a break in the middle, fill my brain with some "decent" literature, and then continue. I was amazed at how Parfrey ordered the articles, there were times prior to reading when I questioned why two articles were placed next to each other when the seemed to have no relation, Parfrey expanded my mind and proved me wrong! Jul 07, David rated it it was amazing Shelves: I don't even know how to categorise this book. I don't hardly even know what to say.

It truly earns its title, and it's mind-numbingly and shockingly frank and honest and raw. I'll say that I've never seen a more sober and genuine look at the psychology and mindset of a necrophiliac as was displayed in one of the early essays -- often it's a taboo, sensationalised topic that only elicits shock and horror. That was one of the big surprises with this book for me. Even though it was written in , I don't even know how to categorise this book. Even though it was written in , I think it still is very relevant for today, even in these post-millennial times.

Nov 03, Tristan Goding rated it liked it. It's definitely one of the weirdest things I've read in quite some time. I also think that this book's notoriety nullifies much of its power. Many of the concepts, explored in this book, were very shocking for the time that it was published. When you look at it today, in the Internet age, much of it seems rather tame.

Still, many of the articles and opinions, expressed in this book, are quite fascinating and bizarre, and it'll give you plenty to chew on and consider after you've finished reading It's definitely one of the weirdest things I've read in quite some time.

A few pieces in this book were genuinely interesting, some were incomprehensible rambling, and most were the sort of boring hateful nazi bullshit that "counterculture" white dudes start espousing with intention to shock really just hoping it will make them seem interesting.

Oct 18, Natalie rated it liked it Shelves: Some of the effect is spoiled by reading this in , knowing the 30 years of future history that many of the essay writers herein did not.
