I was talking to someone the other day about music and was thinking that there's something analogous to slipstream occurring for the past twenty years there...

Aside from rap/turntablism/hip-hop/DJ appropriation, you've also got things like Evanescence, System of A Down, Linkin Park and the like.

Any thoughts?

I've never really thought about slipstream in terms of music until the other day when I read about the book Noise: Fiction inspired by Sonic Youth and a review that said that the band (whose music I loved in high school and college) 'operate in the foggy world between the real and the surreal'.

This reminds me about the old joke about the monks in the cave that are only allowed to speak one sentence a decade.
