"You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no Third Worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petrodollars, electro- dollars, multi-dollars, Reichsmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today."



This text - pulled from the late Sidney Lumet’s 1976 masterful cinematic critique of the convergence of American media with finance capital 'Network', in which a ruthless media executive lays the hard reality of postmodern global affairs on the rogue broadcaster trying to expose some truth - perfectly distills the reality of the cultural landscape. All culture is propaganda. Everything you hold dear is connected to that which subjugates you.

This podcast System of Systems, hosted by a couple of sad bois - millennial failed artist and cultural critic Adam Lehrer and zoomer writer/musician Will Samson - deconstruct art, culture and politics, and attempt to understand the pervasive conformism that has saturated it all.

    PREVIEW Attacking the Castle from Within (W/ BILLY CORGAN)

    PREVIEW Attacking the Castle from Within (W/ BILLY CORGAN)

    Around August of 2022, Adam opened up his email to find what was a message of profound encouragement, and could hardly believe it when it was addressed from "William Patrick Corgan," otherwise known as the frontman of Adam's first ever favorite band The Smashing Pumpkins. But that's exactly who it was. Billy had read Adam's 2021 book 'Communions' and, from there, a creative camaraderie developed.

    Now, Billy is on SOS by SP and completing the circle. Here, the icon of rock discusses fatherhood, the experience of being at the zeitgeist only to watch the zeitgeist fracture and tether, the new Smashing Pumpkins album Atum and the podcast that Billy has used to launch each of its track in its three-part rock opera song cycle, Judas Priest, the Scorpions, attacking the castle from within, AND MORE!!
