The Lévi Breaks

Claude Lévi-Strauss, meet John Bonham.

An anthropomorphism of sorts. Claude Lévi-Strauss' The Savage Mind (Pensée Sauvage) set to the kick drum pattern of Led Zeppelin's "When The Levee Breaks." As Lévi-Strauss dicusses "our" view of "primitive" peoples, John Bonham's thunderous right foot asserts its own theory of "the primitive."
