There is an alternate timeline in which John Maus, rather than Ariel Pink, was the one who collaborated with Madonna.* You only need to listen to Maus’ 2006 LP Love Is Real once to know that it would have been something worth hearing. The academic punk heartthrob is in majestic form here. Psychedelic minimal wave paeans like ‘Rights For Gays’ and ‘The Silent Chorus’ spiral ever-higher.
*In this reality Maus divides his time between being a massive pop star and president of the U.S.A.. It’s a great timeline.
