The Uncivil Society in association with Suburban Utopia Projects presents it’s twelfth release “The John Dewey Experience”.
American Philosopher John Dewey believed that students thrive in an environment where they are allowed to experience and interact with the curriculum, and all students should have the opportunity to take part in their own learning.
Inspired by these ideas, Gorilla X draws from a wide rage of Dewey’s writings and explores the ideas of how democracy and social reform are inexorably bound to the process of state mandated education. Both Dewey and Gorilla X make a strong case for the importance of education not only as a place to gain content knowledge, but also as a place to learn how to live.

I do, because I love to do it. I understand and accept that I am a hack musician, a terrible vocalist and a sloppy graphic artist. I don’t care about achieving perfection, because I am happiest while being engaged in the exalted messiness of my creative process. I don’t worry about capturing the perfect take because the time I spend chasing that false god might keep me from discovering a larger truth. I am satisfied by the pure joy I derive from expressing myself without filter or restraint, even at the cost of shutting off others ears and minds of my friends and family. I have embraced this compulsion for creative expression and found a way to have it be part of my life, for better or worse.
