about

Hello friends (and fellow conspirators),
Our newest recording project is called warpornTVprotestmusic. Its a DIY punktronic musical documentary imagined, created and
recorded at home from 9/2001 - 7/2002. It explores the effects of the media (and its limited scope of
representation) on our consciousness as well as our perceptions of reality. Its also about using the
available technology and tools to creatively express our dissent and frustration.

The artist must elect to fight for freedom or slavery. I have made my choice. I had no alternative. -
Paul Robeson

And you, are you so forgetful of your past, is there no echo in your soul of your poets' songs, your
dreamers' dreams, your rebels' calls? - Emma Goldman

When the mass media in some foreign countries serve as megaphones for the rhetoric of their
government, the result is ludicrous propaganda. When the mass media in our country serve as
megaphones for the rhetoric of the U.S. government, the result is responsible journalism
- Normon Solomon

Perhaps this is an obvious point, but the democratic postulate is that the media are independent and
committed to discovering and reporting the truth, and that they do not merely reflect the world as
powerful groups wish it to be perceived. Leaders of the media claim that their news choices rest on
unbiased professional and objective criteria, and they have support for this contention in the
intellectual community. If, however, the powerful are able to fix the premises of discourse, to decide
what the general populace is allowed to see, hear, and think about, and to "manage" public opinion
by regular propaganda campaigns, the standard view of how the system works is at serious odds
with reality. - Noam Chomsky, Manufacturing Consent, preface, pg xi

The powerful call us ignorant. - Subcomandante Marcos

Don't hate the media. Become the media. Jello Biafra

about

postfixE Lemont, Illinois

In the early 90's we started making recordings on a 4track tape recorder using instruments we found in the garbage & at garage sales. We were responding to our environment by taking solace in the practice of recording. Theory was largely disregarded for an experimental approach to producing musical collage soundscapes. Our live performances are more like guerilla theater than rock-n-roll. cheers. ... more
