Arise BSB Blog!

The BSB Blog lives! Our first event is next week and will mainly follow themes of sampling politics, culture jamming, intellectual property, media parody, and so on. Those slack folk at the Church of the Subgenius have been holding up the mirror to society since before you were in short pants, so in honor of all things BOB here is perhaps one of the best introductions to a film going around:

infos und videos unten (auf Englisch):

SONIC OUTLAWS (Craig Baldwin, USA, 1995)
Director Craig Baldwin, himself a master of film archive appropriation, collects insightful interviews with mass media jammers such as Negativland, Emergency Broadcast Network, John Oswald, The Tape Beatles, and many more. If nothing else, this is worth seeing just to hear members of Negativland confront U2’s “The Edge” about how U2’s record company sued the pants off Negativland unbeknownst to the Irish superstars.

KULTUR=KAPUTT (short film selection)
Jamming culture until it’s broken. Our selection of brutals from Emergency Broadcast Network, Negativland, People Like Us, Church of the Subgenius, St Sanders, V-Atak, Pomodoro Tone Style, and the very bloody depths of the copyright infringing internet.

VJ MEAT (Live)
VJ Meat is the anonymous avatar of V-Atak – an audio-visual label with connections to artists around the world and a driving force behind many meaty projects, including the VisionSonic festival in Paris. VJ Meat is a true visual ecarissor – he hacks, crushes, and laminates his different sources to the last fragment. He mixes the videos of V-Atak, Madame Chao, Lovid, and more, thus creating a subtly brutal, scathing, and immersive atmosphere.

OPEN YOUTUBE PARTY (guest host: Santisima Virgen Maria)
Request your brutal best! Or chat and drink beer while you try to ignore *that* goddamn video. Hosted by Madrid’s favorite media-chopping exile Santisima Virgen Maria!

Thanks to Pony Royal for their support.
