Over the Edge and Negativland Gone?

January 6, 2006

One of my favorite Friday rituals – especially if I have to hunker down for long projects- has been to tune into KPFA’s Over the Edge, hosted by Negativland’s Don Joyce. It’s the perfect soundtrack to the closing of a boring work week. I haven’t listened a lot lately, due to other things, such as having to run a lot of work related errands, but would tune in occasionally. His recent series entitled How Radio Isn’t Done has been fascinating. There have even been a few Negativland related shows on, which I posted about previously.

But now it seems Negativland has let their domain and website lapse.
Hope this is a temporary thing. I know the four or five floptops are spread about the map and only sporadically come together for shows and releases.
We’ll have to wait and see.

BTW: get Death Sentences. It’s easily one of the coolest things they’ve done in years, and is certainly a departure from their cut-and-paste culture jam thing. It really reminds me of early Hafler Trio or even their first two albums, before razor tapes and anti-commercialism became an over-arching motif.
