Negativland

October 19, 2006

Points
Seeland Records

Followup to 1980’s debut S/T album (which I blogged here). Again, less focus on thematic material and more homespun audio mayhem. This one seems more family oriented – somewhat like sitting in on someone else’s family barbeque while on some kind of low-grade psychedelic drug. There’s an old lady singing and playing an accordion, a lovely little organ tune (with sample of like-minded Doug Kahn’s Reagan cut-up), and lots of ambient tv and household noises. And there’s also less emphasis on songs or attempts at musicality and more glorious noise. But it was just a sample of the chaos to come.

  1. And coincidentally Negativland is heading out on a mini-tour of the US Midwest & Canada next week. Details at their site.


  2. Yeah!
    I saw that, too.
    I wish they’d come out my way.
    Last time they were here was 1998.
