Laibach Invades KBOO

September 23, 2008

A Three Hour Laibach Special
Join us for a three hour marathon of music from Laibach and NSK (Neue Slovenische Kunst).

For over twenty years, Laibach
has been twisting insipid pop songs into sinister anthems, turning the
art world upside down with menacing imagery and film, utilizing
political propaganda systems as readymades in an unrelenting assault on
dogmatic beliefs while revealing the ‘hidden reverse’ inherent in Western culture.

We’ll explore the world of Laibach’s music, their cryptic and often purposely contradictory ideology, hear from compatriot Slavoj Žižek, as well as music by side projects 300,000 V.K., Germania and an interview with founding Laibach member and spokesman Ivan Novak, recorded on the eve of their Portland show.

Laibach currently on a tour of the US and their latest album Volk turns anthems from around the world – both ancient and modern – into lovely pop songs.

Friday, October 10th from 9pm to 12am

KBOO, 90.7 FM in Portland OR and streaming on the web at kboo.fm/listen
