MARCH 11, 2003

'File under Sacred Music' is based on notions of simulation, live performance, and the real in a culture dominated by rock. The work is a 'live' re-enactment of The Cramps seminal 1978 performance at the Napa Mental Institute and their subsequent edit to recreate the bootleg video. A panel discussion featuring the General Secretary of the International Necronautical Society, a music critic/editor and the rockers, Ian Mackaye & Kim Deal, followed filming at the ICA, London. The first screening of the film will be at the Site Gallery (29th March) with its London premier back at the ICA (13th June). However, having been drenched in beer at the panel discussion, I am reminded how much I love a good kegger! -Charlotte Frost

Interview with Marc Bolan by Ziggy Thorington
From -> Jo-Anne Green
click to view MB: I adamantly resisted using distortion for a long time and finally just gave over to it in the ROK project. As I mentioned above, it's been important to me to approach the stage on its own terms and while I've flirted with varying shades of folkism in this regard (dynamic ballads to minimal solo lengths) ...

On Detroit... and MC5 Discussion
From -> jess
click to view If I wasn't on two 15-inch speakers, could move my Grateful Dead-following man away from the greenery and hadn't watched AC/DC's "For Those About to Rock" on the plane over, I would move there immediately.
