GARY TOPP/CIUT 89.5 present culture jammers, NEGATIVLAND

Remember Casey Kasem’s swearing in radio outtakes? Or U2/Island Records’s lawsuits? Since 1980, Negativland, an audio-video collective originally from the San Francisco area, have created albums, video, books, radio and live performance by mixing bits and pieces grabbed from corporately owned mass culture and surreally re-arranging them to send a message that was never intended. “Twisted genius, compelling parody and satire as a grass roots weapon of consumer resistance” (Rolling Stone).

Doors at 8pm, show at 9pm.

WIRED Magazine
“Collage pioneers...genre-defying, densely layered, strangely accessible.”
Washington Post
“For more than 30 years, Negativland has earned renown for manipulation of both tape and media.”
