We’re Not Dead.

Wow. It’s been too long. Life has gotten in the way of pursuits.

However, we did recently post some audio on Soundcloud to explore that social network.

You can hear a sample track from an upcoming release, Thank You Ron Rivest. For everything.

UPDATE: Apparently, we already had a post called, We’re Not Dead. From 2007. At least it has been 6 or so years since that last one.

Be on the lookout for more audio, art, and theatricality.

As stated in Forty Years of Fluxus, let’s incorporate these ideas into experiment of 2014:

As I see it, Fluxus was a laboratory. The research program of the Fluxus laboratory is characterized by twelve ideas:

globalism, the unity of art and life, intermedia, experimentalism, chance, playfulness, simplicity, implicativeness, exemplativism,
specificity, presence in time, and musicality.

Music: You Gotta Be More Like Todd Rokita

(Heart) Rokita Band

We managed to capture a rare performance by the (Heart) Rokita Band, a three piece band from the Greater Lafayette area, at last night’s (October 4th, 2013) Vienna Open Mic.  This bootleg is a censored version due to a request of the employees.  Apparently there were children present.

Don’t worry. Rumor has it that a complete, uncensored, polished studio version will be released soon.

Lyrics:

You’re spectacular, but you gotta be frugal.
You’re beautiful, but you got to be honest.

You gotta be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

You always do what’s best for us.
3/5 of the 4th District got your back.

You gotta be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

Insidious people write insidious laws.
Don’t worry Congressman, we gerrymandered for the cause.

We should all be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

Well it went. Vons Record Store Day. Jurassic Pop put on an awesome festival. Some more audio to follow. We were really blown away by one particular set by a new up and coming band, The Unusual Few.

Self-described as, a “Filth Pop” band from Lafayette, IN. Influenced by everything from 60s garage to 90s alternative, deriving mostly from old school punk rock, a great band for angsty teens. Raw energy. Loud performance. Bloody bass. Check out our bootleg of the spectacle.
