The great thing about freeform is when you don't have a cohesive post, you can just stick completely unrelated things together and if anyone calls you out on it, you can accuse them of being a colonialist fascist. Today I've got two very different mines for you to trench through. The first is the fluxus oriented youtube channel called Art Classic News. Posted below is one of their gems, footage of a 1968 Wolf Vostell installation called E.D.H.R. From a musical perspective, this clip is striking for it's protoindustrial clangor. From a multimedia perspective, this particular work was influential as one of the first appropriations of TVs in an installation setting.
I've also been spending a lot of time lately checking out classic rocksteady sounds from the You and Me on a Jamboree blog. Tons of full albums downloads from out of print roots reggae, ska and dub, mostly from the 60s and 70s. Posted below are two of mp3s from albums I've been enjoying the past few weeks. I'd especially recommend checking out the Ethiopians. Happy hunting.
