RC 160: Negativland 2 – Choice of a Negativ Generation

Culturejamming by Tim, (no) slogon by Negativland, teeth rotting by Pepsi

True or False, red or blue, eggs or peas, aluminium or glass, music or noise, whiskers or mittens, 180-G or 409, stupid or dumb, these are some of my favourite things.

The second part of the Negativland series takes us from 1993 and the dumb depths of legality to 2007 and No Business is good business (even if it is Acappella in your Head FM).

    You have made a new Negativland fan out of me! A lot of jokes from the 80’s I never quite got now make sense. Somehow I missed them back then. I can’t wait to listen to Part II later today.

    Brilliant podcast.

    Totally, semi-awesome little packages! Amazing set (as is the Beatles sets.) I think you’ve found your calling, man…

    Where, oh where diversity has gone?

    7 of the last 11 podcasts a centered of 2 artists…

    3 artists actually.

    I save that for the Odds and Sods shows, which are very diverse, and the Beatles shows have covers and mashups by a wide range of artists.

    And if you don’t like it, you can always get a refund….

    Oh and you’re fairly alone in liking the diverse shows, they get almost exactly half the listeners of the themed shows.

    I actually like them, what I meant is that a themed show is great, but you could divert the theme, anyway, it’s only my personal opinion.

    I dont mean it in a mean way, i really enjoy what you are doing. Especially the fact that you keep it free and stuff.

    Speaking of free music…

    May i suggest a Metallica special?

    😛

    PS: I didn’t say 3 artists cause the Pet Shop Boys was a single show
