Act of God
One placed a microphone near the speaker of a yellow 13” television set, the sounds being captured, and later edited with razor blades, on a reel-to-reel machine. The other creeped around Albany “borrowing” drum machines from “friends” and programming them with mindfuck time sigs like 27/16.
All of this for the sake of one 15 minute performance, during which most of the audience left -- some because they hated the music, and some because they hated the combination of black lights and seizure-inducing strobe lights.
They saw a man in the rear of the auditorium filming the performance. After being spotted, he abruptly left the building. Evidence suggests that the man was Karl Rove.
Five years later, Act of God surrendered their master tapes to FSR for release.
