Negativland

Profile:
The experimental-music and art collective known as Negativland (Richard Lyons, Mark Hosler, Peter Conheim) has been recording music/audio/collage works since 1980, producing a weekly 3 hour radio show ("Over The Edge") since 1981 until, hosting a World Wide Web site since 1995, and performing live on occasional tours throughout America and Europe. Negativland's particular musical practice incorporates found sounds and musical samples into their collage compositions.Their contemporary interest in collage (a hallmark of 20th Century art of all kinds) is prompted by the fact that art and commerce have now merged to a degree where corporate commerce now finances, grooms, directs, filters, manufactures and distributes almost everything we know of as "culture."

These guys are absolute heroes of mine. Not just artistically, but for what theyve done in terms of promoting media literacy, satire, commentary on the absurdity of US copyright laws, and overall ethics. Though they are best known for the U2 single (an excellent piece of plunderphonics and culture jamming), their whole discography is worth exploring. Escape from Noise is a great starting point with a potent concept and some actual songs among the sound colllages and experimentalism (Nesbitt's Lime Soda is hysterical!).
