about

This is a post-produced sound collage mix, originally done by Don Joyce of Negativland and Phineas Narco, in the mid 1990's. This is meant as a cultural snapshot album and commentary on the media response to, and treatment of, terrorism in the mid 90's.

The original, uncut version of this program is here:

archive.org/details/OTE_19970500_Running_Scared_II_Bomb_Scare

The sound quality of this post-produced version of this program is higher fidelity than Don's version since his was recorded on audio cassette tape, and the NCN version was recorded, from the headphone feed at KPFA onto hi-fi videotape during the actual broadcast.

The Late comedian George Carlin personally gave his permission to Phineas to use clips of him in this program and thought it was 'tremendous' and 'just fabulous'. The phone call voicemail from Carlin to Phineas about this program is included in the entire download.

If you buy complete program, you get the video for 'Snipping the Wire' in .mpg format as a bonus piece of material.

This program is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work, artistic in nature. Subsequently, more derivative tracks are not available separately.

All derived and referenced material used herein is meticulously accredited and/or fragmented / transformed / re-contextualized, and/or remixed from its original form, and is used fairly as a cultural reference in the subtext, and artistic narrative, of this unique 'syntopical' arrangement.
