Rising out of the collage tradition, Gitar (post-post-poster artists I Cut People and Ellipse Elkshow) holds their breath and stares critically at the sources of information and entertainment in contemporary Western society. Pop music, advertisements, radio, television and film are sent throughthe microscope and the meat-grinder, reorganized into fun, disturbing, satirical, informative and utterly ridiculous packets of sonic brain-food. Consume this, get Stuffed, and see if you’re still hungry for prime time. Released on Negativland’s Seeland Records: Buy it!

“I want to see hedge-fund managers tipped into cage fights with naked Gypsies; bank managers wrestle with lions in the O2 arena; failed regulators thrown to alligators in the Royal Docks; short sellers in pits of snakes; and distinguished City economists try their luck with sharks. They’ve had their heyday, their bonuses, their Porsches, their fine wines and oafish ostentation – they’ve had their fun. Now for ours. To the guillotine!” Featuring: I Cut People, Ellipse Elkshow, Gitar, Mae and Nao. Download at Bandcamp
