Public-access television is a form of non-commercial mass media where ordinary people can create content television programming which is cablecast through cable TV specialty channels. Public-access television was created in the United States between 1969 and 1971 by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), under Chairman Dean Burch, based on pioneering work and advocacy of George Stoney, Red Burns (Alternate Media Center and Sidney Dean (City Club of NY).
When the performative aspect of a band is equally as important as the music, where does one draw the line between performance art and gig?
"Hype Williams, the band, is named after the film maker responsible for Belly. Starring rappers Nas and DMX, it was a hyper-stylised, Nihilist mess and this London duo borrow its finer traits, its strut and loathing. From beneath a medicated haze they lace twanging Americana with seams of swaggering dread. They are Bobby Peru made music. "
"Hype Williams are deadly serious, despite the deadpan humour that permeates both their music and public personae. "
"We like to let our imaginations run riot and think of them as a latterday Throbbing Gristle, a bunch of art terrorists doing abusive, subversive things to mainstream pop culture from the margins. "
Inspired by the sounds and visions of forgotten b-movie film scores, classic fantasy games and lurid arcade imagery, the duo of Aaron David Ross and Matthew Arkell have created their own morbidly compelling discotheque, a vividly detailed flight of fancy in which the conventions of techno, Chicago house, industrial and italo-disco are transfigured into a singular phantasmagoric adventure populated by hushed screams, Gregorian dungeon chants and cinematic washes of mammoth sound.
Teengirl Fantasy is a pop group formed by Logan Takahashi and Nick Weiss while studying at Oberlin College. They've toured with Crystal Castles, Pictureplane, and A LOT MORE... basically they are insanely amazing and will blow your fucking mind! fo' real.
