883. announcement

In which Negativland kick off their fourth album, 1987’s Escape From Noise, with not a song but an announcement. Which is rather appropriate for 1987, it definitely being a year where music didn’t suck so much as NOISE suddenly felt very relevant.  And nobody’s ever done NOISE as superlatively, as hilariously , as relevantly as Negativland, from suburban San Francisco (or is it Oakland?) – wherever Contra Costa County is.
