solidarity with african refugees

dedicated to all the rebels of the world

Professor Griff (born Richard Griffin) was the minister of information for Public Enemy until June of 1989. He gave a controversial interview to The Washington Post that included comments deemed anti-Semitic by many. In the ensuing furor, Chuck D eventually fired him from Public Enemy and even briefly disbanded the group, only to re-form them. Griff formed his own band, the Last Asiatic Disciples. The results were mixed, the slant predictably Islamic and Afrocentric on efforts like 1998’s Blood of the Profit.

Saponeria _Via degli Argonauti 20 (Roma)

Ingresso 10 euro

Il mito dell’hip hop old school made in U.S.A. arriva a Roma per
offrire uno spettacolo di puro groove in perfetto stile newyorkese:
un viaggio nella cultura musicale afroamericana nata sui marciapiedi
del ghetto tra la fine degli anni 70 e i primi anni 80.

A far gli onori di casa il duo Dj Baro/ Funk Pope, già protagonisti
delle passate edizioni del party Sweat Drops (AngeloMai, Circolo
degli Artisti, Muzak, Battle Of The Year) con il loro mix di funk,
soul, hip hop old school, rhythm&blues e grooves selezionati. La
consolle si preannuncia rovente e la serata assolutamente
imperdibile!

Il pullman per Roma
Il pullman da Firenze parte solo se riceviamo almeno 40 conferme
entro questo venerdì. Altrimenti dovrete organizzarvi con i mezzi
pubblici o con le vostre auto. Chi ha reali intenzioni di lasciare a
casa la macchina e farsi scarozzare ad un prezzo ragionevole ci
scriva all’indirizzo
http://www.switchproject.net/phplist/lt.php?id=MUVVWloMUQhLCwwEGANUWg%3D%3D
o telefoni al 346 0303984

More Brilliant Than The Sun:
Adventures In Sonic Fiction:
Concept Engineered By
Kodwo Eshun

More Brilliant Than The Sun is a machine for travelling at the speed of thought, a probe for drilling into new levels of possibility space. ‘ Its mission is to undermine the concepts this present has of “Health” and “Culture” and to excite mockery and hatred against these hybrid monsters of concepts.’
