“Force the hand of chance” - A message from Thee Temple Ov Psychic Youth (1982)
“8 Transmissions 8” crosses the borderline between entertainment and instruction, switching the viewer between the accessibility of pop videos and depth of ritualistic forms and images. These videos are celebratory, drawing a modern parallel with pagan rites of initiation.

TRUST - FTF (TRUSTMIX)
A group I’ve been looking forward to checking out live for a long time is making its way through Portland on Sunday, April 15th. Toronto synth-poppers TRUST will be at Rotture along with two local favorites of mine, Vice Device and A S S S. So check out the TRUSTMIX of the totally gnarly TRUSTTUNE “FTF” if you’re looking for something to get psyched about. This show and the Tropic of Cancer/Demdike Stare show (also at Rotture) are sure to be some of the high points of the spring.
