At the beginning of the year, Adam aka LCKY from Tight Artists Net Gang helped us redesign our tumblr and turn it into a virtual art gallery that also shares music news with everyone. The effort has turned out to be a grand success, allowing us to share wild, silly, and sometimes even sublime art on the daily, and also helping spread the word about tons of off-the-radar musicians to a much wider audience. The thing is though, the plan has always been for TANG artists to show their work in this virtual gallery for 6 months and then open up the doors to different artists, just as any IRL gallery would change what they are exhibiting.

So while we will be very sad to see TANG go, every closed door creates the excuse to go get an ax and having fun smashing it down again!! In other words, this post is an open call to all your gif artists out there!! If you would like to create work for the Deathbomb tumblr, get in touch with us. We’d love to help share your work with all the kids out there in internet land! And even if you are an artist that shares work on the Tight Artists website, you are still welcome to hang your work up here. This is just an end to TANG being the exclusive artists for the Deathbomb tumblr. You can email me at dbombarc AT gmail DOT com. Thank you so much! (oh yeah, and there are perks too for contributors, assuming you like getting lots of free music!)

(oh, and don’t worry about if TANG and DBA will still work together in other capacities! LCKY and I have already been brainstorming an entire new Deathbomb website to create together. this exploration of insane webart has just begun!)

Ruth from Yola Fatoush sat down with The Girls Are blog for an interview the other day. The topics are brief and simple, but serve as a good introduction for this band that still is quite new despite the maturity of their music. Ruth, while talking about the conservative nature of most record labels, notes something I also consider a very important about audiences. Their intelligence.

“it seems to me like the general public (whatever that even really means!) has demonstrated on numerous occasions that they can be a lot more open minded than these people think.”

This belief is a huge part of why I wanted Deathbomb Arc to be a daring label that embraces new and unexpected sounds. Really stoked to hear Ruth/Yola Fatoush saying the same thing. Didn’t realize I could be even more proud of working with them on their latest cassette, but I am!

The Guantanamo Bay Museum of Art and History has opened its imaginary doors today and already is getting attention from places like The Atlantic. This is an alternate history museum. One where Guantanamo was successfully closed in 2012 and turned into this museum. Of course, the detention center is still sadly open, but thanks to the wonders of the internet, reality can be augmented via a website that imagines otherwise. The museum even has a google maps listing!

One of the artists showcasing in this museum’s virtual exhibition space is Adam Harms, aka LCKY (co-founder of Tight Artists Net Gang and designer of this very here tumblr!). Adam describes the work he is showing very elegantly:

In 2003 it was revealed that American pop music was being used by interrogators, often in conjunction with sleep deprivation and strobe lights, to torture prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. In 2009 a coalition of outraged musicians filed a freedom of information request with the CIA and FBI to release the list of songs used. The songs included hits such as “We are The Champions” by Queen, “Enter Sandman” by Metallica, “Dirrty” by Christina Aguilera and most famously “I Love You” from the children’s television show “Barney." 

This video is a collection of 18 karaoke performances of different songs from the torture playlist. I chose karaoke because they do not retain the cleanliness of production or the harmony of the original songs. The sound is abrasive, blown out, and the echoes of the room are heard, mirroring the experience of the music played at excruciating levels in a cell. The songs are performed by "regular Americans” highlighting complicity of all Americans in the torture their government performed on the inmates of Guantanamo Bay. 


Hop on over to the museum’s site to see the video in question, plus a whole lot more!

Were you unable to attend the Geffen in LA on Sat to see Adam Harm’s video? Fear not! It is now online. The artist behind this very tumblr and co-founder of Tight Artists Net Gang delivers his snake cult interpretation of Britney Spears’ life. But maybe it is better to let Adam speak for himself:

The snake as a symbol of femininity spans all cultures and mythologies. With the rise of patriarchal belief systems the snake turned from an object of worship into an enemy and monster. I have long been captivated with the tragic story of Britney Spears and believe her to be the most mythological figure of our time. This fan video draws parallels between her story and Greek mythology specifically the story of Medusa who was raped by Poseidon and then as punishment turned into a monster by Athena.

Are you like, “What type of experience will I have if I visit one of these DIY haunted mazes you keep writing about?” Well, Adam Harms aka LCKY aka co-founder of TANG helps answer that question with this hilarious video. Filming just his own reaction to the Burbank Backwoods maze, the film perfectly captures just how terrified (yet silly) Adam felt going through the haunt. Have fun!

And while I have your haunted attention, be sure to watch my film about Albert Reyes’ haunted maze!
