Emergency Broadcast Network - News Cuts, Experimental 7
1992, 28 min

The first release from this New-Hampshire based experimental video troupe, titled "Commercial Entertainment Product." They specialize in found footage, visual and audio samples, that are put together to shift the original largely political interpretation to a black humor with psychedelic twist. They travel the country with a station wagon loaded with monitors and a massive sound system, with a revolving satellite dish serving as a screen for a roof mounted projection television which outputs their rapid cut video antics. Like Clock DVA, there are 10 or so music-video style short pieces with varied themes. Another highly recommended selection.
