Radiohead New Media Promotional Ephemera


Clever, captivating curiosities, they. Lots of cachet and an otherwise interesting exploration of consumer-generated media placement. More here.

Ireland's Independent

Picture 1.pngIreland's Independent, supposedly a big daily in the Town of the Hurdled Ford, had some nice things to say about a "trio of Texans" in their guide to music on the information super causeway. Pretty cool. Check it here or here. Wrecks 'n Effect.

//////The Static Jacks////////

A press release I received this morning:
"Hi David-
I'm a big fan of the blog. Do you have a mailing address where I can send a press kit of a new band I manage, The Static Jacks?
Thank you very much!"

The Static Jacks, though probably not very good even slightly whatsoever, easily have the best band name in town.

Elsewhere, the Times has a pretty interesting piece on an advertising photographer's recent encounter with one of his old images -- a 1997 Marlboro man co-opted by Richard Prince in signature fashion -- at a museum called the Guggenheim.

Caring and Not Caring. The Difference,
The Continuum.
