TEXT ONE from Banned Production (run by composer AMK) was released in 1989 as a cassette showcase for artists whose primary concern was language (found, self-produced, manipulated, edited, collaged, etc.). Gregory Whitehead and blackhumour provided audio and texts, while I designed the package and created the illustration. All work here may seem primitive by today's dazzling technical standards, but its rawness and immediacy make it all the more interesting. In a world filled with the banality of Facebook and Twitter, this seems like the "real" thing. Long live cassettes and xerox!
