Episode 189 features our 2007 interview with RX Music, a half dozen tracks by the artist and five by The Bots, The Evolution Control Committee, Steev Hise, Steinski and Wax Audio. Check it out HERE.
My prediction is that this artist’s work will remain relevant long after GW Bush has disappeared from the daily media barrage. Even now, with little but his legacy to ponder, these political cut-ups are practically as powerful as they were, smack dab in the middle of the man’s eight years in office. RX Music is one of a handful of artists who really pushed the envelope, with regards to the creative reconstitution of political speech. Some of these collages really have to be heard to be believed.
