NEGATIVLAND: Helter Stupid


Seeland 024
CD with 14-panel folded insert
1989 (reissued 2004)

Originally released on SST Records, this is Seeland Records re-issue of Negativland’s 1989 notorious ax-murder hoax project. In part one, Negativland exposes their own manipulation of the media when a startling prank of theirs swells to monstrous proportions, while the former side two has everything you once needed to know about radio’s selling of the past in a future which hadn’t happened yet, but is now old news. Upon its release, Negativland raised the bar on themselves by setting some provocative new standards for complex conceptual audio-collage work, and, in this era of intense media spin and the manipulation of public perception, this darkly humorous project is as relevant as ever. The upgraded and redesigned package comes with a detailed confession of how the hoax was pulled off.

SST Records may still be selling this album in an unauthorized edition from which we've not received royalties since 1992. Please buy it from us instead!
