Philip K. Nixon

Philip K. throws a brick through the window display and shatters our cozy, consensus reality.
Happy JFK day.

Philip K. Nixon: CutLure

Happy Thanksgiving

Kill Ugly Thanksgiving

Not quite the mix of angry political stuff and comedy that I've been putting together for the last few years and stuffing in the same Crass-like CD sleeve, complete with Gee Vaucher inspired artwork and distributing to like-minded partisans. I'm sick of Dubya jokes, and now that he's a lame bird, he defies all attempts at parody. Not that he doesn't make the appearance. Like an uncle that you wish wouldn't stop by for Thanksgiving supper, yet does- he's here. But don't worry, part two is more upbeat- just in time for when the tryptophane kicks in, so does the music.

A Brian Eno Interview

Politicised Eno to sing in Arabic

Brian Eno has been speaking about his return to singing live as part of a concert in London.
The former Roxy Music musician and producer, who has organised the concert will sing in Arabic with rising Arabic rock star Rachid Taha. The other acts on the bill will be Imogen Heap and Nitin Sawhney.

Eno has previously played with Taha in Paris, Moscow and St Petersburg.

The show is in aid of the UK's Stop The War Coalition - to be held on 27 November - a pressure group founded to oppose to the war in Iraq.

Eno, who has a long history of political activism, told BBC World Service's The Music Biz programme that all high-profile musicians had an "unfair advantage" and that they had a choice of how they used it.

"If you're in the arts or some kind of celebrity, you get the microphone pointed at you," he said.

"You can either choose to ignore that, and carry on talking about yourself, or you can say, 'Here's a chance to exert some sort of pressure for change.'

"I think if somebody doesn't do something about it - even if its only a baffled confused artist - nothing's going to get any better."
