Outside The Law, Which is Language

I remember Fiona playing this during a Hard to Read segment in the studio years ago. Especially delightful after that heavy metal harp glissando drop at 2:18. "Outside The Law, Which Is Language" is a nice title too, and reminds me of something Vanessa Place said in this MPR interview:

I spend all day looking at such fantastic things 
One interesting image after the next
Each is more interesting than the last 
But if the fun must come to an end
I will simply do it again

Listening to a child sound out the words makes you wonder if every manifesto isn't, in some way, written with a child in mind. Some of these kids make it all the way through manifestos I couldn't commit to finishing. Some of these kids are angry because the world isnt the way it should be, or because they'd rather be playing minecraft. Or they are angry because 9 year old boys don't want to read the part in S.C.U.M. manifesto about castration.  Its harrowing, funny, and almost hopeful. And a really great reading list too. 

Part 1.

Tracklist: Pandrogyny Manifesto by Breyer P-Orridge / Wear Sunscreen by Mary Schmidt / Theatre of Cruelty by Antonin Artaud / Auto-Destructive Art by Gustav Metzger / Abolish Restaurants by Prole / Ban the Bomb (Brussels Declaration 1) by Provo / The Cosmic Redistribution Service

Part 2.

Tracklist: Manifesto (Architecture & War) by Lebbeus Woods / A Declaration From the Poor Oppressed People of England by Gerrard Winstanley / 100 Impossible Artworks by Dora García / Blast! by Wyndham Lewis / Dada Manifesto by Francis Picabia / Dada Manifesto by Hugo Balls / Revolution in Dreams


More from Stanley Schtinter.  Important Books (or, Manifestos Read by Children) ran from May 2021 to May 2022 at Whitechapel Gallery in London, with a monthly installment on Montez Press Radio

Clueless Agency: Paramour's Portmeirion Hush-Hush Den

Great listen via Prague-based Vojtěch Novák (of PGS collective). Murder mystery but all killer no filler fantasy-mix of music and lit with some hidden gems, especially Mark Leckey's contributions (lightly edited ;0) and a procession of frogs. This all weaves into the larger narrative of Cluless Agency, a series of traveling exhibitions. Dinner theatre but the dishes are icky.


Muslimgauze - Maroon Of Gaza (prelude)
Mark Leckey - O Magic Power of Bleakness
Ron Grainer - Night-Time Drink, The Prisoner
Michael Giles, Jamie Muir & David Cunningham - Ghost Dance
Hajj - Dad is Destroying The World For My Sake

i want to be art


More Dial Records from Carston Jost --




If you haven't heard Viktor Timofeev's recurring show Sibling Gardens you have some catching up to do. Looking now, there's seven episodes in the archive hosted by Viktor himself, in which artists who primarily work in visual media are invited to contribute recordings, songs, and sound collages for a mix compiled by Viktor.

Last week, Viktor handed the show over to Tomasz Kowalski for a guest appearance. The episode is played and sung in the form of a spontaneous outdoor ritual or folk operette, performed by Kowalski on digital glockenspiel/bells orchestra, classical dx guitar, midi harp, flute and voice accompanied by a loop choir. Each musical section is interrupted by Zuzanna Bartoszek's readings of her poetry, to which each subsequent fragment loosely refers. I loved Zuzanna's poems, and their cynicism and irony, in the context of Sibling Gardens—a show which links disparate artists across disparate fields and brings them together across time and space—became appropriately and pleasantly tangled. 


I put my phone away

Again, the day collapses upon me with all its weight

I surrender with joy

Some window opens

And a landscape is revealed:

Violet hills,

An awry cliff,

And something like a dying bonfire

This is my painting

Enlarged, printed, and hung just behind the window

It obscures the whole view

Except a gap at the bottom

A narrow strip with a street

With fucked-up cars

And fucked-up people
