Radio Discordia 017: T.A.Z. - Hakim Bey and Bill Laswell

[Temporary Autonomous Zone]
Anti-Copyright 1992
Explorations of the political, the personal, the social, and the metaphysical from writer and spoken word artist Hakim Bey. A meld with musical terrorist Bill Laswell.
Bey advocates nearly everything, including creating free states for like-minded cabals and collectives. He recommends marginalized groups form secret societies and concludes with a lengthy piece on boycotting cop culture. Musique concrete cloaks his words in an eerily seductive melange of avant-garde noise and ambient music. But the sounds are almost immaterial. Bey's words are the primary focus of this disc.
A swirling, surreal vertigo of information and methods for "escape", woven with the kind of airy tones and hallucinatory rhythms that Laswell has been playing with lately, Bey's voice calms and prepares the listener for an age where missing information and the icons of late capitalist high-tech correspond with an increasing alienation of this "X-generation"'s most primitive needs. Most of all, Bey doesn't come across as a cheesy, overzealous, visionary bard, but presents us with ideas point-blank, allowing us to be choosy in aiming our own forms of poetic terrorism against those forces that attempt to suppress and homogenize humility and free thought.

50 Years of Beauty In The Streets (May '68 Revisited)

It’s 50 years on from 1968 - a year that saw demonstrations and revolutions around the world, the beginnings of anti-war and civil rights movements in the US and the shocking assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. It also saw the start of the Nixon Administration, a successful orbit of the moon and the dawn of the television age that brought the world into living rooms.
Australian ABC's Radio National has been exploring what it was about 1968 and how it changed the way we think about culture, identity and politics today
