TUNE ASYLUMS - THE DEATH OF TELEVISION
"THE DEATH OF TELEVISION"
ASYLUMS are about to take you on a DIY journey back to the days of Noisy, Gut-busting, Fuzzy guitar music.
The bizarre chaos you are about to experience is far out, refreshing and off the wall.
No matter who you are, it’s time to turn up the speakers, sit up, wake up and listen.
Asylums are a Cool Thing.
Imagine those things missing from music right now. Imagine community and word of mouth rather than the omnipotent internet. Imagine the punk DIY ethic still burning, imagine vinyl and cassettes and video games and cartoons. Imagine “Post-Social Networking”. Imagine “No Social Networking”, even. A home-made video starring sock-puppets (as opposed to the human puppets one often encounters in music videos). The pop hooks of mid 90s indie transcribed via the fuzzy guitars of the late 80s American underground scene, like Blur if they’d grown up disgruntled in Seattle and signed to Sub Pop. A 1 minute 30 second blast of punk rock documenting isolation and commercialisation and the loss of innocence. Imagine that being released on Cool Thing Records, a label founded by members of Southend’s new music scene.
Imagine the Death Of Television. Imagine that.
