I'm very excited about Drew's talk... he will not only be discussing the TG album, but also Throbbing Gristle's relation to Matmos. A discussion about TG's influence and significance will follow.

huh? i heard from a reliable source (well, as reliable you're gonna find in the shadowy, precarious world of publishing) that Matthew Stearns, despite being a fourth generation US-born citizen, was nonetheless deported to Indonesia because of two op-eds that the Dept. of Homeland Security described as "treasonously subversive”.

one, entitled Mary Poppins Died for Our Sins: How the Bulgarian Minister of Personal Hygiene undermined the early American industrial waterways bringing the U.S. and Canada to the brink of war ran in O-Boy, the new Oprah Winfrey quarterly for men aspiring to be black, female media magnates.

the other, What if Dick Cheney still had all his hair? was published by Highlights Magazine, the children's monthly to which no one seems to subscribe, but that continues to be featured prominently in your dentist's waiting room.

Mr. Stearns was last seen somewhere in the Lesser Sunda Islands living in a mud hut and farming a 1 x 20 meter tract of barren land.

without speculating as to whether the Dept. of Immigration was acting within its authority or, for that matter, whether the guy had it coming, i'd simply like to suggest that the person touring the "Daydream" book is most likely an imposter taking advantage of the actual author's unusual predicament hoping to experience the kind of glory and glamorous lifestyle typical of a celebrated writer like Matthew Stearns.
