Releases TV Sheriff’s "Not 4 $ale"
(San Francisco, CA) OCD proudly announces the upcoming DVD release of
TV Sheriff’s NOT 4 $ALE.
Emerging from the LA underground
in year 2000, a self-proclaimed “video band” called TV SHERIFF
& THE TRAILBUDDIES hit the scene with their twisted take on performance
art and VJ remixing. They have since taken their unique act to venues
worldwide, providing animated commentary on the state of mind control
in the USA. THE TRAILBUDDIES focus on the banality of television, creating
rhythmic collages from appropriated clips of its most absurd broadcast
moments. And besides their virtuoso sampling, the madcap ensemble creates
original – and hilarious! – karaoke-style melodies on mass-media
NOT 4 $ALE is the culmination of years of
shredded/edited video-music compositions and live performances that
lampoon as well as pay tribute to the world of TV commercials, game
shows, televangelists, and network news.
"The inimitable manic media dementia dished out by the TV Sheriff
and his crazy crew is part radical Dadaist subversion, part spot-on
media critique, and all parts totally hilarious, outrageous remix mayhem."
- Holly Willis, LA Weekly
"If TV Sheriff was an aroma, it would require all three nostrils
to fully intake the exotic coagulation titled, 'Not For Sale'"
- Mark Mothersbaugh, DEVO
