Other Cinema DVD 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 manipulation.

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
