Scott Soriano / PunkRockGuru with the Zap Gun
Exclusively for Borderline Magazine SFNP we´re in for a Borderline-Interview on Scott Sariano, a scrumptious scripe of Zap Gun / NeoWave and PaleoWave
Plexus : " Give us a lil´Gibble/Gabble to describe yourself..."
Scott Soriano : "I write, I eat, I read, I have no impulse control when I walk into a record store. I also sell books. I am a five dimensional man."
Plex : " You like it raw? What fascinates you with crud crud ?"
S/S : " One of the pleasures of digging for records is coming up with gems that defy easy explanation. Some things to ponder while listening to this strange but wonderful song."
Plex : "I know what you mean. Something I have listening to the sound of the clock ticking, Violent and twisted nightmare-scapes"
S~S : "There's Always a Way Out. Art, he's the main guy who runs the punk band. Kicked out after 2 months for other members were in a new wave bands called brave new world."
Plex : " As a punk guru, how would you like me just grabbing your image to post it here flyerstyle ? ..... "
S\S : "I do know that Americans will feast on these images. The images are our information. We live in a largely illiterate society, a society that can read but chooses not to. When it does read, for the most part, what is consumed is shallow. Often what is read is merely captions that accompany images. The words are there to sell a picture. Now, I wait for the next image. What image will we be treated to next? Another breast? Or another dead body? Humiliation or defeat?
We value the image more than the word. We truly believe that a picture is a thousand words, never realizing that those thousand words are single syllable exclamations. Ignorant, we think of the images as knowledge.
Today's image is of a head being held into a camera. It is the image that will determine what image comes next. The image demands a response. It does not counsel contemplation or reflection. Immediacy or introspection? It is well past time to step back from the images and start to think."
plex : " Our scope and emphasis is international. Art reflects particular communities but is a language spoken by all. Our Flux brings together artists who differ in their distinct
geographical and cultural temperaments, ensuring a constant flux of new ideas and an ever increasing
range of participating artists who benefit from the development : the act of making art on site at the moment."
We thank Scott a lot for guest and commentary
We thank Tom Kummer for borderline, the art of making things up, Recycle!
