You like that brass bands foci, dont cha? It all makes sense.

I do I do!

Well it turns out that the official caption has let us down as usual. It's cruelly inaccurate. His prize is actually for a piece called Memory Bucket. The History of the World is an earlier work, which he explains here.

I wonder how much of my tax money went to pay for that?

Never before did I see the link between warehouse free parties and privitization, the tories should capitalise on this, there's an entire generation of arts students waiting to be converted.

I like it! Even if you sit back and look at it without paying attention to the words, it makes a really cool visual image.

Looks kind of like something you might see in Famiy Circus

I'm actually more interested in hearing that brass band playing acid house, seeing how I do enjoy both the sound of brass bands and acid house. Do any of those links go to a recording or sampling of that?

God I love London, take any two music groups, no matter how obscure and somewhere, in some little back alley there will be an acid fusion of the two. Probably an entire section.
TS - Turner Prize, Tate Modern - London, UK. - None - Was my tax money.

Artwork funded by American Taxpayers must include religious iconography and at least one bodily effluvient.

Does anyone else not get the link between Drum'n Bass and melancholy? I can't think of anything more pumped. What does the dotted nature of the line mean? Or I'm looking at this in too much detail.

Acid House Country...Alabama 3 , they of the Sopranos theme, "Woke Up This Morning". One of my favorite bands, bizarre though the concept of Acid House Country may sound.

Aren't they just? In fact, I believe I'm going to go home and put on their CDs tonight (no pizza delivery! yay!)

brass bands via melacholy leads roundhouse to kraftwerk. I find this interesting.

I read a bit more about Jeremy and it seems he assumes the roll of collaborative director for his work. He won for a video thing done while working in San Antonio called Memory Bucket. (The San Antonio space gets local and fed funding so TS can be outraged afterall!) As I read it, Memory Bucket, kinda like Hitchens documentary on Texasization but with poetry, looks at politics and history and religion. Specifically focusing on the Branch Dividians as Bush supporters, or something. See, I need a diagram.

Oooh. One more tid bit then I'll leave youse alone. Artpace in San Antonio- I was just assuming they were hooked into fed funds as we all are, but sounds like they manage the bulk of their kick-ass residency program through their private foundation funding (via the contemporary art loving Pace picante sauce heiress).

I'm sure Gordon's gin has helped many artists along the way.
