Description

Edition 3 boxset includes a cassette with 2 approx. 5 minute tracks of political and religious propaganda speeches and statements by Hitler, Lenin, the Pope John Paul II and others, set to very hard dance beats and dub effects (Artcore editions)- no performer is credited apart from N.P.I. (Neoist Propaganda Institute), an art object of Das Synthetische Mischgewebe, a stone with an attached loudspeaker membrane (it MIGHT produce music, but we humans are unable to hear it YET)...Neither the release nor its publishers sympathize with fascist ideas or ideals.

Neosim was a cultural movement that grew out of the 1970s mail art network and was influenced by Dada, Futurism, Fluxus and Punk. 

Monty Cantsin is a multiple-use name that anyone can adopt. The name has close ties to Neoism. It was originally conceived as an "open pop star." with the idea that anyone could perform in Cantsin's name and thus contribute to and participate in his fame and achievements.
