...from a piece in this month's issue of The Wire about an early 80's German band called Die Tödliche Doris, where they talk about setting a microphone alight on live television:
"We had to really fight hard with the TV station to get more seconds of silence," recalls Müller, "because they were totally afraid that people would call to say something had gone wrong with the microphone. One theme that always interested us was information. It was a main point also for Throbbing Gristle. What was a real disaster for the information society was when the information was not working."
(or, perhaps, not flowing.)
