"I’ve always relished the low-fidelity of a race track’s PA. There’s simply no other effects-pedal that gives one the same distortion as a speedway’s sound-system. On March 19 1997, I got access to the Longhorn Speedway in Austin for a few days leading up to a show by Survival Research Labs. I wanted to experience what it would be like to hear one’s favourite sounds transformed through such a device. Keeping to the motif, I started with playing car crash sounds over the race track’s PA. I blew the whole sound-system in about a hour. It took all afternoon the next day to fix the amp, and re-wire all the horns around the oval. On the third day I was soon to find out that no matter which one of my favourite sounds I put through the PA, it would always end up sounding just like a car crash in progress..."
19/3/2004 Seattle: Original cast members Colin Upton, Ken Gerberick, and Fraser Hall joined GX Jupitter-Larsen sitting around a small amplified card table. Each rubbed a bright pink calculator against some very harsh sandpaper. Pink dust literally poured off the sides of the tiny table as a thin pink haze hovered over the performers. The Untitled Title Belt was used as an extra sound source. The resulting vibrations were an abrasive severity that seemed to make everyone in the gallery severely happy. This 25 minute performance ended when one of the performers used a crowbar to smash up the table. Entitled “The Haters 25th Anniversary Show.”
