Yesterday I returned from this year’s ATP Vs. The Fans a happy man. Not only did I see some incredible sets by Why?, Akron/Family, Grizzly Bear, The Books and Annuals, but I picked up a handful of DVDs in the Lost & Found Video Night series.
On sale at the merch tables of last year’s ATP, these sold out in a day or so, and I can see why. Nine volumes of completely inexplicable found footage – adverts, Japanese children’s television, banned films, music videos, animation – all of it thrown together with little regard for reason or logic. I can’t recommend getting hold of these enough.
