Screw Radio


Radio terrorist GREG GINN and ANDY BATWINAS don't need bombs or nerve gas to grab attention and hoist the media on its own petard. Recording as "SCREW RADIO", the sly duo use the words of politicians, journalists, concerned citizens and other annoying know-it-alls mixed with heavy percussions and guitar in order to turn the words against themselves and re-create them in sarcastic, apolitical, yet keenly observed context.

Radio terrorist GREG GINN and ANDY BATWINAS don't need bombs or nerve gas to grab attention and hoist the media on its own petard. Recording as "SCREW RADIO", the sly duo use the words of politicians, journalists, concerned citizens and other annoying know-it-alls mixed with heavy percussions and guitar in order to turn the words against themselves and re-create them in sarcastic, apolitical, yet keenly observed context. By judiciously sampling, editing, and other electronic wizardry, SCREW RADIO creates a new, hilarious AND danceable form of TALK RADIO VIOLENCE. Hear the elected buffoons themselves admit that "Political Leaders Suck" in the opening track, where the refrain "you hate your political leaders" becomes a catchy punk/techno chorus.

Strangely enough, these remorselessly transposed sound bites become revealing, incisive, anti-authoritarian and witty lyrics when funnelled through the SCREW RADIO blender. The phrase "do what the military does best" and the word "violence" are savagely and percussively juxtaposed on "Weed Out the Military and Police." Elsewhere, Marion Berry ("That Crack Smokin' Mayor is Back"), Ted Kennedy ("My Hero Ted"), and President Hillary "get interviewed" and dance mixed by SCREW RADIO, a metamorphosis that brutally exposes the politicians/media/voyeur/whore relationship. "Versateller/Anti-Christ" might be the strangest track of all. It features a fundamentalist Christian who ludicrously tries to link the generation gap, the use of versatellers, and the game "kick-the-can" into a bizarre Satanic conspiracy- it's the ultimate spoken word piece.

SCREW RADIO was brought to you by guitarists GREG GINN, who as leader and chief songwriter in BLACK FLAG and GONE helped invent an entire genre of subversive expression. He's joined by ANDY BATWINAS, who has engineered and participated in most of the recent GREG GINN projects, including the various GINN solo albums, CONFRONT JAMES, GONE, HOR,FASTGATO,KILLER TWEEKER BEES,GET ME HIGH,and POINDEXTER STEWART.
