I Want My JacobTV

WNYC's Soundcheck from April 30, 2007

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

JacobTV stopped by the WNYC studios back in April 2007 along with guitarist Kevin Gallagher and his avant-rock ensemble Electric Kompany. Listen to a live performance of excerpts from White Flag, a piece including audio from videos shot by soldiers during the Iraq war and samples from an interview between Fox News's Bill O'Rilley and then president George W. Bush.

During this conversation, JacobTV also touches upon his obsession with American media, his background as a rock musician, the challenges of expressing speechlessness in music and even the fortuitous abbreviation of his name for English-speaking audiences.

Don't forget also to grab a limited-time download of Kevin Gallagher's iconic guitar recording of JacobTV's breakthrough work Grab it! for the duration of JacobTV on the Radio.
