Check out Episode 08, featuring the Some Assembly Required interview with Negativland's Don Joyce, HERE.

I thought I'd kick off the last quarter of our tenth year with one of the very first interviews I ever recorded for Some Assembly Required. It originally aired in Minneapolis, in July of 2001; but if memory serves, this was actually recorded in 2000 (or even a year earlier), and played in its entirety, back when the show was netcast live from the broadcast studios at KUOM. So, that makes this interview anywhere from 7 to 9 years old...

So what has Negativland been up to since then? Well, there have been a few new records actually (and some re-releases), along with a couple of live tours and a traveling art show, to just scratch the surface. Check out the Negativland website HERE, for more info, and for more of our own coverage of the band, check out the following links:
  • Check out Episode 90, featuring the Some Assembly Required interview with Negativland's Mark Hosler HERE.
  • You can also read our profile of the band (masquerading as a Q&A) HERE.
  • Some Assembly Required was proud to sponsor Negativland's Art show at Creative Electric ("Negativlandland"), in 2006. Mark Hosler was in town to help install the exhibit, and joined us live on Some Assembly Required (at KUOM in Minneapolis) to talk a bit about various projects. I recorded the live show and decided to post it as a podcast the following week. An interesting decision, but sure to be of interest to die-hard Negativland fans. Check it out HERE.

Thanks for listening!
