Pon De Replay with Colin Fisher - unknown

Full review to follow. Sitting on the floor, surrounded by a reel-to-reel tape player, a walkman and a lot of patchcord-connected electronics, Montréal's Brian Seeger created a collage that kept the "pop" in noise-pop. For this set, he was joined by Colin Fisher on drums, who added an element of cosmic propulsion to the proceedings.

The festival's excellent run of matching visuals to music was continued here with Mani Mazinani's old-school video toasting, cutting between realtime footage, shots of an infinitely-spinning reel-to-reel player and found images. It looked like — and I mean this as a huge complement — the trippiest cable access show from 1987.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
