About The Reaction
the conditions of the Reaction's activity explain both its discipline and the forms of hostility it encounters. they are interested not in finding a niche in the present artistic edifice, but in undermining it. the Reaction is in the catacombs of visible culture. our times thus compel us, once again, to write in a new way. some elements will be intentionally omitted; and the plan will have to remain unclear. listeners will encounter certain decoys, like the very hallmark of the era. as long as certain notes are interpolated here and there, the overall meaning may appear: just as secret clauses have very often been added to whatever treaties may openly stipulate;just as some chemical agents only reveal their hidden properties when they are combined with others. however, there will be only too many things which are, alas, easy to understand. the Reaction seeks to convey the tenuous balance between object and action by which they maintain the tentative relations with the forces they organise, and how they are inherently subject to change, capable of resisting closure and objectification by acknowledging and engaging NOISE .

Shotwell 25 was formed in San Francisco's Mission District in 2004. We play world-jazz funk-hop, with stylistic influences from African, bebop, Latin and hiphop musical traditions. It's dance music -- we make beats that move feet.

Dirty and gritty garage rock n roll with a Rip Off sound. It's raw and straightforward and that's how I like it. Nothing over-complicated, just basic rock n roll with lots of energy. They've released stuff on Man's Ruin and Scooch Pooch so that gives a good indication of what sound to expect, and the drummer is formerly of the NEW BOMB TURKS... and Captain Sean Doe from THROWRAG guests on a couple of tracks too. The key is their plainness.. just fast and vulgar rock n roll. It's like cheap drugs and cheaper sex all mixed up. No pretense, short and fast and just a blast.
