Emergency Broadcast Network

Joshua L. Pearson, the most visible man behind Emergency Broadcast Network, has a website. Had I known this, I would’ve stopped praying every day for a new EBN tape to finally be released, cause Josh has graciously offered elevenses up for download. Not familiar with EBN ? Throughout the 90s they pioneered the idea of VJing in complement to DJing. I last saw them in 1998 (soon before they dissolved) in Philly when DJ Spooky’s tour came through. Salad days. Bloody Ears. (Those were loud shows!) Keep EBN in mind if you’ve ever seen the Avalanches’ “Frontier Psychiatrist” video — EBN was there first. (And Negativland and the Residents before them).

Below, “378” by EBN (courtesy of youtube and user electricmonk).
