Apathy Band LP ~ featuring Bob and Roberta Smith, Jessica Voorsanger, Leonardo Ulian, George Lionel Barker, George Cleghorn and Calvin Tsai.
This the first LP of the Apathy Band. The band is the brainchild of contemporary artist Bob and Roberta Smith. The band has had many incarnations but this version has the experimental funk fusion sounds that George Cleghorn brings with saxophone, Calvin Tsai brings with his guitar, George Lionel Barker (also known from The Fucks) on piano, Leonardo Ulian on the Theremin and Jessica Voorsanger on spoken word.
The 'A' side of the LP is Bob and Roberta reading the text from his painting Letter to Michael Gove (as seen at The Royal Academy), his protest at the Conservative Party's reconfiguring of secondary education which has had a detrimental effect on arts and humanities education.
The 'B' side is the band performing their musical interventions.
This LP is not available widely. This particular copy in (new) mint condition is signed by Bob and Roberta Smith and Jessica Voorsanger. The LP is sent out in a record mailer.
