I’m Not Thick – I’m Just Busy! An Evening of Ambivalent Debauchery hosted by GOT 2 B RADIO
Ambivalence suggests strong feelings… in opposition. The prefix, as in ambidextrous,” means “both.” The rest of it means “vigor.” The word suggests that you are torn… between two opposing courses of action. GOT 2 B Radio are hosting the closing party of group exhibition Feral Kin, at Auto Italia in Hackney. They are also launching a new online platform where all of their radio shows will be available for download as podcasts.
Got 2 B is a radio serial, presented by Emily Pope and Ruth Angel Edwards, artists who explore the over-proliferation of populist conversation and music through collaborative sound-work. They utilise the banalities of daily conversation to create narratives which cut between satirical and earnest in their observation. The programme also collages soundbites from news bulletins and adverts, re-contextualises selected songs, which the artists insert into the programme, to provide the listener with an interpretation of specific neoliberal landscapes. Got 2 B will continue to respond to and challenge current events and trends, in an ongoing dialogue with popular consciousness.
Got 2 b is aired monthly on Resonance 104.4 FM. The On Coping Series was commissioned by Auto Italia as part of Auto Italia’s On Coping Residency: A Reading For Liverpool. A section of GOT 2 B AMBIVALENT was published by Bookworks in Happy Hypocrite #ACCUMULATORPLUS, edited by Hannah Sawtell.
