I wrote a blog at Blurt Magazine, musing about the the current state of gentrification in Brooklyn. Is it reversing ? stalled ? or just of a different nature...

The Crazy Homicides - Twilight of the old Brooklyn [Sep. 13th, 2008|03:56 pm]

[Current Location |Brooklyn, NY]

This is a story I wrote called The Crazy Homicides.
It takes place in Park Slope, Brooklyn where my recording studio has been for 27 yrs, back when the neighborhood was in a major downward spiral. It's now a land of baby strollers, micro-breweries and fancy coffee shops. Bill Laswell, producer, and then studio partner, was involved. Africa Bambaataa also got drawn in. This is fun: The Crazy Homicides

new monthly blog at Blurt Magazine - What Is Punk ? - 1st edition [Aug. 1st, 2008|09:46 pm]
Who is Martin Bisi and why do we care ?

Martin is doing a monthly blog/column at Blurt Magazine on-line.
The first edition is up, titled "What Is Punk ?".
  It's meant as an introduction to himself, and puts him in the socio-musical context of what Punk was during his late teens in New York - 1977 -  and what it meant later, and now.
 To spice things up, he got some good quotes from Legs McNeil (author of "Please Kill Me", and original coiner of the term 'punk') and Lydia Lunch. There are references to a bunch of people  Martin has worked like Thurston Moore, Ramones and The Dresden Dolls

 find it HERE:  Martin Bisi - What Is Punk ?

There's stuff to look at from the rousing CD release party in NY . Martin had extra performers on 2 songs, including street performers from the original Goth Chick '98 vid, and Ajda from Black Fortress Of Opium, singing... see below. The photo gallery has shots of the venerable John Zorn and Bill Laswell , who wowed the crowd with a duet performance

Paul Wallfisch (Botanica, Little Annie) and Martin discuss the similarities between religion and music, art in general and sports - why do people want to fuck their gurus, and other prickly questions.. heady intellectual banter -fair warning
