Automatic Loveletter Part 2: Live & Loving It

October 11th, 2010 by Andrzej Automatic Loveletter Part 2: Live & Loving It

Those of you who follow this will know that I wrote about Automatic Loveletter a couple of months ago when I first started this blog. At that time I had just seen Juliet & Tommy Simms perform an acoustic show at Angels & Kings in the East Village and so I wrote about the photo […]

The Boxer Rebellion: Winning Hearts and Minds

September 30th, 2010 by Andrzej The Boxer Rebellion: Winning Hearts and Minds

I first met The Boxer Rebellion at Notting Hills Arts Club in London when I was hanging out there a lot in 2005.  It was a Wednesday night, so it was Alan McGee's Death Disco night. They'd just played a great set to about 100 people, maybe less. Sounding like a tough bastard child of […]

Theresa Byrnes: Inspiration and Art (in a wheelchair)

September 15th, 2010 by Andrzej Theresa Byrnes: Inspiration and Art (in a wheelchair)

Theresa Byrnes lives her physical life in a wheelchair. She is not defined by that wheelchair, but it's where she spends most of her physical time. As somebody who doesn't live in a wheelchair, I find it hard to think of living such a life. But Theresa bears it with excellent humour and I find […]

September 13th, 2010 by Andrzej Village People & Courtney Love in NYC: Where was Lady Gaga?

First of all, welcome to the new home of MORE Propaganda: The Blog. As you may have noticed, this is my photography website. So if you want to see more of my pictures, go have a wander through the galleries. I've been working on it like a dog for the last week and it is […]

Burning Man Xtra: Origins: Mutoid Waste Co.

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Xtra: Origins: Mutoid Waste Co.

So, given that I devoted last week to Burning Man, I feel it's about time to cover what I consider to be it's ancestors. The most obvious in America has to be Survival Research Lab (SRL) which was started in 1978 by Mark Pauline in San Francisco. That particular group deserves it's own blog, which […]

Burning Man Day 7: The Temple Burns

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 7: The Temple Burns

Now the Temple is something truly special. Some would say Magical. Certainly Spiritual. The Sacred Heart of Black Rock City, the Temple first appeared at Burning Man in 2000 when it was built by San Francisco artist David Best as a Memorial for a close friend who had died. Burning Man started funding the Temple […]

Burning Man Day 6: The Man Burns

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 6: The Man Burns

So today is the day. The Man burns. After a week of burning bacchanalia the moment of madness arrives. Tomorrow people will start leaving, but tonight they party. Hard. On this night last year, I saw naked people running through the desert with wild eyes and wilder cries. Lost and found was much the same […]

Burning Man Day 5: Raining Dust

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 5: Raining Dust

I've heard that this year it rained at Burning Man. Really rained. Hard. Seems weird to have a rainstorm in the desert. But then again, we had Hurricane Earl bypass NYC today. The clouds were amazing, but it didn't actually rain. So given the current conditions, it seemed appropriate to have these people with umbrella's […]

Burning Man Day 4: Indemnifying Death

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 4: Indemnifying Death

Now these guys give serious rides. First of all, they have the coolest warning signs. This thing is called the Teeter Totter Of Death and they have a really BIG roadwork triangle style sign which says 'Abrupt Decapitation'. It's enough to make the freaks froth at the mouth. As they line up to take a […]

Burning Man Day 3: Rocket In Your Brain

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 3: Rocket In Your Brain

By now, at least half of the 50,000 people at Burning Man would have added their own individual choice of rocket fuel to help their brains break the barriers of the civilized society they left behind at the entrance. Even though there are many new choices available in the market place, psychedelics are a perennial […]
