Test Card F: Television, Mythinformation and Social Control


“A graphic demolition derby through the culture of a factory-farmed and show-shocked society, a society whose sell-by date has long since expired. Using savage image/text cut-and-paste this controversial book explodes all previous media theories and riots through the Global Village, looting the ideological supermarkets of all its products: anti-fascism, Malcolm X, James Bulger, the Gulf War, satanic abuse, Somalia and Eastern Europe. Test Card F joyrides in front of the surveillance cameras, amid the rubble of a junkyard nation, and heaves television’s burnt-out carcass through the plate-glass shop window of ‘independent’ video and ‘community access’ broadcasting. It transcends postmodern and Situationist analysis in its positive refusal of the concept of Truth.” AK
