Open Forum presents: CARY LOREN
mandag 14. mai 2012 kl. 19:00 på Kunstakademiet i Oslo
Open Forum invites you for a talk with Cary Loren, one of the members of the band Destroy All Monsters, the 14th of May at 7pm.
Destroy All Monsters was formed by University of Michigan art students Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw, Niagara (Lynn Rovner) and filmmaker Cary Loren. They were an influential Detroit band existing from 1973 to 1985, with sporadic performances since. Their music touched on elements of punk rock, psychedelic rock, heavy metal and noise rock with a heavy dose of performance art. They described their music as “anti-rock.” Destroy All Monsters never found mainstream success, but earned some notoriety due to members of notable rock groups like The Stooges and MC5 who joined the group. Although Destroy All Monsters never recorded a proper album, Sonic Youth singer/guitarist Thurston Moore released a three compact disc compilation of the group’s music in 1994. As mentioned Loren is also a filmmaker, and has been active in the US music and art scene for some years.
This talk is proposed in collaboration with Tidens Krav.
