Cabbageboy: Departure

(2:46)  Cabbageboy is Si Begg.  This is from "their" 1999 release, Genetically Modified.  As a whole, the album (if that word is even used anymore) is more "sampling" than cutup-- there's enough of it on this piece to attain a kind of critical mass.

Cassetteboy: Cameron's Conference Rap

(1:52)  Cassetteboy continues to rock.  Here's one of their latest, on the British PM.

I'm not sure how this is done but I suspect there might be some kind of search-and-cut software at work-- not on this one maybe,

...but perhaps on this bit from the Fallon show.

CutUpSound: The Preacher's Supposed To Be Rich

(8:23)  This is one of a series of bits* I did about preachers, and the only one not in a collection.  I think.  Anyway, it seemed like a good source for the pecuniary aspect of Christianity.  Trinity Broadcasting is known for the "Prosperity Gospel", which I guess is some kind of cosmic pyramid scheme, and the guy on this bit, apparently one of their star salesmen-- uh, ministers-- delivers a rousing sermon on "Why God Wants You To Make Me Rich".  (Spoiler alert: it's souls.)

* The others are tracks 6-8 on this, and track 17 on this.

Here's the link.

Tim Maloney: Shatner, etc

Animator who occasionally collaborates with Negativland.  Here's some cutups that reference the contemporary media stream.

"Shatner" roasts those late-nite TV 1-800 celebrity ads.  It's available on a collection of various artists of the same ilk, entitled Free Speech For Sale.

Violent Combat Robots looks at the sort of entertainment a military-industrial society uses to indoctrinate kids.

There's some other odds and ends at his website.
