This Dual-Layer DVD contains an amazing 4 hours from The Disinformation Company's massive counterculture event in New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom. Highlights from the now legendary Disinfo.Con event include appearances by Robert Anton Wilson, Marilyn Manson, Joe Coleman, Kenneth Anger, Grant Morrison and many more.
New York hadn't seen anything like this since the Nova Convention in 1978 which saw Frank Zappa, Patti Smith and others anoint William Burroughs as king of the counterculture. A quarter century later Disinformation's keynote speakers Richard Metzger and Doug Rushkoff ushered in a dizzying, day-long array of performances ranging from sword-swallowing to sanskrit chanting, interspersed with lectures and conversations with counterculture luminaries like industrial music progenitor Genesis P-Orridge, Mondo 2000 founder R.U. Sirius, theorists, performance artists and others.

How far do you have to go to go too far for television? Disinformation found out with its own television show on the UK's Channel 4 TV Network. DisinfoTV on DVD, hosted by Disinformation co-founder Richard Metzger, is a show that acts like a television newsmagazine on speed, filled with enough counter culture propaganda, that according to Wired magazine, "makes Jackass look tame." The show challenged Channel 4's censors when it originally aired and resulted in the network refusing to broadcast certain segments. What did make it into people's homes became an instant classic of the weird and unusual, and the series was a hit. Eventually bought by the Sci-Fi Channel for the United States, it was considered to controversial and never aired in America. In this DVD, you'll see everything as it was intended–including the banned segments.
Ninja and Yo-Landi of Die Antwoord sat down with Xeni Jardin of BoingBoing**** for an interview just after the South African "rap-rave" band's first-ever US performance at the Coachella music festival. The duo spoke about their explosive, internet-fueled burst to fame, and about the origins of their "car crash music" (it's disturbing, but you can't look away) by way of District 9 and an anarchic internet and music subculture in post-Apartheid South Africa.
We're told this was the only interview Die Antwoord granted during their US visit. The conversation originally streamed live as part of the Los Angeles Times / Brand X Magazine Coachella Oasis Webcast.
