We thank you all for making classwar karaoke so damned fine!
Special cheers to Ad, who spent all last night wrestling with glitchy old myspace, uploading the films numerous times. He's a hero!
Enjoy and very best wishes!

ABOUT CLASSWAR KARAOKE:
classwar karaoke is a netlabel, originated and operated by myself, Anthony Donovan, from March 2008 until August 2009, and now operated by myself and Adrian Beentjes.
As a project, classwar karaoke is based around a series of ongoing, quarterly surveys, the first of which, dubbed '0001 survey', was released in May 2008. Each survey is different - in terms of personnel, number of personnel, and in terms of theme. Participation is fairly open - so long as those interested in being involved work intelligently within the broad context of experimental music and do not seek to use the project as just another on-line shop-window for their material. So far, the inclusive nature of classwar karaoke has worked wonderfully-well in terms of quality of material. See and hear for yourself by checking out our internet archive pages. Indeed, the label itself was envisaged, from the very start, as an experiment in the positive power which inclusivity can have upon artworking if included in meaningful ways. That said, we reserve the right to maintain the quality of both the art which is offered and the community from which it comes.
