Acid Brass

Syncopated Music art project.

Acid Brass was a musical collaboration between Turner-Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller and the WilliamsFaireyBrass Band. The project was based on fusing the music of a traditional Brass Band with Acid House and Detroit techno. Acid Brass began in 1997 as a collaboration between Deller, the Stockport-based Fairey Brass Band and Rodney Newton who created all the brass arrangements. Deller saw a connection between the two apparently disparate genres, viewing them as "two authentic forms of Folk Art rooted in specific communities". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acid_Brass

Video (really just audio + still) of them playing KLF's What Time Is Love?
