CLUB FOOT 30th Anniversary
CLUB FOOT was the collaborative brain child of several creatively starved individuals recently arrived in San Francisco from the East coast (August78') who were searching
for a new kind of public venue with which to promote their eclectic mix of socio-political critique, art performance, degenerate/ avant/jazz/pop musical influences,
and personal aesthetic. Originally conceived by Richard Kelly and JC Garrett along with Richard Edson they were soon joined by Cindy Buff and Kippy Robinson
in establishing a cabaret w/rehearsal studio and record label attached. The art/music/performance group the ALTERBOYS became the ad hoc house band.

Subterranean Records has repressed a special limited edition of the Club Foot LP
including Club Foot Orchestra, Longshoremen, Bay of Pigs, Alterboys

In just a few hours on the night of March 10, 1945, about 100,000 people died and a million homes were destroyed.
The down-town working class area was the target and 'those wood and paper homes consumed in just a few minutes.

The Century of the Self, Part 01: Happiness Machines -By Adam Curtis (2002)
Edward Bernays, Freud's american nephew, showed to American corporations
how they could make people want things they didn't need by linking mass-produced goods
to their unconcious desires. each part: 58' >via internet archive
The Century of the Self, Part 02: The Engineering of Consent This is the story of how Zigmung Freud's ideas about the uncouncious mind,
was use by those in power in post-war America to try controll and manipulate the masses...
The Century of The Self, Part 03: There is a Policeman Inside All Our Heads: He Must Be Destroyed In the 1960s, a radical group of psychotherapists challenged the influence of Freudian ideas in America.
Out of this came a political movement that sought to create new beings free of the psychological conformity.
This rapidly developed into the irresistible rise of the expressive self: the Me Generation.
But the American corporations and politics soon realised that this new self was not a threat but their greatest opportunity...
The Century of The Self, Part 04: Eight People Sipping Wine in Kettering This final episode explains how politicians on the left, in both Britain with Tony Blair and America with Bill Clinton,
used the focus group, which had been invented by psychoanalysts, in order to regain power.
They set out to mould their policies to people's inner desires and feelings, just as capitalism had learnt to do with products.
What they didn't realise was that the aim of those who had originally created these techniques had not been to liberate the people
but to develop a new way of controlling them.
