AGK 2 post 1: Ben Robinson - Ghost Rider

Over the next few days, this 'ere blog will provide a comprehensive guide to last Saturday's Yuck 'n Yum AGK 2 event. The AGK is the Yuck 'n Yum annual general meeting, only the K stands for karaoke. Artists make their own karaoke videos and perform to them accordingly. As this is my blog, I'll nominate myself to go first.

I performed Suicide - Ghost Rider.

Alex Tobin and your correspondent as Martin Rev and Alan Vega

The song contemplates the existential poetics of proto-punk motorbiking. The video is a psychedelic videogame where real people get hurt.

The original Suicide performance:
