Knives, Space Monkeys and Noise. “A Purge Of Dissidents” is an odd one. A collaboration between fine-artist Dalek and HAZE XXL (Tom Hazelmyer), former muckity-muck of the infamous 90's underground noise terrorists Amphetamine Reptile Records. Both players delve into new creative turf with this project, which combines eye-bending animation and a soundtrack that is the antithesis of typical new age art-house fodder. Dalek (aka James Marshall) got his start as an NYC graffiti artist, and has spent the past decade filling gallery walls worldwide. (One of those galleries has been Minneapolis arts-collective/gallery space OX-OP not coincidentally run by HAZE XXL.) Hazelmyer earned his chops through the 80'/90's as guitarist/songwriter for Halo Of Flies, more known for their influential blistering assault than for instrumental soundscapes. Working as a team, this joint venture culminated in 10 animation pieces that debuted in Paris as part of an installation at Galleries Magda Danysz.
