Info7"22nd September 2017

Prisons For Profit is the neighbour release of the full-length It's All True, a bite-sized preview of New York ensemble Object Collection's opera-in-suspension based on the live archives of iconic underground band Fugazi. Grounded upon the Live Archive series of the Washington DC outfit, composer Travis Just and writer/director Kara Feely's work uses only the incidental music, text and sounds, none of Fugazi's actual songs, to build a disorienting wall of voices, instruments and raw polemic.

Collected here are two tracks exclusive to this EP: “Prisons For Profit” and “Male Lame-Asses”, alongside the LP cut "What's The Problem".

Limited edition cherry red 7” vinyl with artwork featuring Henrik Beck's beautiful photography of the original stage production, and a 2-sided printed insert. Mastered and cut by by Josh Bonati.

Object Collection was founded in 2004 by writer/director Kara Feely and composer/musician Travis Just. Based in Brooklyn, the group operates within the intersecting practices of performance, experimental music and theater. They are concerned with simultaneity, complexity, and radicality, combining dense layers of text, notation, objects and processes. They work to give audiences unconventional viewing experiences through our merging of theatricality and pedestrian activity. Their works upset habitual notions of time, pace, progression and virtuosity. They value accumulation above cohesion.
