Artist: AIRPORT WAR
Title: In Dreams Begin Responsibilities
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Airport War
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"This latest LP from Airport War is 12 inches of guilt-by-association (or rather the bastard child between Delmore Schwartz, pornography, the Moor Murders, Raymond Pettibon, Sonic Youth, and Patty Hearst). All represented in either, title, image, or sound, they demonstrate the collapse between audience and performer⿿with the record being the rate of exchange. Version/inversion (a figure 8), this piece of plastic is the intersection that connects Airport War to his audience and himself to his art⿿a meditation on medium. In Dreams Begins Responsibilities features a single loop of Patty Hearts long lost phone call from the closet to her parents⿿the first call after her kidnapping by the SLA. The call was originally recorded on tape and then played over the phone and then transferred to tape for the world to hear⿿a performance distributed via news networks throughout the world to millions of people (had it been sold/itd have gone gold in seconds). Specifically, the loop contains the first four words: Mom, Dad, Im okay. The last two words "Im okay" repeat into infinity or until the listener grows tired, the record wears out or the player breaks down. The record comes in two version (limited to 50 of each), with the sole difference being the inversion of the two color silkscreen process⿿one with red overlay and one with blue overlay. Silkscreen ink was applied directly to the record. Hand Signed/Numbered." - Airport War Records
