by the archivists

the archivists are a band that existed in the unseasonably hot summer and autumn of 2005, in chicago. one record called ‘paper show’ was recorded on an 8 track reel to reel with dirty tape. this song, the last track, overdrives and statics and represents the energetic and totally chaotic trainwreck that was the archivists. the image is a collage from the one live show played, at the subterranean in chicago, for the tense forms second annual summer art and music showcase. enlarge the image.
