Abu Ghraib plays St. Stupid's Day 4/1/08
An offshoot of San Francisco's Devo-inspired
act, Mongoloid, Abu Ghraib consists of five Iraqi
detainees "forced" by their handlers, the Desert Foxes, to
perform pro-American Death Metal rants and other acts of
humiliation. Wearing not a thread more than their
counterparts in U.S. run Iraqi prisons, the detainees will
be expected to form human pyramids during guitar solos,
eat their share of Christmas ham and other "abominations"
against their faith. Supervising this performance are the
Desert Foxes, six of the U.S. Army's finest, decked out in
the tightest and skimpiest desert camo ever issued.
Throughout the show attendees will be invited to hand off
their cell phone cameras to the Foxes and strike the
iconic Lynndie England pose with the band for
a keepsake of this historic event celebrating our triumph
over the forces of darkness.
One of the aims of the performance is to defuse fascism
through art, making the obscene seen, reviling the vile. The
event’s creator is Loid Mongoloid.
