(excerpt from an old skateboard advertising, about Ed Templeton's new pro model deck from New Deal. i just found again this while cleaning out my old "printings/substance for creative fooding" archives, and i remember that at the time this ad was done, i was almost shocked to see such a strange ad ; note that it was untranslated, the text was in its original form in english in a french magazine...)
OSOSPHERE FESTIVAL - STRASBOURG - SEPTEMBER 27 & 28.
Well, it's ain't this often : there's such an attractive line-up for this year's edition of the Ososphere festival in Strasbourg. Among others, the like of Gotan Project, Avril, Scan X, Laurent Garnier, Télépopmusik, dj Vadim, Sayagg Jazz Machine, le Peuple de l'Herbe, Smith & Mighty, Doctor L, Andrea Parker, Soul Designer, Curtis, Ezekiel, Lee Scratch Perry, Alec Empire, dj Joshua, Tarwater, Programme, Cosmo Vitelli, Nills Peter Molvaer, dj Cam, UHT, Black Sifichi, Kid Loco, Swayzak, David Carreta, the Hacker...
techno, hip hop, dub, nu-jazz... many interesting artists, a lot of real bullshit too, but it's rare enough to see such people around, so i gotta admit that it's something good : "it's something good !". Done.
