God Is My Co-Pilot
The Punk abandon and downtown errantry of Sharon Topper and Craig Flanagin's constantly evolving and mutating God is My Co-Pilot project is as diverse and erratic as music can be. Their art is an extension of their radical queer/feminist/post-colonial politics, not merely by lyrical subject, but extending into an anti-aesthetic that turns hegemonic music production on its head by ignoring boundaries of difference, generating sound from collective libidinal desire rather than an applied manifesto. The band's changing members and interests fuse approaches as disparate as Techno, Thrash, Klezmer and Free Jazz together as if they weren't so dissimilar after all. Form and function are hand in hand like two raised fists.
