♫♪  Dean Blunt - “WAR REPORT”

Last night in NYC, Dean Blunt staged a brief performance called “WAR REPORT” at the Off Vendome gallery space. Today, Sex Magazine premiered a video of the performance. In it, a man dressed in blue military fatigues (not Dean Blunt, notably) sits at a table enveloped in fog and reads a script/text written by Blunt, with battlefield sounds distantly playing in the background. Like Black Metal (the PDF), “War Report” is a monologue of sorts that’s both direct and of extremely uncertain and shifting origin/voice… some of it seems linked to Blunt’s thoughts on cultural assimilation that he’s given in interviews, other bits seem cribbed from the muddy self-worth philosophizing of someone like Popa Wu… but things are obviously being said here, and they’re being said to whoever is showing up for a Dean Blunt performance in NYC on February 12, 2015.
