- Fuzzy Now Broadcasting TV
- Is an independent channel directed by Iván López Munuera. Present Day is a weird-blurring concept built by a number of troublemaking actors. We don't need TV-Shows to explain the controversies, agonic relationships and manifestos of today, but we want them!!! We want Fuzzy Now Broadcasting TV because revolution will not be televised but it could help us to get organized!!!

These few words provide us with a glimpse of the atmosphere Kim Gordon and her social environment were producing at that time. An environment formed by her fellow Sonic Youth, Harry Crews and Free Kitten band members; friends or collaborators, like the artists John Fahey, Mike Kelley, or Raymond Pettibon; and film-makers, like Todd Heynes or Spike Jonze. A social environment built out of components of different kinds: sensorial (their music), material (clothes, alternative spaces, and music venues), visual (album covers, video-clips, posters), symbolic (fanzines, art projects), or conceptual (articles, statements, or reviews in the media). Kim Gordon’s account of her personal experience provides opportunities to approach how the politics of Pop are performed by means of garage noise, eroticism, domestic interiors, T-shirt illustrations, or the death of the American Dream...
