Simon O’ Corra trained as a theatre designer at the Mountview Academy, London in 1986 and 1987. This specialization, coupled with years within social and health care plus ongoing work as a gay activist and queer theorist has led to his current art practice. This work focuses on a socio-political slant, especially in relation to war and its horrific realities and the ways in which humans are able to transcend these realities of their everyday lives. There are paradoxes in O’ Corra’s work which juxtapose heinous events with joyful self-expression and rampant commercialism. More:
The early days of SEWAGE as a band, began as squatters at 3BC hanging out in Tompkins Square Park and involving themselves in the riots including the 1991 Riot. Sewage has performed multiple times in the celebrated New York City Cannabis (Pot) Parade with rocker David Peel; Onyx, and Cypress Hill (a popular Hip Hop act in 1992). On June 27th 1993, Sewage opened up the fatal final show of infamous scum rocker GG ALLIN. Sewage has performed at ABCnoRio (http://www.abcnorio.org) with Bambi as well as with the drunk punk band Public Nuisance. SEWAGE has performed at a number of squat shows even playing with the Casualties at the 13th Street Squat. The band lived in the squats and on the streets yet were not crusties or politically activists. Rather, the group's members fought street and bar fights, as well as challenging abusive authority in a time when gentrification was starting back when police were shutting down the neighborhood and evicting artists and musicians for purposes of development. Spike and Sewage were selected as the quintessential punk look and were included in the filming of the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame's documentary the History of Punk Rock, a permanent instalment at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where a photo of younger Spike stands in front of CBGBs in 1998. Sewage is a mainstay on the New York Tristate Punk and Punk Rock scene having performed live on Crucial Chaos WNYU radio a s well as a couple of Squat Pirate radio stations. SEWAGE has performed frequently at CBGB's with...More:

Emerging from Istanbul, Turkey in April, 2016 Hedonistic Noise is a PUNK ROCK BAND. Known for Noisy and aggressive sounds, the original and current line-up is: Orçun Özdemir (vocals, guitar), Emre Terzioğlu (bass), and Doğa Gürkan (drums, percussion). Silence Is More Musical: the immersive debut album titled was released on April 15, 2017. When it blasts through the Carpazine office speakers we literally return to our slam dancing mosh pit days. Silence Is More musically leans on the shorter side of things; outside of the final two tracks the other songs come in at under three minutes. Rick Wakeman eat your heart out. Gaining recognition, Hedonist Noise has been included in Istanbul Street Thrash Compilation on transparent green vinyl which was a limited printing of only 500 pieces. You can check it out from Prof Sny Records bandcamp page.More:

My art is motivated by curiosity. I feel an urge to respond to current global issues, reflect time and situations I find myself in. I am interested in subjects that are universally human: identity, sexuality, social status, religious, and political ideologies. Pencil has been the first art media that I chose to code my experiences; by using symbolism and surrealistically fluid-anthropomorphic figures. More:
