about

"Well, everyone's doing mash-ups now. Sure, when she started, Buttress O'Kneel was a pioneer, a brave audio warrior hacking deep furrows in the copyright-jungle, reclaiming cultural spaces in an over-corporatised landscape taken over with fences and fortresses; and yes, back in the day, she was an inspiration, a demi-goddess, a vibrant subcultural force to be reckoned with, blazing a path for others to follow. I mean, sheesh, the word "mash-up" didn't even exist back then. But now? Who cares about more mash-ups, more plunderphonics, more try-hard remedia detournmentology? This shit is old, real old. Been there, done that. People have moved on. Get with the times, girlfriend - no-one is interested. Go arrange all the words in Star Wars in alphabetical order, or something- oh, that's already been done too? So go and play 100 copies of the White Album all at once- no? That's been done as well? Well, looks like there's nothing left for you, Ms O'Kneel. Go home. It's past your bedtime, culturally-speaking. It's all been done, and better, and bigger, and brighter, and more cleverly. You were okay, I guess. But relevant? Please! Your time in the sun was nice while it lasted, but it's long gone. Forget about it. Sleep. Sleep! Good night. Sleep tight!"

about

Buttress O'Kneel Australia

“Words like "mashup" and "remix" don't really do justice to Buttress O'Kneel's method - Top 40 pop crap gets sliced, diced, and tossed into a dizzying, exciting hardcore electro stew. Compared to other djs who timidly drop a Vanilla Ice acapella over a Chemical Bros intro just to move a dance floor, O'Kneel shreds copyrights with a blood-curdling vehemence. Smash the state!”
