Once Death Squad had completed the 1997 tour and The Pain Factoryhad ended, Michael began taking on more projects. In 1998 he started a brand-new public access TV show, Fuck TV, and a Europe / North America tour with Radiosonde and Chapter 23. Continuing into 1999, Death Squad would perform one of the most controversial pieces to date, Intent (aka The Gun Show), which was followed by Enacted Hostage Sequence. Michael finished off the millennium with a near death experience in Chicago. The conclusion of Death Squad was in 2000 with another international tour ending with Closing Statements in San Francisco.
This book follows the events and documentation from these final years. With extensive decades old ephemera saved and presented, there are handouts with blood stains, flyers from international shows and photographs taken by Michael and others. Key figures’ recollections are also included, adding their perspectives of all the events. Along with radio interviews, promotional recordings, unreleased tracks and more.
Contributions by: Scott Arford (Radiosonde), Lee M. Bartow (NTT, Theologian), J. Frede (Chapter 23), Russ Kent (KPFA, KFJC), Tomas Novak (Skrol) & Jason Quell (Quell). These artists share their first-hand accounts of performing and touring with Death Squad.
