Lumpy Banger was recorded at the Experimental Television Center, in Owego, in a single session in June 1985. Lumpy Banger was a nickname, it had been with me for a while when I was young. I hadn’t thought about it for a long time, and though I never planned to use the name, upon finishing this piece I couldn’t resist.
Lumpy Banger displays the joy and excitement of penetration, though at the same time it reveals frustration and rage. It is meant to be playful in its combination of emotions and is a graphic symbol for a side of life. At 1:04 minutes LB was cut extrremely tight. Especially since the range of material from this session was rich. Later I made a 10 minute cut of this series that was used in the installation/ video object with the same name.
