Hand me down that net will you? There is a preponderance of flying insects in here. Someone should shoot the bastards.

Henry Fonda in a comedy western I can't remember the name of, where he's trying to take a nap and a fly's buzzin' around. He takes out his 6-shooter and plugs the bastard and it falls down off the wall like, "Ah! Ya got me!" ;-D

No! No! Shit! I got it all wrong. First, it wasn't a comedy: Once Upon A Time In The West fer chrissakes. And B: It wasn't Henry Fonda(although he did throw us for a loop in that one, being the meanest bad guy ever) dammit, it was ol' Jack Elam!(see how I coulda thought comedy?) And he didn't shoot the fly. He just made us think he was going to, then captured it in his gun barrel and shook it around to amuse himself.

Ahh...too much acid in the old days, that's my plea. ;-)

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
