Event Description

What started out as surreptitious tape recordings of two drunk men screaming, hitting and generally abusing each other became passed around underground cassette tapes that inspired CDs, comic artworks, stage plays, pop music and a Hollywood script war. Despite their popularity in the outside world, Peter Haskett and Raymond Huffman – the unwitting subjects – were not aware they had become a “viral” pop-culture sensation. The past unfolds as their punk neighbors Eddie and Mitchell retell their story from 20 years ago of how they began recording Peter and Raymond’s horrifying, yet oddly catchy dialogue. Ultimately, SHUT UP LITTLE MAN! AN AUDIO MISADVENTURE examines the boundaries of privacy, art and exploitation as they slowly fade away.
