Throughout music history there have been countless talented bands from the New York scene. One of the most extraordinary periods is the No Wave. Beginning in the late 70's, most people labeled this style as 'unlistenable'. Kill Your Idols explores the No Wave, focusing on bands and musicians, old and new, like DNA, Suicide, Foetus, Sonic Youth, Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Liars, with their comments, thoughts and musical values..

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
