TGIF for "Gimme the Mermaid"

This You Tube piece was reportedly commissioned by the experimental sound collage group Negativland for the video compilation, "Our Favorite Things," soon to be released. The track had been cut by Negativland several years before, an audio document of their problems with copyright/trademark issues concerning their U2 record incident. Negativland is an experimental music and sound collage band which originated in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 19702.

Good God, I'd never thought I would see the day that Negativland would be showcased on a legal site (I was a big fan of theirs in the '80s)! I actually have an original CD of their U2 EP that caused the entire uproar (If you've ever heard it, it is funny as hell). Unfortunately, since I entered the legal profession, I haven't run into anyone else that has listened to Negativland, let alone even heard of them . . .

Keep up the good work!
