"Burp # 15 is our second issue in the 21st century and our first ever to be presented in the English language. We call this the black white and grey issue. Because it is. We at Burp Enterprise have always been interested in big cities and vertical elevation. A deep, bitter contempt for horizontality and quaint rustic villages (the loathed country pub! the hated roadside antique store! the abhorred charming town square!) has always characterized our work, both as visual artists and musicians. And although our position made things especially hard for us in decades past — we constantly had to fight the opposition of horizontally-prone critics (how we despised them!) and assorted nostalgia-oriented nature-loving freaks — We feel that through the years we continued to revisit and develop our favorite topics.
Just flip through the pages of this issue and you’ll see what We’re talking about: the fateful flight of Harducii the Neanderthal in his life capsule in the mini space drama INDUSTRY by Daniele Murtas’s (our newest addition to the BURP roster); the heartbreaking upward trajectory of the discarded young boy propelled by OTTO IL PENNUTO’s powerful kick in the original version of the notorious opus by Gianni Agus; the allure of the burning metropolis in Mat Pogo’s FIRE; and the mad flight of human waste rising into the stratosphere in Nikt Notoni’s EAT!.
Because when you have set fire to the foyer of your 455-floor building the only direction left to go is UP!
Back in the old days some said we were young upstarts, provincial eavesdroppers or simply, just stoned-out juvenile delinquents with loud electric clarinets and motor bikes looking for a few easy bucks. But here we still stand and where are THEY now? Most of them are building natural families, that’s where they are. So it’s with great pleasure that we present to you this latest addition to the BURP series. We feel, and We’re sure you’ll agree, that it’s our strongest issue yet."
