    Coca has been, ancestrally, a sacred leaf. We, the indigenous, have had a profound respect toward it... a respect that includes that we don't "pisar" it (the verb "pisar" means to treat the leaves with a chemical substance, one of the first steps in the production of cocaine). In general, we only use it to acullicar: We chew it during times of war, during ritual ceremonies to salute Mother Earth (the Pachamama) or Father Sun or other Aymara divinities, like the hills. Thus, as an indigenous nation, we have never prostituted Mama Coca or done anything artificial to it because it is a mother. It is the occidentals who have prostituted it. It is they who made it into a drug. This doesn't mean that we don't understand the issue. We know that this plague threatens all of humanity and, from that perspective, we believe that those who have prostituted the coca have to be punished. - former Bolivian guerrilla leader and presidential candidate Felipe Quispe 2002 via Rigorous Intuition (link)

Bloody Angle (1990) Bob Davis with Naut Humon. On 5 May 1864 Generals Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant commenced a bloody and relentless struggle that would finally end eleven moths later at Appomattox Court House. The climactic point was reached on 12 May at the Bloody Angle, where the longest sustained hand-to-hand combat in recorded history was fought. In 1989 the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park sponsored a series of lectures, tours, and symposia in commemoration of the battle. Naut Humon, leader of the industrial culture band Rhythm and Noise, attended and recorded these events. With sound designer Bob Davis, he created an astounding, larger-than-life acoustic spectacle that echoes the inhuman mania of war. Commissioned by NEW AMERICAN RADIO.
