The Value Village People is a project of Bleek Swinney, now, with partner in crime Luke Meat. Bleek is a visual and sound artist, editor of Speck Fanzine, contributing writer of Discorder magazine, part-curator of 24 Hours of Radio Art, recovering US military veteran, unapologetic socialst, peacenik and host of Exquisite Corpse on CiTR, Vancouver. Bleek has a diploma in Radio Broadcasting from Clover Park Voc. Tech. in Tacoma, and an Associate of Arts degree from Northwest College of Art. The VVP use sound-recycling (hence “Value Village” ), elements of camp (hence “Village People”) and attempts to reveal the (un)fortunate complexities of this information through appropriation, cut-ups, murky noise and recontextualization.
