UK Air Guitar Championships


"The Purpose of the Air Guitar World Championships is to promote world peace. According to the ideology of the Air Guitar, wars would end and all the bad things would disappear, if all the people in the world played the Air Guitar. This is why the whole universe is invited to play the Air Guitar at the end of the competition..."
''...As the only activity on stage that takes place without rehearsal, props, a voice or anything but the soul borne to the baying crowd, it is the one true test of man. And as the legend has it, a time will come when all will put down the cell-phones which burden them and the weapons that burden others, and pick up their Air Guitars together as one, and a new civilisation will be formed."You can steal our mobile phones, our cars and the shoes on our feet, but you cannot steal something that is invisible."


Yay! How can anyone resist? \o/ \o/ \o/
Friday 1st September 7pm Carling Academy, Islington.

its not about any boycott - i could care less - i guess its the fact that there is such a corporate face to it now - and the way its been handled is really ridiculous. i think the most important difference is that the audience, in the UK / brighton rules, determines the winner. and the person gets to do anything they like on stage for as much or as little of a song they like [instead of 60 seconds no more no less and judged by 2 or 3 men - ] - in a way - uk air guitar has always been about chaos, fun and above all stupidity; this version is a steamroller and lucky for me i can't be copied, sold out or commercialised.

ps - lone demonstrations rock!
