DON JOYCE: We'll Be Right Back
OUT OF PRINT
Originally released in 1996 as a limited edition CD of 1000 hand numbered copies by Amsterdam’s Staalplaat label, this 36-minute CD is long out of print, soon to be available in download form. Composed entirely of source material recorded during World War II, WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK is a Don Joyce solo composition made shortly after the 1991-1995 Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian War in Eastern Europe, during which America was saturated with daily TV news images of the war, the atrocities, and the concentration camps full of skeletal inmates, all between commercials. The similarity of those war images on TV to images we are all familiar with from World War II was unmistakable, and inspired this reminiscence of those "never again" days and their connection with this horrifying reappearance at the end of the last century. The title refers both to that and to every announcer’s catch phrase preceding a commercial as "We’ll Be Right Back" contrasts World War II documentary material with World War II era radio commercials. WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK is a provocative clash of epic history and the trivia that accompanied it, reminding us that such clashes of ironic simultaneity are forever with us.
