Aa (BIG A little a)

Posted in Spotlight by unartignyc on 2009/10/16

(((unartig))) regulars are probably more than familiar with Aa (BIG A little a) by now. Excerpts of their song “Thirteen” appear during almost all our clips’ intro- and outro credits. It has little to do with the band’s generosity of letting us use their music for free that there’s tons of (((unartig))) recorded Aa footage to share with you all, but more to do with the fact that Aa is one of the most mesmerizing New York City powerhouses around. Over the course of the last four years I have attended over a dozen of their shows and captured most of them. Below is an overview of said material and words by Christopher R. Weingarten, writer for Rolling Stone, Spin, The Source, The Village Voice, author of the book “Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back” and former drummer for Parts & Labor. A song index is located at the end of the feature.

Zs

Brooklyn based Zs have always been one of my favorites bands to shoot since I moved to New York City. They are an inspiration to use cameras in a way one would have never thought about before. Below is  a variety of  Zs shows (((unartig))) managed to document on tape,  as well as an introduction by the great Hank Shteamer of STATS, Stay Fucked and Aa (BIG A little a) fame. Zs recordings are available via The Social Registry.
