Singled Out: Shaka Ponk's How We Kill Stars

Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today Shaka Ponk tells us about "How We Kill Stars" from their new album "Bad Porn Movie Trax".

"How We Kill Stars" is about the reality TV injuries. How the music biz destroyed the star concept by creating fake plastic icons to sell fast. Some big label boss told us that trash TV saved his job. He said, "We can sell whatever we want if people saw it on TV." How a stupid girl for 3 weeks on trash TV program can become a star for the masses… Then all the communication process is done, we just have to make songs and we have our new fake plastic little Madonna…then tching tching! NO MORE « I love you so let's make love » BUT « we had sex so let's fall in love!!!! » God dam scary, no?

For the video we chose a band that is anti-reality-TV-star, a real authentic rock band, a legend: RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS and the famous video GIVE IT AWAY. The goal was to make a cheap cover of this video, using bad blinking effects, paint and stains to destroy it as the music biz destroys authenticity. They use kids to sell hope and then throw them away ("TRY me, Kill me"). Everything is "Biomechanic"- pure art mixes with business, what's real with what's fake as bio and meca…

Hearing (and seeing) is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, check out the video here or listen for yourself and learn more about the album and band - right here!
