The Fashion Sense and Social Consciousness of Atari Teenage Riot’s Nic Endo

Tim Gauthier

“As a musician, an icon of female empowerment and a visual force, Japanese-American electronic musician Nic Endo is in a class of her own. Currently tearing up global stages as the female head of Berlin-based digital hardcore group Atari Teenage Riot, she’s been a main player on the international electronic and noise scenes since the 90s. Aside from her innovations as a producer and performer, she’s earned praise as a social crusader who maintains the pioneering feminist spirit of riot grrrls, whom she says “must define the avant-garde” in music. She’s also the spokesmodel for British beauty brand Illamasqua’s new fragrance, Freak – and, like Illamasqua’s cosmetics, the fragrance revels in contrarian attitudes, celebrating nightime mischief and the notion of experimental personal transformations.”

Rolling Stone spoke with Endo as she tours across Europe and prepares for the release of Atari Teenage Riot’s new single, “The Collapse of History,” out January 23rd on Dim Mak.

Atari Teenage Riot “Black Flags” – First Occupy Movement Anthem

Tim Gauthier

Dangerous Minds dub the ATR current single “Black Flags” as the first Occupy Wall Street anthem. Read more…

The latest single from album ‘Is This Hyperreal?’, explodes as a political anthem declaring Atari Teenage Riots’ support for Anonymous’ human rights campaign. The viral videos for “Black Flags” exhibit several ardent visuals, such as monolithic black flags, anonymity and “corpsing”.

Atari Teenage Riot is featured in RCRD LBL’s “Halloween Thrillers” playlist.

Atari Teenage Riot is featured in RCRD LBL’s “Halloween Thrillers” playlist. The playlist is a free download here.

From RCRD LBL:

Chillers are well and good, but let’s face it: stopping at spooky is kind of weak. For me, Halloween is strictly about screams and sweat, straight up thrills, nightmarish parties, and sweet sweet (ear) candy. The louder, the weirder, the filthier, the better. Between witchy Purity remixes, Hussle Club dubstep, blinded-by-blood Atari Teenage Riot cries and Koralleven’s rave horsewhip skinning Britney Spears, our Halloween Thrillers playlist will prepare you for the darkest day of the year. And when it comes, you best dance ‘til you die.”

Atari Teenage Riot “Black Flags” – 2nd Video Edit Released!

Tim Gauthier

Fans are still submitting their videos for the Atari Teenage Riot viral video of the new single “Black Flags.” We now have the second version which includes cameo appearances by Steve Aoki and Boots Riley, along with more clips from Occupy Wallstreet, 99%, and a new exclusive message at the end from Anonymous.

Lets keep this movement going! Watch and forward to your colleagues and clients.

Message from Atari Teenage Riot:
“Atari Teenage Riot wants YOU to be in their viral video for “Black Flags.”

If you want to be in the video and show that you support the ideals mentioned above, please send us the following footage:

· Take your mobile phone, webcam or any other camera and film yourself lip-synching the song http://soundcloud.com/alec_empire/atari-teenage-riot-black-flags

· Have a black flag in the background, or hold it while you’re lip-syncing. (The black flag motif will link all images together. If you don’t have one to hand, use a black T-shirt, pull it inside out, stick the arms into it…there you go.)

· You can choose any location for it. If you want to do it at home, great. If you know a crazy location, do it there. (In front of your school or university? At a shopping mall? With your friends at a party?)

· We will use fragments of all videos, which are sent in and ultimately add all of you to the official video.

· If you want to support the idea but want to do so anonymously, you can cover your face. No problem.
