Everything changed for the pranksters of the Los Angeles Cacophony Society (into "Art, Exploration and Subversion of the Secular Norm") after two members died in a car crash returning from a society Halloween event. Or did they? Christopher Noxon, who wrote the piece about Mel Gibson's film The Passion in a recent issue of The New York Times Magazine, writes about the society's new direction in the sixth issue of Arthur magazine. One of the group's webpages notes:
Or has it? Always hard to tell with the Cacophonists. Noxon's story is here. Arthur is edited in Los Angeles by Jay Babcock and circulates nationally (it comes out bimonthly). For the cover story this issue, longtime L.A. music writer Kristine McKenna talks with Iggy Pop. There is a publication party tonight in New York and a benefit screening of The Weather Underground at the Nuart Theatre in West L.A. next Tuesday.
