Neg-Fi is selling Neg-Fi Lp's, cdrs, cassettes, t-shirts (and other treats!), and also the fabulous UK imported "fresh pleasures" 7" by plug (which has recently been on WNYU and WFMU). "In the '50s, a time of postwar optimism and faith in science, there was Hi-Fi. In the '90s, an era of slackers and diminished expectations, there was Lo-Fi. In the '00s, a time of neanderthal government and outright contempt for the arts, there is Neg-Fi. A watershed moment in the history of art and music--some might say sub-nadir..." - Tom Moody

For the uninitiated, Chris was also in Information, Mofungo, and The Scene is Now.
