Shock Battalion Radio show on KPFK (90.7 FM)
SHOCK BATTALION was a controversial activist artist collective founded in the
summer of 1982 by Los Angeles based visual artist  Mark Vallen. Born of the
desire to confront the tidal wave of conservatism sweeping the United States,
Shock Battalion placed itself at the vanguard of cultural resistance to the so-called
Reagan "revolution." In the seven years of its existence, the Battalion produced
dozens of beautiful silkscreen street posters and offset litho flyers, performed two
multi-media anti-war slide shows, acted out provocative guerrilla street theatre,
produced a monthly radio show on KPFK (L.A's Pacifica Station), and mounted an
important international anti-war art exhibition held during the Los Angeles 1984
