Shock Battalion Radio show on KPFK (90.7 FM) Part 2
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
