about

Once described by the New York Times as "a scattered collection of anarchists and antigentrification militants," Missing Foundation bloomed in the late eighties Lower East Side amid the Koch-era rapid gentrification of the neighborhood. Industiral and performance art pioneers, Missing Foundation, led by Peter Missing, made a name for themselves sowing political and social dissent through infamous confrontational and disruptive live activities across the city. Notorious for inciting civil unrest and serious damage to venues at which they performed, Missing Foundation's live actions are the stuff of New York legend, like rolling lit oil barrels doused in kerosene into the audience at CBGB's, or most famously, The Tompkins Square Park Riot of 1988, when one of their protest concerts turned violent.

After releasing a total of five albums, the group disbanded following 1992's "Go Into Exile". Baked is proud to drop "World In Chains," their first official work since.

Very little has changed socially since Missing Foundation's calls for unrest sparked the tinderbox of Manhattan. Gentrification has snowballed its consumption and commodification of New York, with the staggeringly disparate divide between her citizens escalating rapidly day by day. So it makes sense that with this backdrop, Missing and co. have reemerged from the shadows to dispense with the formalities and let us know "The Party's Over."
