Even at the age of four, when his uncle was shot dead in Belfast, Matt was astute enough to distrust what he was being told by the media about his family’s tragedy. The newspapers said he’d died in an IRA ambush but Matt took care to note that no one was ever arrested and IRA involvement was never properly established. The impact on the boy grew more profound as he got older; by the time he was 10 he was asking questions about it but nobody knew any answers — for the rest of his life he would distrust society and its organisations, forever questioning the validity of what the newspapers were telling him.

Here are the contents of the boxset. The hardcover book for the CD and DVD is beautiful. I tried to take decent photos of each page, and the liquid crystal thermal reactive lid is a bitch to take a photo of, it’s pretty cold here so the print disappears too quickly. But it’s fun to play with! And of course the 3 prints are nice. I hardly want to touch them though in case of fingerprints!
