'The more one takes in the work with regard to its historical contextualization, the more broader ideas percolate and bubble to the surface of consciousness...Like the so-called evidence that forms its basis ‘Fail Deadly’ with its small but carefully curated selection of pieces raises more questions than it answers but that in itself is part of its appeal and intellectual reward. It provides an elegant demonstration of the cliché that sometimes less is more, more or less. It doesn’t tell you what happened in the middle of the ocean at the edge of the world in September 1979 but it certainly shows you that something did.
