No Wave Contest at Warped Reality [08 Jun 2008|11:44am]


Warped Reality Magazine: No Wave Contest
Enter to win a copy of the new book by
Thurston Moore and Byron Coley

Thurston Moore and Byron Coley have just released NO WAVE [Abrams Image], a widescreen visual chronicle of NYC's downtown experimental music scene circa 1976-1980. The book brings the era to vivid life, through a great mix of visuals —from club flyers to posed portraits and candids taken in skuzzy clubs and on crumbling tenement rooftops. Thrumming with the same kind of vibrant, often confrontational energy as the music itself, the books paints a wonderfully complete portrait of a movement that happened to be an anti-movement, "a wave that didn't ride in on a wave," to paraphrase Dark Day's Robin Crutchfield. 
To celebrate, Warped Reality has two signed copies of the book to give away. 
The prize drawing will be on Friday, June 13, just in time for the book release party in NYC. (Fittingly, the Friday the 13th release party will also mark the one-time only reunion of Teenage Jesus & the Jerks, Lydia Lunch's merry band of enfants terribles. Rumor has it that Mr. Moore himself will step in to complete the lineup.)
All you have to do to enter the contest is answer the following question:
Which former member of Sonic Youth ended up doing performance art (among other things) at legendary NYC performance space the Kitchen?
To enter, send your answer to: warpedrealitymagazine(at)gmail.com. And don't forget to leave your address so we can contact you if you win.

Check Warped Reality often throughout the upcoming week for a slew of No Wave rarities, even rarer visuals, and interviews from the archives, culminating on June 13th with an interview with Byron Coley.

"Hi-fi, lo-fi, no-fi and everything in-between."

lookin' for recs [23 Apr 2007|02:58am]

I've been a big fan of Robin Crutchfield's work for quite some time and just a couple of months ago got around to really catching up with his other post-DNA stuff, primarily Dark Day. shit be tight. any of you got any similar artists you could recommend me with?

while I'm on the synth subject, if you're familiar with H2D's homework comps you've probably heard Radio Free Europe's track "Alien Day" (it's no. 1 on 1½). anyone knows if they released any other stuff? 7"s I could track down or that have maybe been put on some blog online? google searches have not been prolific so far.

in case you never heard the track, you can grab it here : http://www.sendspace.com/file/l29rn3

tnx in advance.


Disjunct video painting DVD [01 Feb 2007|10:48am]


Impartial Analysis

Disjunct presents eight videos, twelve audio tracks, and forty combinations thereof: wander through video paintings adjusted and confronted by the imposition of sounds consciously altering the meaning to be gleaned from these luscious loops. Each audio track is identified by a prefix or suffix, left or right audio, while each video is identified by a root. Each of thirty-two words presents a distinct eye on subtle shifts created through association. Perfect for studied contemplation or the transformation of a dull unused televison or monitor into a dynamic painting, Disjunct presents a transcendent and transitory object to transform your world.

Impartial Analysis, the first DVD of video paintings by Disjunct is now available to sample and purchase online at

UT Contest! [24 Jul 2006|09:07pm]


I'm running a contest over at Warped Reality. I have two sets of the UT reissues [In Gut's House & Griller] to give away. Whee! Free stuff!

Ut was an amazing band, and I hope this reissue series introduces them to a whole new audience weaned on bands like Sonic Youth, who always claimed they were constantly playing catch-up with Ut in the early days. (One of Ut's first-ever proper releases was on the 1981 Thurston Moore-curated Noise Fest cassette.)

LINK: Ut Contest here.

Contest is open from now until August 1st!


New UT interview Online [16 Jun 2006|11:47pm]


I interviewed the band UT for an article I wrote some months ago for The Providence Phoenix.

In the intervening months we've kept the conversation going. In light of Mute's upcoming re-issues of Ut's Blast First albums In Gut's House and Griller we decided to post it all online, complete with rarities hand-picked by the band.

Part One is here. There are three parts all told, with the second to follow early next week.

(In case you're wondering, UT was a female-led, pioneering power trio that began in NYC in 1978. Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore has named them as inspirations. He even put out early Ut music on the Noise Fest cassette [1981]. After relocating to London, the band eventually signed to Sonic Youth's UK label, Blast First. )
