Boomkat Product Review:
A bit of dissident rock history - two live recordings of legendary NY no-wavers DNA made on May 6th, 1978. They capture the quartet of Nancy Arlen, China Burg, Sumner Crane and Mark Cunningham from the perspective of two different microphone set-ups during the same performance alongside Teenage Jesus And The Jerks on the last night of a five day festival. Apparently nobody cared at the time, but the performance has since entered the halls of legend. It could be said that this LP documents the genesis of a short lived but catalytic scene whose revolutionary influence has created a long lasting impression in the forms of bands like Sonic Youth.
