Editorial Reviews

Review

'The pictures that came from it are about a million times better than the majority of the music' Vice 'No Wave left behind fruitful seeds that contemporary artists continue to explore' Telegraph 'It unlocks the door to an over-stocked vault of musical treasures which may lead listeners to the discovery of fresh nuances in tunes they thought they already knew backwards' Record Collector 'Excellent and fascinating book' Art Rocker 'Featuring well-researched quotes from those that were there, this is pivotal reading for anyone who wants to see that there was more to New York in the late 70s than the Ramones, Television and Blondie.'Dazed 'Excellent' PlanB Featured in the Czech Review, Le Son Du Grisli, Magic May and L&Arte

The Best & most Vivid book about the Fabled No Wave scene of NYC in the Late seventies so far.

There are a Few other decent books, but this one is the Best.
Great Stories, Pictures, Opinions & Of Course Music!

Another "mystery" scene in the Varied history of Punk rock. Along with the Hollywood scene, NYC's No Wave scene was an insular one. With it's own bands, stars, films TV, & Press. It rose from the Burned out streets of Downtown Manhattan. Original musical Ideas Thrust upon a world, not even asking for it!

From the Pre-Punk rumblings of Suicide, throughout the ZE & Lust/Unlust record labels No Magazine years. James Chance, Anya Phillips, Lydia Lunch, Amos Poe, Beth B, Glenn Branca, Pat Place & More all survived & Maybe even Thrived! They did it their way!

This Book captures the scene in Great Photos, info, & graphics. You may have Missed out on it in it's original time, but you could still be Inspired by this book, to do your Own thing. And Of course, not just aping those Great sights & sounds. Lydia Lunch will come After ya!

A good add on to the Moore/Coley no wave book and this has COLOR photos too! Another volume on the old NYC post-punk scene that not enough can be written about in my opinion. In fact, some of this is more fun to read about than to listen too. Now all we need are books about MX 80 Sound and Pere Ubu (with a full history going back to 1974) and the world will be perfect!!
