Summary No Wave By Marc Masters Read & Download No Wave By Marc Masters ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Marc Masters ↠ 8 Read & Download No Wave traces the history of this noisy and uncompromising genre from its most famous names down to its many offshoots and sidetracks From early pioneers like Suicide and Richard Hell to forgotten treasures like Red Transistor and Bush Tetras and descendants like ESG and Sonic Youth No Wave charts all the cracks and crevices of a surprisingly diverse movementFlashing through the New York underground in the late 1970s No Wave was the ultimate anti movement Its bands consisted of artists and poets untrained in music looking to explode rock and disappear. This book has only confirmed that I was born about twenty years too late Marc Masters No Wave is a comprehensive account of the ephemeral post punk New York underground music and film scene of the late 70 searly 80 s The No Wave scene spawned the likes of Lydia Lunch James Chance Arto Lindsay Nick Zedd immortalized in Pulp Fiction when Bruce Willis uttered the words Zedd s dead baby Zedd s dead Jim Jarmusch John Lurie informed the aesthetics of the prolific Sonic Youth and propelled the acting careers of Steve Buscemi and Vincent Gallo No Wave music was characterized by a minimalist primitive sound and a nihilistic attitude one that differed from their punk forefathers in that individualism was treasured The same characteristics could be applied to a description of No Wave cinema Blah blah blah You can probably read a similar description on Wikipedia The first time I heard Lydia Lunch sing the Teenage Jesus and the Jerks song Less of Me was an epiphany Every cliche about growing up weird in the suburbs and finding something that spoke to that weirdness applies The sense of alienation I experienced was compounded by the fact that I managed to be a complete social pariah in my extremely small lower middle and high school ie my class had 12 people in it including me and the group hadn t changed since 7th grade Essentially I was an outcast in a school offor outcasts And that s kind of the crux of No Wave Take for instance a musician like James Chance who started out in Teenage Jesus and formed a bunch of other bands throughout his career most famously The Contortions a trained saxophone player and punk rock enthusiast he came to New York in the late 70 s from the Midwest to play jazz Informed by the two competing aesthetics he was unable to successfully assimilate in either scene as both demanded conformity into a distinct affectation Even punk which was characterized by a rejection of mainstream culture reuired observance of the traditional three chord rock and roll musical structure Chance sought to deconstruct the traditional musical configurations of jazz punk disco and funk thus creating a distinctive innovative and singular sound Weasel Walter probably best articulated the distinction between No Wave from Punk in the foreword it was something that truly screamed Fuck you all I don t want to be like you Punk said Fuck them We don t want to be like them This book doesn t just focus on the music It also discusses No Wave cinema which I was somewhat less familiar with prior to seeing the documentary Blank City and reading this Jim Jarmusch and John Waters are definitely the most well known filmmakers that this era generated as well as Nick Zedd to a lesser extent Fun fact the title character in John Waters Cecil B Demented is based on Nick Zedd OK it s not exactly a fact but it has been openly speculated by Zedd himself which is as good as factual This is an actual fact Nick Zedd has been banned from Canada because of his film War is Menstrual Envy DIG However the Cinema of Transgression and Zedd are but a mere footnote in No Wave One thing that struck me about the No Wave scene is the role of women and how gender seemed to be a non issue at least as portrayed by Blank City and by Marc Masters herein Contrast this with the male dominated punk scene that preceded No Wave and even the recent incarnations of punk in the 90s ie grunge riot grrl where being a woman in a punk band became a novelty or a political statement That s not to say that women dominated No Wave or were even represented in eual numbers because they weren t but they weren t marginalized or treated as an oddity on the basis of their sex at least as depicted in the references I ve just citedWhat I loved about this book in addition to the extensive information photos flyers album covers etc was the gossip Like this little tidbit Arto Lindsay on leaving an early incarnation of the Lounge Lizards I left when John wanted to make it John Lurie and the Lounge Lizards I wasn t really interested in playing in that situation While not really salacious per se it only adds to the picture of John Lurie I have in my head after researching him recently John Lurie is pathologically narcissistic After seeing Blank City a few months ago and seeing Lurie interviewed in the documentary I began to wonder what he had been up to A google search revealed that he has been on a self imposed exile from the island of Manhattan for the past few years because of the acrimonious dissolution of a friendship he held with his former mentee artist John Perry Exhibit A The New Yorker article depicts John Lurie as a man that is completely delusional paranoid and self obsessed To be fair I m also completely self obsessed but I would hope that I would have the good sense to try to mollify the manifestation of this tendency when being interviewed for a national publication like The New Yorker The whole situation is crazy And honestly after reading other interviews he s made on the subject after the publication of the article in The New Yorker as well as reading interviews and watching videos of John Perry cut me some slack I m unemployed and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future I have a lot free time John Lurie comes off as the reasonable one Sure Lurie has a deluded sense of self but it s that kind of self confidence that enabled him to become successful in several different artistic mediums Perry on the other hand is a disturbed individual On what planet would conducting a 19 day hunger strike outside the apartment building of the man that has accused you of stalking him prove that you are NOT in fact stalking him Exhibit B A word on nostalgia and then I ll wrap this up Nick Zedd on the production of Blank City I remember when nostalgia was the exclusive domain of old people This newfound appreciation for the past must be a recognition that our current era lacks authenticity Exhibit C His most mainstream musical contribution was the theme song to Late Night with Conan O Brien Wir Erben of this noisy and uncompromising genre from its most famous names down to its many Fashionable

Summary No Wave By Marc Masters Read & Download No Wave By Marc Masters ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Marc Masters ↠ 8 Read & Download Before the smoke cleared No Wave tells the fascinating story of this radical anarchic and hugely influential musical movementBest known for short songs and even shorter life spans No Wave bands fused disparate styles to fashion abrasive rhythmic songs that were completely original and utterly compelling The primary perpetrators – Lydia Lunch’s howling Teenage Jesus and the Jerks James Chance’s skeletal Contortions the dark noise groups Mars and DNA – all drew on primitivism performance art and the avant gardeThe book also delves into No Wave cin. I m most surprised at what a nicely designed package the book is not a single review I read mentioned that it s loaded with pictures flyers original record covers etc I ve read several books that cover the movement in part but 98% of these photos are brand new to me I think that Masters makes an excellent choice in focusing exclusivelypredominantly on the actual original four No New York bands each getting a bulky dedicated chapter rather than making a generic overview of the downtown scene of the era However I kept wanting him to give detail about the many surrounding sociocultural elements of NYC in that era that so heavily informed the No Wave and Downtown movements like in Jeff Chang s otherwise underwhelming Can t Stop Won t Stop but the included pictures of bombed out Alphabet City do the job on their own I guess I also appreciated the extra portions about Bush Tetras ESG Liuid Liuid Material even Swans and Sonic youth to put things into context but their inclusion also reminded me that the ultimate comprehensive Downtown 75 83 book has yet to be written But that s not what Masters book is meant to be and as a micro focus on the micro movement it s outstanding
