Well, we’ve lost another cultural taste maker. RIP, Glenn O’Brien. Among many other things, O’Brien was the original editor of Interview magazine, host of TV Party, and writer and producer of Downtown 81, which had a killer soundtrack featuring many of the bands on this retrotransmission playlist, which you can listen to live today from 4-6EST on 8ball radio.
This show is all about the New York No Wave scene. It features tracks from Lydia Lunch, Suicide, Judy Nylon, Lounge Lizards, Arto/Neto, Sonic Youth, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, James Chance and the Contortions, and Chance’s other project, James White and the Blacks, Rosa Yemen, Theoretical Girls, Mars, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, and more…
Here’s the playlist, for those of you who can’t tune in live: RT: NO WAVE.
8ball also archives all my live shows. You can check those out, here!
