image1-3.JPG

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!

This vintage playlist, from winter 2013, compiles the 60s and 70s psychedelic, experimental, rock, and garage roots of retrotransmission, much like Lenny Kaye’s Nuggets series documented garage’s influence on punk. The bands on this playlist, such as The Sonics, The Who, ? and the Mysterians, Captain Beefheart. CAN, and Hawkwind, etc. largely influenced people such as Patti Smith, Alan Vega and Martin Rev, and Genesis P-Orridge, respectively,  to make some of the most innovative and influential sounds of the 70s and 80s.
