Artist: DNA
Title: DNA on DNA
Format: CD
Label: No More
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"New Yorks seminal No Wave band, DNA, makes its highly anticipated American CD debut with this definitive collection of studio and live recordings. Surviving two line ups over a brief four years; this highly influential, strikingly original and extremely under recorded band left a huge void in its wake. Formed in 1978, Brazilian raised singer/guitarist Arto Lindsay hastily assembled an international trio of non-musicians. Robin Crutchfield played keyboard and Japanese-born Ikue Mori played drums. DNA played their first gig within weeks and recorded their first 7" shortly afterwards. The ear of Brian Eno was quickly caught, recording them for the infamous No New York compilation alongside James Chance, Mars, and Teenage Jesus & The Jerks. Before No New York was released, Robin left the band after a total tenure of nine months. Bassist Tim Wright had just left Pere Ubu, relocated to NY and quickly joined DNA. With a new face, a new instrument and a new sound, DNA recorded their classic nine minute EP A Taste Of DNA . DNA toured the States and Europe bringing their explosive live show to a wider audience. DNA only released 12 songs during its lifetime, and another 3 shortly afterwards on a european compilation. Their impact was far and wide reaching. Many musicians have sited DNA as a main influence including Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth and the band Blonde Redhead, who appropriated their name from a DNA song title. This CD compiles all of the studio and many choice live recordings. Of particular interest are the original lineups early versions of Detached, 5:30 and Low (which is closely related to A New Low.) The unreleased studio tracks Grapefruit, Police Chase and Young Teenagers Talk Sex are heard here for the first time as well as live versions of the unreleased songs Nearing and Surrender. Exclusive liner notes from Byron Coley, Jason Gross and Glenn OBrien pack the 16 page booklet alongside many unseen photos and flyers." - No More.

Artist: MARS
Title: Mars LP: The Complete Studio Recordings NYC 1977-1978
Format: CD
Label: No More
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The Mars LP is the definitive collection of the 32 minutes of studio recordings released between 1977 and 1979 on vinyl by the first of the no wave bands. Supervised by the surviving members, remastered from original sources without any added effects, and packaged with detailed notes and lyrics, the Mars LP is an effort to recuperate the groups legacy and make up for the unavailability of these tracks in their original sound." "Static transmissions from a distant dark star. Taking up and tripping out further than the Velvet Undergrounds Black Angel Death Song , Mars punished not with blunt force, but with a propulsive agitation which signaled a neurological insanity. A crippled tension swathed in nervous friction. A cavernous musical universe riddled with eerie sound storms whose poisoned atmosphere seduced and threatened. Obtuse and unforgiving. Sickly sexy. Red noise redefining bass urges, forcing the listener to question their own sanity by drilling into ear holes using electroshock guitars as saw blades trepanning into grey matter. Mars unleashed a choking cacophony illustrating the body as machine in disrepair fuelled by the impending repulsion and disintegration of a perverse romance with ones own demons. Demons who once wrenched free, made mimicry of the jangling nerve centers, and given voice as song, turned schizophrenic and howled these testimonials to the unbearable." -- Lydia Lunch. "[note: Mars LP is the title, but this is a CD only release]. Includes their first single on Rebel/Ze, the No New York tracks, the Mars EP on Lust/Unlust -- their complete discography. This CD should be considered as an alternative to the still-valid Mars 78+ CD on Atavistc -- this one features all the original recordings as intended, with all the Thirlwell sound reprocessing of the Atavistic CD eliminated." - FE.
