Artist: PINK SECTION
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Named after San Francisco Chronicles pink-hued arts and entertainment guide, Pink Section coalesced at SF Art Institute and performed their first show at the legendary Deaf Club on Valentines Day, 1979. These self-taught musicians existed on the fringe (even in the local underground scene), producing an unusual brand of off-kilter post-punk against a backdrop of Dadaist aesthetics. The group itself was strangely symmetrical: singer Judy Gittelsohn and drummer Carol Detweiler (both members of Inflatable Boy Clams), singer/guitarist Matt Heckert (Survival Research Laboratories) and bassist Stephen Wymore. While the hallucinatory layers of male/female vocals on "Shopping" conjure images of deranged domesticity and 50s Americana gone haywire, the fractured riffs of "Midsummer New York" deconstruct Yoko Onos original even further, stripping bare Pink Sections fondness for angular rhythms and out-of-control oscillations. This first-time retrospective LP collects the bands rare 1979 single, the self-titled EP, unreleased demos, and live material. Recommended for fans of Suburban Lawns, Units, and DEVO." - Superior Viaduct.
