If you’re interested in No Wave and/or early noise rock, New York City in the late 70s/early 80s or in music in general you should get your ass to Issue Project Room on Friday night. Byron Coley, co editor with Thurston Moore of Bull Tongue, a column in Arthur Magazine that rounds-up crazed and insane music, and Andy Schwartz, former editor of New York Rocker, will be on hand to discuss anything and everything…that’s my guess anyway.
Coley also co wrote and curated the No Wave book with Thurston last year- it’s great. I met Andy Schwartz at the party and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks reunion show at the Knitting Factory (RIP) when the book came out. He’s a very interesting guy with tons of stories.
Coley is reading from an unpublished book about record collectors and will be accompanied by Loren Conners. Schwartz is reading…something!
My hope is the night will be one part nostalgia, one part forward thinking.
