Hey KeithV,

both this and the Cravats seem interesting to me.

Could you add links to stuff so that we may check it out?


Thanks.

Red Transistor was amazing...his Future Language album is great...he seems to have lost it after that, from what i've heard...but an easy NOT CRAP overall...

NOT CRAP. No way. The Red Transistor stuff is easily the best, but I'm pretty sure I have most all his stuff and it's all pretty good. Cosmic Interception is slightly less good than the rest of it (definitely his cheesiest, but some degree of schtick is obviously a foregone conclusion with Von Lmo, I guess), but still pretty good. Future Language is a fine record and probably his best (especially the fairly-recent Spanish reissue with all the bonus tracks). Red Resistor is right up there, largely due to the 20+ minute "Red Transistor Medley", which is most, if not all, of the the Red Transistor stuff in one long song. Very noisy and very great.

FYI, some Red Transistor stuff can be found on the 2-CD Songs of the Naked City comp on Red Star, and on a 7" on Ecstatic Peace. This is well worth tracking down.

Cosmic Interception (or whatever it's called) is really awful. Do not purchase that record.

all the stuff on Songs of the Naked City has been since included on the reissue of Future Language with the bonus tracks, and since that's pretty much necessary to have in and of itself, it makes the need for Songs of the Naked City less, uh, necessary...

You know, I forgot about those tracks being included on the Future Language reissue. I don't know anything.

The Red Transistor 7'' is on Ecstatic Peace. "Not Bite/We're Not Crazy." I think this is the greatest No Wave statement of all.

Jesus. Fucking. Christ. I am not posting first thing in the morning anymore. I can't believe how I've made a total fool of myself. I was thinking "Thurston Moore's label" and "Forced Exposure" came out. How embarrassing. I'll bet Ecstatic Peace isn't even his label. I haven't been wrong about enough today.

Seeing him play live at The Cooler in NYC was pretty entertaining. His band was made up of guys who dressed like cholos, which confused several of my friends.

I got a chunk of his guitar, after he smashed it.

"Not Bite" was Red Transistor's "epic" song. On the 7" sleeve notes Rudolph Grey describes it as "our 'Father Cannot Yell.'" I think they always played it at the end of their shows.

Words can't really convey the incredibly fantastic awesomeness of that song.

Untold thousands of people owe their lives to the work of Ralph Nader. So, whatever Ralph Nader does with the rest of his life, he has earned a lifetime NOT CRAP pass. Von Lmo, thanks to his work in Red Transistor, has earned a similar pass.

Not crap, but IMO his stufd was a little bit too naive and "novelty" kind of stuff. Anyways enjoyable.
