Item description for No Wave by Marc Masters & Weasel Walter...

Flashing through New York in the late 1970s, No Wave was the ultimate anti-movement. Its bands consisted of untrained artists looking to explode rock and disappear before the smoke cleared. The primary perpetrators all drew on primitivism, performance art, and the avant-garde. But they were best known for short songs and even shorter life spans. No Wave traces the history of this unique movement, from early pioneers like Suicide to Richard Hell, to hidden treasures like Red Transistor and 8-Eyed Spy, to descendents like ESG and Sonic Youth. No Wave is a comprehensive guide to a movement whose influence still resonates today.

Reviews - What do customers think about No Wave?

Best Book on No Wave so far!  Jun 20, 2008
The Best & most Vivid book about the Fabled No Wave scene of NYC in the Late seventies so far.

There are a Few other decent books, but this one is the Best.
Great Stories, Pictures, Opinions & Of Course Music!

Another "mystery" scene in the Varied history of Punk rock. Along with the Hollywood scene, NYC's No Wave scene was an insular one. With it's own bands, stars, films TV, & Press. It rose from the Burned out streets of Downtown Manhattan. Original musical Ideas Thrust upon a world, not even asking for it!

From the Pre-Punk rumblings of Suicide, throughout the ZE & Lust/Unlust record labels No Magazine years. James Chance, Anya Phillips, Lydia Lunch, Amos Poe, Beth B, Glenn Branca, Pat Place & More all survived & Maybe even Thrived! They did it their way!

This Book captures the scene in Great Photos, info, & graphics. You may have Missed out on it in it's original time, but you could still be Inspired by this book, to do your Own thing. And Of course, not just aping those Great sights & sounds. Lydia Lunch will come After ya!
