Default Anybody Heard Of This Guy?

Alrite just recentley came across this guy and he is fantastic. He is an avant garde composer who mixes classical music with electric guitar, I have his two first albums 'Lesson No.1 For Electric Guitar' (In my opinion any album with that name deserves checking out) & 'The Ascension'.
Wondering if anybody else has heard of him as I have asked many people of all ages who have not heard of him.
His name is Glenn Branca.

The Ascension is a great piece of work. Do you like Rhys Chatham too?

damn, I was reading your post getting more and more excited about who it was going to be, then you named the album and I got all sad cause I knew Branca already .

But Branca's good, I use to dig his beats a lot.

Glenn Branca can also get you into more noisey stuff, like stuff from the No-Wave era... like:
-DNA
-James Chance and the Contortions
-Mars
-teenage Jesus and the Jerks (LYDIA LUNCH)
-sonic youth
-Suicide

Alright mate thanks for that, I know someone at work who keeps going on about no wave and drone music. I already know and love sonic youth (favourite album is Goo) Ive heard of a few of the others but will do the usual drill and jot them down for downloading.
Cheers!
