Default Who's Your Favorite No Wave Artist(s)?

I have to say mine are both DNA and Glenn Branca. DNA in terms of listening for pure pleasure, and Branca out of respect and admiration (although, I enjoy his music, too). His work with Theoretical Girls was great, and his solo work was just genius. What about you guys?

Probably James Chance. His work with both the Contortions and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks is the tits. I really dig DNA, Theoretical Girls (as well as Branca's solo work) and Mars too.

Have you got the No New York comp?

I've listened to it, yea. It had a few songs by Mars, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, DNA, and the Contortions. Thank God for Brian Eno...

I'm forever indebted to Eno for curating that, one of the best compilations in any genre and a great entry into the weird and wonderful world of No Wave.

Have you two listened to New York Noise comp. in two volumes? The first is called something like 'Dance music from New York underground' and contains Liquid Liquid, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, DNA, Mars, Contortions, Bush Tetras etc. focusing more on the funky sound. Vol. 2 is just titled as New York underground from 1977-1984 and has Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca, Rhys Chathm, Del-Byzantees, Ut, Static and many more that I didn't know about. The big revelation for me was a band Red Transistor. I've only heard of them before, but never actually heard the music before listening to this comp. Great stuff!

As for my favorites, definitely Theoretical Girls and Mars.

I havent, but I like Liquid Liquid and Bush Tetras a lot, so that'll be something I need to procure in the future for sure.

Both of these volumes are actually a mix of more funky music and no wave and noisy music. There's also Volume 3, but I haven't heard it. I should probably as I already really like Dark Day, Suicide (Martin Rev is on the comp.) and Ike Yard. Judging by these the comp. probably focuses more on the synth and electro sound.

I still have the links for these two volumes. I can send them to you, only to check if they're still working.

That'd be great if you would.
