Glen BrancaLesson No 1 (2 x 12" pressing) ... LP
99 Records/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy 2 x 12" (reissue)... $16.99
Seminal sounds from the New York scene at the start of the 80s – and one of the first important records to feature the music of Glenn Branca! This EP was an important part of the 99 Records catalog – and like that label's work by artists like ESG or Liquid Liquid, it's got a style that's completely hard to define – a genre-blending mix of influences and elements, presented with a sensibility that's at once arty, and down to earth! Branca works here in a smaller setting than on later recordings – playing guitar in a quintet that also features Anthony Coleman on keyboards – and working at a level that brings the best ideas of the minimalist compositional generation into play with smaller combo rockish instrumentation. "Lesson 1" is a track that's held us rapt for years – and it's backed by the equally great "Dissonance". This special reissue also features a bonus one-sided 12" single – with an early performance of "Bad Smells" – one of Branca's first multi-guitar compositions, performed by a group that includes Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, and Ned Sublette!

Remi GassmannElectronics (10 inch vinyl) ... LP
Cacophonic (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $15.99
Remi Gassman's groundbreaking music for George Balanchine's Electronics – a ballet of sorts, but one that's got a definite space age score! Gassman's sounds here are amazing – raw analogue electronics, played by the Studioatonium keyboard, and manipulated by tape – so that cycles often emerge, and shift slowly – as music that must have been pretty darn hard to dance to, but which is still mesmerizingly mindblowing all these many years later! The work has some of the best qualities of Jon Appleton's later electronics, but is more serious overall – and titles include "Postlude", "Trio", "Curtain Music", "Declamation", "Echo Stretta", and "Scherzo".
