Here's a little seen treat from a little scene called No Wave. This DVD (with the soundtrack also available on CD with extra tracks) charts the Soho side of things in a completely punkish, no-frills fashion, just a Super-8 camera pointed into an alcove where a series of terrifyingly undernourished bands will be introduced and play.. Although there is the occasional fade into a photo or something to be fair. The most well known people here are undoubtedly multi-guitar overlords Glenn Branca (with The Static and Theoretical Girls - who killed it here better than they ever did on record for my money) and Rhys Chatham (who plays a stunning 'trio' with only two people and seemingly just the one chord) as well as the ever-underrated UT (who had a good go at it right the way through the 80s) and it's great seeing such rare early footage, but the real fun is in the lesser-known bands whose performances give you a much more rounded idea of the scene as a whole.. I'm particularly enamoured with Jill Kroesen's awkward torch songs and Youth In Asia's feral dissonance but they all have their charms. An invaluable document, oui?
