What the hell was this?
B&W home movies of No Wave artists performing onstage, with no synced sound, just live recordings playing over performances that, most times, have nothing to do with material being performed.
Chaotic. Confusing. At 53 minutes, even boring.
But at the same time, wonderful. A peak inside a keyhole at what it was like in that scene. No fuss, no muss.
Invigorating and demanding to watch, this movie makes you want to have been there sooo badly.
These are the artists whose filmed performances I was able to identify based on my severely limited musical knowledge:
Quite an assemblage, don't you think?
Definitely worth a look if this is what you're into.
