Formed in the early 1970's, the Los Angeles Free Music Society was
a collective of experimental artists and musicians that produced a
gushing river of output (well-documented in Cortical Foundation's 10CD
box set in the late 90's) with severe dedication to anything-goes sound
invention. Groups like the Doo-Dooettes, Le Forte Four, Solid Eye,
Extended Organ, Smegma and others delved into free jazz utilizing
homebuilt instruments, junkyard noise and bizarre live antics that
melded with the L.A. punk explosion (and in many cases excelled its
extremities). In the 1980's the LAFMS scene directly fed the fledgeling
noise scene of Japan, with one group in particular, Airway, providing
direct inspiration for the Hanatarash and Hijokaidan. On today's show,
Brian welcomes Airway to the studio for a live set and overview of the
history of the LAFMS, with key players Tom Recchion, Dennis Duck, Rick
Potts, Joe Potts, Fredrik Nilsen and others in house! Airway also
played at the Mike Kelley-curated noisefest for Performa at the
Gramercy on November 21st! - Brian Turner/WFMU (WFMU Playlist &amp; Streaming Archive for BT's show)
