SMEGMA- LIVE AT THE X-RAY CAFE - 12" VINYL LP

# VDR 1701
SMEGMA- LIVE AT THE X-RAY CAFE - 12" VINYL LP


The fifth installment in the "Tales from the Grease Trap" series of live archival releases from Portland's early '90s features the legendary noise/experimental group, SMEGMA. SMEGMA came into being in Pasadena, California in 1973, incorporating a "band without musicians" approach and exploring new musical ground via the convergence of amateurism, improvisation and a proto-punk aesthetic. In 1975 SMEGMA relocated to Portland, and simultaneously became involved with the Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS). The two sides on this album, recorded on February 13, 1993 and February 17, 1994 at the all-ages X-Ray Cafe in Portland, showcase SMEGMA traversing uniquely fertile ground, journeying between abstract loop-based soundscapes, surf rock, Krautrock and brutal noise. Mixed + mastered by Frank Musarra (Girl Talk, Trey Told 'Em) from the original 8-track cassette recordings. Limited-edition pressing of 500 "cloudy-clear" transparent vinyl records. [Price: $18]
