Long-lost recordings culled from performances between 1979 and 1982 from the loose group of feminist performers known as DISBAND. Ilona Granet, Donna Henes, Barbara Kruger, Ingrid Sischy, Diane Torr, and Martha Wilson screamed, shouted, sang, and stomped through the heyday of New York City’s new- and no-wave scenes, blurring the line between performance art and live music. Mirroring the chaos and temporarity of that time, the band split up in 1982 having never produced a record. This is the first comprehensive look at their all-too brief career.
This CD features 21 recordings captured from the band’s live performances between 1979-1982.
