The History of No Wave and New York Post Punk By Thurston Moore & Byron Coley

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

Who could tell the history of how the no wave scene started in New YorK? Enter Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, a band that was there when it was happening. He's teamed up with writer Byron Coley to complete No Wave:Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980. It's a comprehensive look at the scene and its fundamentals. It includes photographs, art, and interviews as a way to convey the scene.

 

It cites influences and scene members like Glenn Branca, Lydia Lunch, James Chance, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jim Jarmusch and more as part of the NY underground that gave birth to one the cities most interesting and eclectic movements of the 70's/80's.

 

David Bowie weighs in with "Moore and Coley wade into the mire that was No Wave and pull all kinds of order into it, if that could be possible. I’ve never been part of a scene, though if I were I might have opted for this one."

 

The book will be published by Abrams Image Books on June 1st
