cheers to the fellow "prov-ers".  saw the wunderground show...it was cool.  no surprise there.  my six year old loved it too!  i think the DIY and artful stealing of imagery is a big thread that runs through ft thunder and no wave (dada, hardcore, psych, etc).

i saw UT at the rocket (later club babyhead) in prov in the 80's (their second go around i think...).  they were awesome.

UT: women who switched instruments, were incredibly powerful and not over the top sexual (in a pandering way).  that sounds like a recipe for historical neglect to me...


IMHO, new wave appears to be quite a "scene" and even a small scene is going to have factions.  there will be "winners" and there will be "losers" and later revisions and later still more revisions.

perhaps there is no "secret history"...just personal ones.

best regards

> Back to UT for a second, they're not the easiest band in the world to Google-search. I did a  career-spanning interview with them in 2006. 1st of 3 parts starts here:

> I also wrote a cover story on No Wave for the Prov. Phoenix. My editor was totally on my wavelength and not only put James Chance on the cover but gave prominent placement to  Ut photo as well.

> They deserve far more attention than they've gotten. I don't get why they've been so unfairly neglected all these years. Marc Masters' book covers them quite well. But I was really surprised that the Moore/Coley book had minimal (not to mention largely incorrect) info about them. I expected more.
> Jacqui's band Dial [http://dialmusic.net] are planning a tour for the fall. If I get any more info I'll let you know.
> One last Ut-related thing: I just posted a live track from a 1987 Belgium show, if anyone's curious.
