1 - TUXEDOMOON
- SCREAM WITH A VIEW - (12")
Founded by Steven Brown and Blaine Reininger in San Francisco, Tuxedomoon are a futuristic alternate reality of delirium and existential dread. Aligned with fellow Bay Area experimentalists The Residents (to whose Ralph Records the group eventually signed) and Robin Crutchfields post-DNA project Dark Day, Tuxedomoon developed a unique combination of synthesizer and guitar that placed them at the forefront of the US post-punk movement in the late 70s and early 80s. Scream With a View, recorded surreptitiously in The Residents private studio in 1979, advances brilliant melodic concepts through analog technology for a sound barely comprehensible today. On "Where Interests Lie," punchy drum machine underlies barbed and eerie leads from guitarist Michael Belfer (The Sleepers). "(Special Treatment for the) Family Man"-a reference to Dan Whites trial for the assassination of San Franciscos mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978-is an indignant vigil cut with a rare brand of macabre humor. Saxophone, Polymoog, violin, e-bowed guitar, and CB radio interference make Scream With a View the insidious foil to the urgent No Tears EP..
