TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS
one time only REUNION event!!!!!!!!!!!
FRIDAY - JUNE 13TH // EARLY SHOW & LATE SHOW (8PM/11PM DOORS)

http://knittingfactory.com/show.php?event_id=111664
http://knittingfactory.com/show.php?event_id=114435
-----------------------
To commemorate the publishing of NO WAVE: Post Punk, Underground, New York, 1976-1980 edited by Thurston Moore and Byron Coley and published by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., the Knitting Factory NYC is proud to present the one time only return of the most legendary of No Wave pioneers TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS.

Started by Lydia Lunch in 1976 in a NYC landscape at its peak of rot and desecration TEENAGE JESUS THE JERKS spared no one. A complete disinterest in favorable audience response and a vicious leer towards any rock n' roll burnout critique distinguished TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS not only from the burgeoning punk fodder of the CBGB/Max's axis but of their contemporaries in the No Wave scene as well.
Led by notorious teenage downtown death-kitten Lydia Lunch the band had within its fold for its barely three year existence saxophonist James Chance who departed early on to form The Contortions. Other members included bass player Reck who returned to Japan to continue with the infamous Friction, bass player Gordon Stevenson who died, drummer Bradley Field who died, and bass player Jim Sclavunos who played with many No Wave acts of the time and went on to play with Sonic Youth in the early 80s and, for the last decade or so, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. The band recorded the most incendiary documents of the era on the NYC label Lust/Unlust and French label ZE. Atavistic Records is issuing a complete TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS compilation in June 2008.
The band will feature Lydia, James Sclavunos on drum and a lost member of TJ&TJ on bass. Also on the bill will be a supporting act from the ashes of the original NYC No Wave nightmare. Don't be late, it will be over before you know it.

James Chance & The Contortions?
I think they are practically the only ones or at least James Chance that is still doing music and playing live with some sort of regularity

it be awesome if Mars and or DNA would play again, just once though, just once...

I'd much rather see James Chance or DNA or Mars etc, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are not no wave and were way too late to ever be considered part of it.

Moshe, you think you're joking but who else could it be? The line is very specific 'from the ashes of no wave' so it wouldn't one of Mark Cunninghams or Brancas bands and that wouldn't have to be a secret anyway...if they were playing the line wouldn't be ashes it would be 'secret band with no wave pioneers"

shit, I guess I'm gonna go for the 11 pm show, and Vision fest lineup was just announced too...

According to an anonymous tip, it seems the sensible rumour going around about the "mystery" bassist appearing with Teenage Jesus & the Jerks will be the one & only Thurston Moore. Definitely makes sense...
