No Wave, Byron Coley and Me (and FFF Dave)

Hey Shuffle Functioneers,

This Thursday night we will be airing an interview that Dave from Free Form Freakout(heard every Thursday at 2 pm)and I conducted with Byron Coley. I know !!! Yes it is THAT Byron Coley that you saw in Jandek On Corwood, Half Japanese:The Band That Would Be King, and the Rocky Erickson and Minutemen documentaries. He and Thurston Moore just wrote a book about the No Wave music scene of New York in the late 70's. It is a brilliant book (with tons of great photos too), and we were very happy to talk with Byron Coley about it. Tune in this Thursday night to hear the interview and some tunes from musicians featured in the book. The show starts at 6 p.m., and don't forget that you can listen on-line as well at

Here is a great clip of the authors discussing No Wave, and a chance to peek at some of the photos. Note that Byron Coley is sporting a Sun Ra t-shirt!!

Thanks too to Dave for helping out with the interview chores!!
