A TASTE OF DNA

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: 12"
Cata No: SV099
Barcode: 855985006994
New York’s DNA had a massive effect on alternative / indie
rock around the world, despite the trio never releasing
a full-length studio album during their four year tenure
(1978-82). Various groups citing them as an influence have
included Sonic Youth, Boredoms, Big Black and Blonde
Redhead (the latter taking their name from DNA’s most-famous
song). While the band’s explosive live performances
captivated audiences, extant recordings capture DNA’s dynamic
sound and savage economy in songwriting.
Originally released in 1981, A Taste Of DNA remains a
primary source for No Wave archaeologists. Singer/guitarist
Arto Lindsay and drummer Ikue Mori are joined by bassist
and Pere Ubu founding-member Tim Wright. Across
the EP’s six anti-epic tracks, the band charges forward with
jagged guitars and dislocated grooves, while Lindsay’s guttural
screams create a thoroughly personal semantics.
As Marc Masters writes in the liner notes, “A Taste Of
DNA has a kind of sum-of-parts insanity, wherein every
musical element sounds conventionally off, like puzzle
pieces purposefully jammed together at the wrong ends.”
This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of
The Contortions’ Buy and Red Crayola’s The Parable Of
Arable Land.
