Half Machine Lip Moves Episode 41: 5/20/2018


This episode leaned heavy on no wave/noise rock, as we paid tribute to the late Glenn Branca. We started with some of the recent works by The Body; then we paid tribute to the late Glenn Branca by playing two sets of his work; did a focus on Neutral Records label; then we played a set of noise rock/no wave; and closed with a block of heavy psychedelic rock.
