LAFMS on LARZ!
In the first of a projected gazillion shows devoted to the Los Angeles Free Music Society, on Sunday February 3rd, 2014 Doug Harvey's Less Art Radio Zine welcomes founding LAFMS operatives Rick Potts, Joe Potts, and Dennis Duck, fresh from their opening-night gig at the Printed Matter LA Art Book Fair. The LAFMS were a loose aggregation of like-minded audio experimentalists that emerged from Pasadena in the mid-70s; part of a global phenomenon of artists who suddenly came into possession of the trickle-down means of production to make and distribute records, tapes, and magazines. We'll barely have time to scrape the surface of the back catalog of just these three -- Mr. Duck was the drummer for Dream Syndicate, after all, and Rick Pott was 1/3 of Solid Eye, one of my favorite local bands of the 90s -- but we'll have fun trying.
12 Noon Saturday Feb 3, 2014 at 1630 AM in Chinatown, LA or www.kchungradio.org
