DNA - A Taste of DNA (American Clavé, 1981)...

6 track E.P...
DNA were formed in 1978 by guitarist Arto Lindsay and keyboardist Robin Crutchfield. Rather than playing their instruments in a traditional manner, they instead focused on making unique and unusual sounds. Their music was described as spare, noisy, and angular and was compared to some of Captain Beefheart's output and even to Anton Webern. The abrasive and destructured sound of DNA can remind of the greatest hours of the Velvet Underground and has been forged by great names such Arto Lindsay (guitars and vocals), the Japanese percussion wizzard Ikue Mori, here on drums, Tim Wright, previously bassist of Pere Ubu who in DNA took the place of keyboardist Robin Crutchfield. The group was to have a decisive influence on people like Thurston Moore, John Zorn or acts like Blonde Redhead.
