1 - TUXEDOMOON - SCREAM WITH A VIEW - (12") 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Founded by Steven Brown and Blaine Reininger in San Francisco, Tuxedomoon are a futuristic alternate reality of delirium and existential dread. Aligned with fellow Bay Area experimentalists The Residents (to whose Ralph Records the group eventually signed) and Robin Crutchfields post-DNA project Dark Day, Tuxedomoon developed a unique combination of synthesizer and guitar that placed them at the forefront of the US post-punk movement in the late 70s and early 80s. Scream With a View, recorded surreptitiously in The Residents private studio in 1979, advances brilliant melodic concepts through analog technology for a sound barely comprehensible today. On "Where Interests Lie," punchy drum machine underlies barbed and eerie leads from guitarist Michael Belfer (The Sleepers). "(Special Treatment for the) Family Man"-a reference to Dan Whites trial for the assassination of San Franciscos mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978-is an indignant vigil cut with a rare brand of macabre humor. Saxophone, Polymoog, violin, e-bowed guitar, and CB radio interference make Scream With a View the insidious foil to the urgent No Tears EP..

2 - TUXEDOMOON - TEN YEARS IN ONE NIGHT (LIVE) - (LP) 
GET BACK


Originally released in 1989 to celebrate the band's 10 year anniversary, this 2LP set, taken from various live performances throughout Europe and Japan from 1985-1988, is a kind of "best of", looking back to the band's very beginnings as pioneers of the American post-punk scene, through to their eventual genre-defying evolution into full-fledged members of the international electronic / experimental scene by 1988. The track listing goes all the way back to the band's first singles (1978's "Pinheads on the Move" and 1979's "No Tears"), to a time when Tuxedomoon was in the habit of leading the avant-garde on both American coasts: from San Francisco's post-punk scene and NY's no wave. Soon after the release of 1981's "Desire", having tired of "California r alles" and Ronald Reagan, the band decided to leave the States for the more experimental pastures of Northern Europe. During this time the band released a series of discs on the Belgian-based Cramboy, proving themselves equally able to blaze trails in Europe as well. >From this period come some of their most successful albums to date, including 1985's "Holy Wars" from which we have "In A Manner of Speaking" and 1986's "Ship Of Fools" from which we hear "Reedin' Rightin' Rhythmatic" . Right around the time of this album's release, Tuxedomoon went on a 15-year recording hiatus, reuniting again to release 2004's brilliant "Cabin In The Sky" and eventually coming full circle by traveling together to record in their hometown of San Francisco. Tracks - Side A: 1. Michael's Theme 2. Burning Trumpet 3. Reedin' - Rightin' - Rhythmatic 4. The Waltz 5. In A Manner Of Speaking Side B: 1. The Cage 2. Everything You Want 3. Dark Companion 4. Courante Marocaine Side C: 1. Lightbulb Overkill 2. Desire 3. In The Name Talent (Italian Western II) 4. Nervous Guy Side D: 1. Pinheads On The Move 2. No Tears 3. In Heaven 4. Nazca
