Novak – “Dumb Records: 1977-1979” – [Orion Read]

Naysayer   9/7/2016   12-inch, A Library

Power pop punky people rejoice: 1977-1979 is back and Novak is in force. Or at least he was anyway. Graduate of Mills in experiemtnal composition, studied under Robert Moog and John Cage, Novak had his credentials all in check. But he wanted to be a punk. Started his own label, Dumb Records and recorded Crime and The Nuns. And his own projects, Novak and experimental noise project The Survivors (with sound samples of Jim Jones, thank you very much). This LP is all the 45’s plus other recordings.
Power punk: synthesizer, jangly guitar, lyrics about models and getting into that girl’s pants. Oh those boys. Yummy, yummy, yummy velveeta and Farrah Fawcet. You get the picture. Mabuhay Gardens reunion album. It has a beat but can you pogo to it? HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!
