finding out lots of stuff now though still unable to
find many recordings outside of the ones mentioned
already. here's one more though.

apparently he does a ton of famous design work for
album covers and one source claims he was once a
member of sonic youth!

Title: Unboxed
Format: CD
Price: $15.00
Catalog #: LBU 12 CD
"Unboxed, a collection of dissected from the Lowest
Form of Life 10CD box set (on RRR) (including tracks
not available in the box set) is a splash introduction
to a newcomer of the L.A.F.M.S. The Lowest Form of
Music is an utterly devastating set of the works of
the Los Angeles Free Music Society. This tremendously
obscure collective -- a loose assemblage of artists
and with shared subversive musical interests (John
Cage, The Mothers of Invention, Captain Beefheart, Sun
Ra, The Residents, Derek Bailey, Harry Partch, to name
a few) -- began in the mid-seventies and nominally
continues today. LAFMS members were compelled by a
wide range of music and art: free jazz,
restructuralism, prototypical noise rock, art rock,
performance art, prog rock, chance composition,
instrument building, kitsch, autodestructive art,
minimalism, tape collage, genre jumping. The Lowest
Form of Music, packaged in a sturdy brown box with a
foldout plastic accordion of discs, is a marvel of
historiography. Unboxed is stunningly designed by
L.A.F.M.S. co-founder Tom Recchion, whose package
designs has resulted in being nominated for 4
Grammy's." Features: Doo-Dooettes, Le Forte Four, C.V.
Massage, Smegma, Tom Recchion, Seldom Melodic
Ensemble, Rick Potts, Foundation Boo, Fredrik Nilson &
Joe Potts. Includes 3 tracks not found on the box set
and 2 tracks never before released.
