"This edit of Le-Forte Four is wedged between their former incarnation as The Patients and their debut LP that was put together in the electronic music studio at Cal Arts in 1974. Edited by Rick Potts in 1973. All the references made in their debut Bikini Tennis Shoes LP, from Speed Racer to Zappa to Looneytoons to the Moog, is very clearly foretold in the Boris The Spider/Priceless edit. Includes Extended Grunge and Arguments From The Patients reworking of The Whos Boris The Spider that was later submitted to the Norwegian Electronic Music Festival and rejected. First time available. The release includes: a 7" repro of the very rare Slimey Adenoid and the Pablums The Residents b/w Joe Potts Mother Daughter, CD of Le Forte Four Boris The Spider/Priceless. Hand numbered edition of 700 copies." - Cortical Foundation.

Artist: LE FORTE FOUR
Title: Bikini Tennis Shoes
Format: LP
Label: Etats-Unis
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"The origins of Le Forte Four are those of the Los Angeles Free Music Society itself. Chip Chapman joined forces with Rick Potts (and shortly thereafter Tom and Joe Potts), taking up the LAFMS name in 1974. Ultimately baptizing themselves Le Forte Four, they began threading imagined lines between John Cage and The Residents, Cecil Taylor and Henry Cow -- generating sounds completely unlike any of these and anything since. The inaugural release on the eponymous LAFMS imprint with only 200 copies pressed originally, Bikini Tennis Shoes is a staggering piece of anti-music that remains as refreshingly ground-clearing today as it was when it first appeared in 1975. Its 40 minutes (parceled out across nearly as many tracks) chart forays into free improvisation, Buchla misuse, filtered noise, begrudging and damaged melodic sorties (from the Star-Spangled Banner to Stravinskys The Rite of Spring) and healthy doses of basement pablum. Le Forte Four emerged out of the lethargic American 70s as a locus where, in their own words, gamelans and ragas merged with serial and chance compositions finally melting together with instructional records and Beatles bootlegs. A wildly eclectic rummaging of postwar culture and 20th century sound, Le Forte Fours Bikini Tennis Shoes preempts punks outsider ethos and DIY autodidactism. Limited edition of 500 numbered copies on clear vinyl." - Etats-Unis.
