FLYNT, HENRY - I Was A Creep
another fix from the Henry Flynt vaults featuring henry with his downtown NY agitcountry band NovaBilly. Culled from the May 1975 NovaBilly concert at Anthology Film Archives, youd be hard pressed to find a finer representation of Henrys convergence of high lonesome Carolina hillbilly twang and the NY no wave groove than on these two sides: I was a creep (soul mash" & Left Ear (Greensboro Senior High Song). Get it fast! We only did up 300 copies of this one & when theyre gone, theyre gone." - Locust."If I hadnt known already it was Henry Flynt, Id have swore it was a recording of Bob Mothersbaugh fronting 10 60 75 (The Numbers Band) from some long forgotten Saturday night stint at JBs in Kent. Those chooglin barroom blues, weve all hadem! The flip is way more curious & shows the real Rolling Thunder that year didnt belong to Dylans revue but instead to an anonymous bunch called NovaBilly whose solid backbeats & higher key interactions of fiddles n gits reduces the white frocked, turban wearing, mime-faced Renaldo & Clara folly to the outhouse of hokum.In fact, this is so great I got an uncontrollable urge to scream Fuck Bob Neuwirth! at the top of my lungs. So please excuse me while I amble down to the basement & expell my catharsis. Thank you." - Siltblog."This thing is a sophistos "real people" disc, recorded by this Flynt guy in 1975 some time after the holler depicted on those LPs. Ill just say that the a-side sounds like 1979 no-wave as predicted using a Roxy Music-brand magic eight ball and that the flip is just a serious bite of moon cheese, weird and disorienting. There aint very many of these and life is too short to harbor regret-جø¬-?-جø¬-as I have learned. Rats." - Z Gun.
