FLYNT & NOVABILLY, HENRY - NovaBilly
Taste the magic! NovaBilly is another edible audible from Henry Flynts dusty lower Manhattan bunker and it stands as one of the fullest, most beauteous document of Flynts tenure with a full working rock band to date. For less than one calendar year between 1974 and 1975, Henry Flynts hard driving, heavy jamming agit country rock band, NovaBilly embraced bareknuckled deep fried groove attacks, bearded hippie jam band workouts & a monstrous melange of blues, boogie and free jazz squeal into a musical soufflé that could only have come together with Flynt cooking up what was proven to be, time and again, an impossible vision within the confines of the SOHO art orbit of the 70s. After a couple performances at Anthology Film Archives and studio sessions in Richmond, Virginia and Manhattan, the band postered SOHO in a last ditch effort to get some traction with the hipsters that read, Party on down to the Kitchen. Stoned country music for rock country. The gig, like all the others before it, was poorly attended. NovaBilly played what would be their last live gig at the Kitchen on June 27, 1975. NovaBilly covers a damned fine and important moment in Henry Flynts musical career. If the Insurrections laid the foundation for his anti-war primitive garage rock sound, the emergence, nearly a decade later, of NovaBilly is the realization of Henrys own vision of obtuse personal politics (I was a creep), provocative left-wing posturing (check their version of the world communist anthem The International!) and a gleefully recombinant spin on southern music. 13 cuts and 60 minutes of old glory! - Locust.
