About This Item

New York: S. O. 36, 1979. First edition. Paperback. Very Good +. Square, photo-illustrated stapled booklet accompanied by two 45 rpm records in original sleeves. Luxus was the name given to the "band" formed by Martin Kippenberger, Christine Hahn (member of the legendary post-punk bands Malaria! and Mania D. and The Static with Glenn Branca) and Eric Mitchell. The latter two being important artists in the No Wave scene in New York. This was the only release on the S. O. 36 label, named for the nightclub Sud Ost, which Kippenberger briefly managed in Berlin, and which hosted shows by Throbbing Gristle, Wire, and other post-punk and No Wave projects. The record sold terribly upon its release - the record with street and background noises and the provocatively amateurish drumming of Kippenberger was a conceptual provocation not only to the average listener, but even to most punks - a record undigestible to all. One anecdote has it that Kippenberger distributed remaining copies free at the closing of the club - and it has become increasingly difficult to find since, especially complete with the booklet. All elements in at least very good condition. This item precedes Kippenberger's first solo show which took place in 1981.
