TVD Radar: TwinArt Presents Instant This / Instant That: NY NY 1978–1985 2LP clear vinyl in stores 9/16

VIA PRESS RELEASE | This 2LP or 2CD set gazes into a micro-scene from the NYC Lower East Side art scene circa late ’78-’85, through the lenses of a variety of feminist perspectives on post-punk and true art punk. An ultra-violet time machine to a micro-scene viewed and heard through the curation of twin artists Linda and Ellen Kahn, who together are TwinArt. This magnificent journey features the music they created for the Manhattan Cable, along with other female voices from within their orbit.

Instant This / Instant That is built around the coveted flexi disc from an art mag that featured a song by Taste Test and a cut from intense Molecular Activity (IMA). Joining the fun are Jill Kroesen, who contributes her cult A-side “I Really Want To Bomb You” along with two unissued cuts from her poetic and percussive headspace.

Multi-media artist Julie Hayward, once known as Duke Delight, contributes two songs she put to tape working with IMA’s Don Hunerberg that are poignant and powerful as they work she’s shown at the Whitney or the video she directed for The Talking Heads (“Burning Down The House”).

Post-punk “Do-Dada-ists” The Dance contribute quite a bit here, including an unissued demo, a cut from an EP, and two collaborations with TwinArt. All these treasures are woven together by sound art shorts from IMA under the guidance of TwinArt. This album is a delightful as the cover art of Ellen and Lynda suggest.
