Tav Falco & Panther Burns - Lore and Testament, Vol. 1: Behind The Magnolia Curtain/ Blow Your Top Double LP

  • Sale
  • Regular price $20.99


From the crucible of Memphis honky tonks and inelegant dives, Tav Falco's Panther Burns reared its flaming, wooly head in year of 1979. Soon Falco, known then only as the ‘Beale Street Blues Bopper’, led his group of errant electric troubadours into the vortex of New York's new wave/no wave anti-art scene. As purveyors of art-damage Dixie-fried style, the group embodied the wreck-a-billy ethos that the New York downtown scene was craving. Excruciating performances around Gotham drew the attention of Geoff Travis, founder of Rough Trade records in London. With the shrewdness of a record entrepreneur with no ear for music, Travis commissioned the first album of Panther Burns.
