V/A: Nine//Underground,LP,1987,USA

Here's one of the rarest Swans/Jarboe related releases.
"The music on this album was first broadcast on WREK's "Notes From Underground" in Atlanta, Georgia over a three year period beginning in the summer of 1982. The making of industrial/electronic and related musics in Atlanta reached a peak during 1983-1984 as the radio show and performers fed off of each other and the activity that was happening all over the world.
PVC PRECINCT developed a full and rhythmical electronic sound while PILLOWTEXANS have moved on with their alternative/accessible music. Members of CLUBFOOT and PVC PRECINCT are now performing as the electronic trio FLATBUSH. ACCIDENTS OF CULTURE, whose original sound followed from AMM, continue to create music under various groupings of musicians. JARBOE and INCEST have left Atlanta for New York. INCEST no longer performs, but JARBOE is now creating a wide range of music, from the extremity of her work on the "Dry Lungs" albums and with SWANS, to the accessibility of her pop releases. While YOUNG SCHIZOPHRENICS are still notorious in the city, output has (at least temporarily) subsided. SEQUENCE 3, who is actually the host of a local new rave radio show, continues to produce experimental music under a variety of monikers."

Holy Crap. I've had this on wax forever but never thought that it would see the light of day.

I agree with the above!
I am Dan Leithauser, one of the three producers of this recording (Arthur Davis--lead instigator, and Chris Schwartz--Perimeter Records and found-made instrument maker were the other two). WREK provided a nice vehicle for promo. The Jarboe "Walls are Bleeding" alone is worth every penny.
Thanks for the memories!

If anyone here knows what happened to JD Wilbourn (Young Schizophrenics), please post it here. He called me in NYC one time and left a sinister laugh on my voice machine. I used that laugh on my piece "Surgical Savior." WREK/Atlanta played Walls Are Bleeding during lunch hour On The Air in 1984. :)
