Robert Fripp

Harsh & thrash


Glenn Branca, iconic figure of the avant-garde No Wave's scene in New-York, passed away this 13th of May at the age of 69.
He got his first  electric guitar after he listened "You really got me" by The Kinks, and  started later with the bands "Theoritical Girls" and "Static" in 1977.
After being part of the "Guitar trio" with Rhys Chatham and Nina Canal, in 1980, he composed several medium-length compositions for electric guitar ensembles,
 including "Lesson N°1", "The Ascension" & "Indeterminate activity of resultant masses"

"Glenn Branca's fire-breathing music is a turbulently successful mix of sonic pioneering and experimental melodics with rock-solid, butt-kicking guitar thrash..." 
Tristram Lozaw for BOSTON ROCK

Here, circa 1978, an amazing solo part of guitar
