Founded in the early 1980s, National Disgrace included Fred Rinne, Kit Young, Andy DeGiovanni and Marshall Webber. ( I think just Fred and Kit made it to this show)
Ensemble was hand-made sculpture which produced waste sound, utilized in the “songs”. Percussion was springs on metal, banging on scrap metal, rotating motor with objects whapping into metal. Strings were from Industrial shortening 5 gallon cans made into amplified pseudo-guitars. Vocals were backed up with melted records and harmonica. A National Disgrace show would be an array of these sculptures emitting sound at random with slight human moderation.
Songs attempted include:
Blue Suede Blues, Bite the Children, National Disgrace, Lamenting Dirge Grind, Surfin’ Surfari, Surfin’ Surfari #2, Syncopation Scratchin’, Tow The Line, Horse With No Name, Inna Gada Da Vida Baby, Cawing Scratchy Crows, Misfire and Melted Grind Funk.
CD-R comes packaged as shown in black DVD case, wrapped in plastic!
