Here are ether^ra and This Second Sleep performing at some show early in their "careers" as rock militants at some indeterminate room somewhere on planet Earth (NY).  I do believe the guitar was raggedly Japanese with a terrible action and the bass, a powder blue Hagstrom from Sweden.  This was well before we could afford Telecasters or Jazz Basses.  That came a bit later.  The above image was used for an exhibition announcement for "works on paper"  at the South Houston Gallery in SoHo.  This preceded the area's strangulation by boutiques ,  so dirt and distortion could still be found on Prince Street.  A proto-punk art moment,  perhaps?
