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?
