Listening Party 18 featured some great vinyl recordings from artists who helped create the sound we now call No Wave. These musicians—including James Chance, The Lounge Lizards, John Zorn, and Lydia Lunch, were inspired by jazz artists like Sun Ra, Albert Ayler, and Ornette Coleman. Our hosts Doug Hoepker and David Koslowski talked about the link between the the jazz world and No Wave, helping us to understand that these two genres are inextricably linked.
