Liquid Idiot/Idiot Orchestra

New Wave Post Punk Prior to forming Liquid Liquid in 1981 the band members were in two other groups Liquid Idiot and Idiot Orchestra While these ensembles sounded more experimental than grooveoriented the beginnings of Liquid Liquid's spatial conceptual framework can be heard herenbsp Liquid Idiot started at Rutgers University in the late '70s and soon relocated to NYC where they performed at various lofts and clubs including Tier 3 Mudd Club and CBGB The band even encouraged audience members to bring their own instruments to their early shows Idiot Orchestra was an offshoot that included a dozen or more players clarinet sax trumpet violin cello synth bass marimba and drums resembling a no wave version of Raymond Scott's big bandnbsp As musician and artist Richard McGuire recalls We weren't trying to sound like anyone We weren't imitating anyone We were just playing I keep using 'outsider art' as a reference to what we were doing None of it was made for a market it wasn't made with any intention other than the enjoyment of making it This split archival LP collects two rare 7inches from 1978 and 1980 both of which were originally pressed in hyperlimited editions and selfreleased by the bands The package also features a fanzine of ephemera rare photos and new interview with McGuire
