—01. Rereleased on Superior Viaduct.
Phill Niblock has long been one of the central protagonists of the NYC loft scene, holding concerts through his Experimental Intermedia label since 1968 and producing some of the richest and most splendid, long-form drone music in the nascent genre’s history. His first album, Nothin To Look At Just A Record, sources its sounds from recording continuous tones, in this case trombones, which are then densely layered. The product announces an idiosyncratic approach to creating music that would continue throughout his multi-decade career. Superior Viaduct's 2013 rerelease of his 1982 debut is sold out at the source, but copies can still be found of this great, early record from a real legend in the underground music world.
