Bob Blank - The Blank Generation: Blank Tapes NYC 1975 - 1985
Strut's latest lesson in music history celebrates the work of NYC record producer Bob Blank and the output of his Blank Tape studios during the 70s and 80s. Although the package is loaded towards disco, there are also a couple of excursions into jazz (Lydia Lunch's 'A Cruise To The Moon' wouldn't sound out of place on a David Lynch soundtrack), funk courtesy of James Blood Ulmer, and, most jarringly, the Numan-esque 'State Of Art' from The Necessaries. While one has to admire Strut's dedication to education, those not around at the time may be left feeling somewhat... blank.
