Ribbon Around A Bomb

Experimental ambient-art-punk duo Snatch was comprised (mainly) of Judy Nylon and Patti Palladin. The two women collaborated from 1976 through 1980 before moving on to solo pursuits.

Good-times Snatch punk from ’77:

Weirder Snatch post-punk from ’80:

Compare to Judy Nylon’s later solo work, like this Eno-ized, ambient version of “Jailhouse Rock” from ’82. This is easily one of my favorite covers of all time:

Arts Bombast: La Pocha Nostra

Ribbon Around A Bomb

Aliados:  You may (or may not) have noticed that my posting on Ribbon Around a Bomb has decreased lately.  The reason is a very exciting one indeed.  I recently accepted a part-time position with Guillermo Gómez-Peña, “post-Mexican” performance artist, author, thaumaturge-superstar and Artistic Director of San Francisco’s La Pocha Nostra.

One of my first projects for Guillermo was actually putting together an Indiegogo campaign for La Pocha Nostra’s Fall tour. If you support radical pedagogy, Chicano activism, unconventional art, or experimentation in general, you should throw down some dolla bills and get a mix-tape made by Guillermo. And if you tell me that you donated, I’ll throw in a mix tape of my own, ft. obscuro Spanish-language femme punk.

In any case, enjoy some…
