Teenage Jesus and the Jerks- no wave nostalgia

Two pieces of agenda for my Village Voice article about Lydia Lunch reuniting her No Wave band Teenage Jesus & the Jerks for a one-night show in New York at the Knitting Factory- 1) Avatistic is going to reissue all their material on one CD again this summer (the original one is pictured left and came out in 1995) and K.S. Art gallery (right across from the Knit) is having an exhibition of photos and flyers from the same time period, many of them featured in Thurston Moore/Byron Coley's No Wave book (which was the original inspiration for the TJ reunion). You can also see this Flickr page with some good photos from the show.

Oh, and one more thing... Lunch has been presenting a project called "Ghosts of Spain" across Europe, which she describes as a "psycho ambient soundtrack about about desert, loneliness, desert, war." Sad to say, she hasn't found any U.S. venue or promoter to present this in the States, which is why the TJ date was her only show in the States.
