L Voag - " The Way Out " (no label no.9) 1979

Despite what a disgruntled Nurse With Wound fan said(see comments in Gus Coma post), L Voag was a direct influence on the NWW sound, and he WAS around in 1979, before "Chance Meeeting On a Dissecting Table" was recorded. Take note of the listing of L Voag on the nerd-worthy NWW list of influential artistes included with said LP.
Much more tape collage madness from Jim Whelton and cronies,following the true punk rock course of moving 90 degrees to the mainstream, challenging the accepted norm of what music is........its this LP in fact.
Very similar in places to the Gus Coma and Milk From Cheltenham records from around the same time; they were mostly released two or three years after they were recorded, so take no notice of the release year on the labels,they all began life in or before 1979....."Seminal", as they say in music journo skool.........all together now...."SEMINAL!"

Frankly this It's War Boys material is some of my favorite music that I've heard in years, period. This has been the best discovery. This and the Amos and Sara material are certainly my favorites of the bunch, including The Fear Merchants... and the experiments with sampling from Gus Coma onto Die Trip Computer Die are a phenomenal breath of fresh air. Brilliant mate!

Eh, I reckon I mean Homosexuals-related material rather than specifically It's War Boys! I also mean some of my favorite music period, not just in years.

I can't disagree with you.There is more to come,on The Bruno Wizard side of things Homosexual.

I bought L Voag "The Way Out" as an album by The Homosexuals at Wax Trax in Chicago around 1980 or so, as I collected everything by the Homosexuals and It's War Boys collective.

I've lost all the recordings, but am slowly regaining them thanks to you and a few others!

"The Way Out" blew my mind. Punk was dissolute and New Wave was getting boring. This was a fresh and fun music.
