Le Forte Four ‎– "Bikini Tennis Shoes" (Los Angeles Free Music Society ‎– LAFMS#01) 1975


The first LAFMS release from way back in the lost year of 1975, was by early Potts vehicle, Le Forte Four. I wager that there was nothing quite like this on vinyl in 1975. Thirty half-formed ideas, mostly under a minute long,and quite a few under thirty seconds in length.An Electronic Musique Concrète sound collage of funny noises, studio buffoonery, and found dialogue, with a few rough jams thrown in for good measure. An abstract non-Music antidote from the era of “Tales of Topographic Oceans”.
Were these guys on drugs?......er Yes......as in Yes(the prog criminals), were;....the wrong drugs!
