Wax! Crackle! Pop! #63: MX-80’s Bruce Anderson and Memories of Non-Existence

Wednesday, April 29


After 40 years together, MX-80 Sound are still spinning (& splitting) heads in wonderment with their unique blend of avant noise/post-punk/metal/rawk sound. MX-80 founder and severely under-appreciated guitar god, Bruce Anderson, guests on this episode and discusses influences and the history of the band. Between moving from Indiana to San Francisco at the height of the punk movement, being signed by The Residents on the classic label, Ralph Records, to of course playing loads of music from MX-80 Sound and the many side projects that Bruce has been involved with.
