View Full Version : L. Voag

02-14-2007, 09:51 PM
I was listening to the solo album, The Way Out, of Homosexuals member L. Voag tonight and I was struck by how similar it was to some of Julian's Music Tapes stuff. I would find it hard to believe it was an influence but it's in the same vein; lots of found sound stuff thrown with minimal instrumentation. Reminds me at times of some Animal Collective stuff as well. If you like that sorta stuff and you can find the album (which you probably can't, it seems to be uber rare....I d/l it off indietorrents or somewhere...can't remember) check it out. I suppose I could upload it or something if there was interest. The Homosexuals were a great punk band as well, if you can find some of their stuff.

The Homosexuals' Record is up at the Invisible Record Archive Blog (http://invisiblerecordarchive.blogspot.com/). I ended having a friend burn me a copy of the L. Voag because the only place I could find was already dead by the time I got there. Also if you are interested I think it was either the Mutant Sounds Blog (http://mutant-sounds.blogspot.com) or the Mystery Poster Blog (http://mysteryposter.blogsot.com/index.htm) that had the Just Measurers (A Homosexuals/L Voag/Amos & Sara offshot) album up as well. These are all great albums and I had already done some leg work for two.

i was wracking my brain trying to remember why l. voag sounded so damn familiar. and its because the soft pink truth covered a song by them. he covered "kitchen". which is probably my favorite song off of "do you want new wave or do you want the soft pink truth?". its a very good album. its drew daniel, who is half of the group, matmos. the album is a collection of punk/hardcore covers made to be dancy. good stuff, people.

1. "Kitchen" (L. Voag) 3:05
2. "Do They Owe Us a Living?" (Crass) 4:43
3. "In School" (Die Kreuzen) 1:07
4. "Media Friend/V.S.B." (Rudimentary Peni) 4:57
5. "I Owe it to the Girls" (Teddy & the Frat Girls) 3:13
6. "Out of Step" (Minor Threat) 3:01
7. "Real Shocks" (Swell Maps) 3:39
8. "Confession" (Nervous Gender) 4:36

Yeah I forgot I found this interview last week and meant to post it here. I am not sure when it is from I'm guessing mid-90s. In it L. Voag kind of explains the origin of the Homosexuals and all the off shoots of that. It's a little confusing because it seems to jump around a bit but it's also kind of interesting.

This is really good so far. It doesn't really remind me of the Music Tapes at all, though.
