Love Of Life Orchestra - Extended Niceties (1980)

Love of Life Orchestra was created by Peter Gordon (sax, keyboards, composition) and David Van Tieghem, a talented, smart-aleck avant-garde percussionist with ties to new music composer Steve Reich. Both have gone on to greater fame as elder statesmen of the downtown music scene in New York, but these early works stand as an important developmental chapter.

Extended Niceties
debuted LOLO's avant-disco in fine form. "Beginning of the Heartbreak"/"Don't, Don't" is quite powerful, pushed along by a vividly colored piano and the distinctive, kinetic rhythm guitars of guests Arto Lindsay and David Byrne. (Trouser Press)

Original Downtown NYC avant-disco with loose affiliations to Arthur Russell. This here's another selection courtesy of my pal, Adam P. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.
