Re: who's Robert Poss?

Robert Poss -is best known as leader of semi obscure Band of Susans -based
in nyc in the mid eighties early nineties -most people describe them as
sort of more melodic -anti dissonant sonic youth 
he favors a interesting use of sustain -harmonic content in his guitar
playing composing -very rich with overtones -uses G&l axes & marshall or
park amps 
think he plyed with Branca -definetly has worked with Rhys Chatham-Phill
Niblock-Nicholas Collins 

saw him play here in Louisville with BOS around 94 -good show 

saw him play at Experimental Intermedia in NYC   in march -LOTS of looping
gear (at least 3 JM boomerrang etc),effects & modular electonics --

think hes recording other folks work as much as performing --

it should be interesting    K
