Laurie Anderson – “It’s Not the Bullet That Kills You, It’s the Hole” (1976)

Very early Laurie Anderson in a very “accessible” mode, pulling together a reggae-zydeco-pop thing that foreshadows the Raincoats, Animals & Men, the Pretenders, maybe even Scritti Politti.  Available for free download along with a number of other early/rare Anderson tracks at the always-compelling Ubuweb. [Laurie Anderson is featured here and here in mixes at Musicophilia]

    this sounds rather folkish for laurie anderson. but still it’s not easy listening at all. i love her music (“strange angels” – which is more accessible than this – ruled my world just before my final exams at university) and her stories.

    Thanks for the link to Ubu – some fantastic stuff.
    There was a period of time when I snapped up everything by her – went to see her everytime she played in London. Kind of cool to be reminded quite what it was that really snagged my attention.
    Might have to do a marathon United States Live listening experience thsi weekend!
