You should go read this history of Pylon in Vanessa Briscoe Hay’s own words.
Pylon debuted at a party above Chapter Three Records shortly thereafter. Most of our friends from town and art school came to the party.Chemical Features, basically Pylon without me were the opening act. The crowd stood still. This was also the same reaction we received the second time we played a party at Curtis’ loft with the Tone-Tones. Not until the third time that we played, did the audience dance. I think that people were a bit stunned. Perhaps they weren’t sure what to think. Perhaps we were truly awful.
That’s my favorite paragraph.
