Nicolas Jaar's Other People Label to Release Live Comp from Teenage Jesus and the Jerks
This spring, Nicolas Jaar reissued a spoken word album from no wave pioneer Lydia Lunch through his Other People label. Next, Jaar will be sharing some archival live tracks from Lunch's exploratory former band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks.

The album is functionally titled Live 1977-1979, and it contains material recorded at the New York venues Max's Kansas City and CBGB. There are also a few cuts captured at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern.

The 27-track collection contains almost every Teenage Jesus and the Jerks composition (some of the songs appear more than once). Only one of the recordings has been officially released before this (one of the versions of "Crown of Thorns"), and the whole thing is made up of remastered bootlegs. According to a press release, "Ms. Lunch herself is quite satisfied that this just might be the final nail in the coffin."

Live 1977-1979 will be out this fall, although the exact release date hasn't been confirmed. See the tracklist below. More details about these recordings (and the band in general) can be found in a press release.
