FM "Phasors On Stun" For The First Time.

Post by tim gueguen » Tue May 26, 2009 3:58 am

If Wikipedia is to be believed this is FM's first performance, recorded in July '76 and aired in November of that year on TV Ontario.


The Minimoog is obvious, but I'm curious about the rest. Moog sequencer? Elka string machine? Of course some might argue that seeing Nash the Slash's face is more important than what the gear is.

No way! Thanks for posting the link! I've been a fan of FM since around 1977. I'm still wishing I can get Survellance and City of Fear on CD someday.

I saw Nash The Slash a couple of years back. He still gigs frequently in southern Ontario, and his shows are invariably cheap yet entertaining. If you ever want to see his face, just check out whoever is hand-bombing the gear before and after the show - he does (or did last time I saw him) his own roady-ing.

Also nice to see the fashion influence of Geddy Lee on Cam Hawkins back in the day. Growing up in Toronto I saw a lot of blokes with that rather cringeworthy look in the late '70s and '80s.

We should all get together at a Nash show this summer, last time I saw him he opened for The Who ('80) or The Police Picnic ('82) maybe can't remember which concert.

I wonder if he was actually trying to look like Geddy or was it just that lots of rock dudes had similar hairdos back in '76. Look at prog and hard rock band pics from that pre-punk, pre=-disco era and there always seemed to be at least one guy with long hair and glasses.
