The Scene Is Now (TSIN) were formed at the dawn of the 1980s by Philip Dray and Chris Nelson, a band born from the ashes of No Wave trio, Information (the third partner of that outfit being Rick Brown). Influenced equally by the ragged avant-folk sounds of the Holy Modal Rounders and the Fugs, the screech of DNA and Mars, and the traditional Americana of Bob Wills and Hoagy Carmichael, TSIN instantly set themselves apart from the pack. Their music was an indefinable mixture of the old and new, the impenetrable and the accessible and the weird and wonderful. Some folks compared 'em to the Red Krayola or Pere Ubu, some to SST outfits such as the Meat Puppets and Slovenly, and some people even hail them as the world's finest No Wave jug band. The point is this: between the years 1984 and 1988 they released three magnificent albums on their own label, Lost (the last two being in co-operation with the Twin/Tone label), which have been out of print for a dog's age and never seen the light of day on compact disk. Until now.
If you like the music of their fans - Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo (who covered an old TSIN track on their Fakebook LP) - the music of their peers - Mofungo, Pere Ubu, dBs, Fish & Roses, The Feelies - or the sounds of their acknowledged influences - DNA, Sun Ra, Red Krayola, Minutemen - you'll love the music of The Scene Is Now. This exclusive Lexicon Devil CD reissue of Tonight We Ride has been fully remastered from original tapes by the band and comes with an informative, photo-filled 12-page booklet with liner notes by yours truly.
