  • Hyena (Posh Boy) 1982 

Big-band no-wave rock rubbish (“arrangements by the musicians who played them”) from a stack of local instrumentalists as LA performance artist Went babbles her lyrics over the top. Noisy, raucous and unpleasant, soured by relentlessly squawking sax and showing no audible wit or structure, Hyena must be someone’s idea of art.
