New Releases: The Music of Bill Brovold

We are proud to present the music of Bill Brovold, distributed through Team Love by special arrangement with the artist, and now available worldwide to stream or download.

The Spaghetti-Western-turn’d-peyote-dust’d-Carnie-After-Party that is Bill Brovold’s “Superstar” is undeniable.”

– Cassette Gods

Bill Brovold is a painter, composer, and artist. In the early 1980s, he was a member of a number of New York avant-garde, No Wave groups including Rhys Chatham Ensemble, East Village Orchestra, Fast Forward and the Zen Vikings. Bill created the Detroit bands Larval and Strange Farm, whose revolving line-ups at times included Billy Ficca of Television, Ernie Brooks of Modern Lovers, and Ron Asheton of The Stooges.  Brovold’s long musical history overflows with interesting projects and obscure yet essential names in the worlds of art and avant-garde music.
