In the late 70s, Craig Leon produced crucial albums that defined the punk and new wave landscape for future generations. For his own debut Nommos, released in 1981, one can hear how the punks rubbed off on him, imbuing his primitive electronic music with a striking rawness. Originally released on John Fahey’s Takoma imprint in 1981, Leon’s debut album joined ranks alongside such glorious catalog oddities as The Psychedelic Saxophone of Charlie Nothing, Joesph Byrd’s Yankee Transcendoodle and Basho Sings!, not to mention Fahey himself, prone to play guitar atop audio collages of Tibetan monks and Nazi marches.

Craig Leon is, of course, one of the seminal NYC punk/New Wave producers who brought us so many excellent things from that scene, ranging from Suicide to Blondie. And he's continued his production work on up to the present day, of course. Especially his first, "Nommos". Used as a soundtrack for a dance work by Twila Tharp (as was a lot of nifty NYC stuff from this general period), "Nommos" is supposedly based on African rhythms and the like. The whole hypnotic but not necessarily relaxing vibe. And then over this, Leon builds up layers of more drones.
