Freeform punk and music for 18 hairdressers

Max Reinhardt surfs the cutting edge of adventurous music, old and new. Including freeform punk from 1980s Portland and jazz cornettist Ben LaMar Gay’s debut release.

Max Reinhardt surfs the cutting edge of adventurous music, old and new. Tonight’s show features freeform punk from 1980s Portland band Smegma, and jazz cornettist Ben LaMar Gay presents his debut public release after making seven albums that were only shared privately between friends and family. Max also plays a track called Music For 18 Hairdressers, a nod to Steve Reich’s minimalist masterwork Music for 18 Musicians.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.
