This page is dedicated to the history of all things Street Level.
Street Level was a recording studio based in west London, it existed in the early 1980's.
Many bands recorded there, they included Here & Now, Alternative TV, The Good Missionaries, The Door and The Window, 012, World Domination Enterprises, Androids Of Mu, Danny And The Dressmakers, Treatment, Instant Automatons etc .....
Street level spawned Fuck Off Records (or was it the other way around) and many other labels used their facilities. This site will detail the records recorded at Street Level and "music" closely associated with the West London DIY scene of the early eighties. Firstly there will be record/cassette discographies, followed by some historical texts for the groups involved, then some Real Audio sound files in glorious lofi.
Then of course there was the Idiots Ballroom at the Clarendon, the Meanwhile Gardens free concerts and the Radio 4 expose leading to the mobile Street level studio.

Dont Tread On My Dreams

The 012 and the Sell Outs - not badly recorded seminal charisma and out of tune 
guitars. Gut level rock and roll from 1979. The Sell-Outs were a band led by Fuck 
Off records supremo Jonathan Barnett. The line up on the record is Jonathan on vocals, 
Steve Lake on detuned bass, Mark Mob of the Mob on detuned guitar and Kiff-Kiff from 
World Domination Enterprises and the 012 on drums. Jonathan and Kif-Kif detuned the 
instruments and asked us to make a random unholy row while Jonathan screamed his lyrics 
about running a budget record label whilst signing on the dole and trying to exploit 
(in a very small time way) the resources of larger record companies. The aim, as with 
most of these things, seemed to be to help bring about the demise of the record industry 
and there after the whole global capitalist, military industrial complex; to tap into some 
creative, life/art/spirit force through spontaneity and improvisation; and in the process 
try to make Jonathan the star he really should have been. The whole enterprise was doomed 
sadly. The track was truly awful, though the E.P. it comes from did have some amusing 
tracks by Danny & the Dressmakers and a good track by the 012. It also contained a track 
each by the 'Door and the Window' and the Instant Automatons ("Electronic Music").

The Avant - Punk Years
I rejected punk's restrictive format and took ATV into a direction that was more like free form jazz than the three chord thrash. Some critics despised the change, a few applauded it. I didnt give a shit. As far as I was concerned, it was my band and I could do what I wanted with it. Miles Copeland (my manager at the time) still talks about the day thet I first played him 'Vibing...', he sat there aghast thinking it was some sort of joke until he realised that I was deadly serious. 'Vibing ...' had, and still has a clarity that I could never acheive within the confines or the traditional rock sound. Punk inspired me but I could never let it constrain me. 'Vibing ...' is all about me and my life - wierd, stark and sometimes even embarassing. I wanted people to like the album because I guess I wanted them to like me. The real me, not Mark P Punk prophet, but me that lurks behind all the bullshit. I thought that people would appreciate my honesty but most rejected it, perferring the safe world of pop-punk. I still think that 'Vibing ...' is a classic punk album because it takes it into truly chaotic territory - witness the brooding 'The Radio Story' for proof. To me, punks only boundaries are the ones that have been set up in peoples closed minds. Punk became the new rock music.

It wasnt long before ATV imploded once more, leaving only Perry and Burnss to record the profoudly experimental "Vibing Up The Senile Man", before the pair emerged from a lenghty 'free' tour with Here and Now to record the 'ATV Memorial Single', "The Force Is Blind/Lost In Room". It was as far away from the Roxy Club as you could get, although for Perry, punk rock had become a strait-jacket cliche-ridden and hijacked by imposters, that he barely wanted to be associated with it any more. "The Force Is Blind" was as intense and paranoid a piece of music as you'll find from any late 70s, tripping over itself with lysergic karma, just as the bands earlier '1-2-3-4' punk rock material had pogoed furiously in amphetamine directed straight lines. The group had collapsed as had the dreams which had propelled it into action.

This is the first in Fuck Off records "Wierd Experiments In Noise" collection and is a serious attempt to blow your mind with sound. As you may have noticed the long drwan out 'hypnotic' pieces (otherwise known as the boring bits) are necessary to bring out the sheer power of the noisy bits inherant in this type of music. While every attempt is made to ensure perfect audio reproduction, we must admit we quite enjoy that 'fucked up' sound. The Good Missionaries is a natural progression from Alternative TV. ATV in the beginning were a pretty hard hitting if not intriging sort of punk group. However as time has passed, variuos members have joined and left the band until the final line up (recorded on side one) decided that the music had changed so much and lots of people were still coming to the gigs expecting the older line ups, that changing the name would be a good idea. About the time of this penultimate gig the music had got so wierd that hardcore heavy punks had taken to throwing bottles at the band, on one occasionMark was knocked unconsious by one, and during side one the tension in the air is easy to spot, as is the final destruction of the equipment by band and audience alike, after the PA is switchedoff mid-set. Side two starts with a jam recorded on the first Good Missionaries gig, a tentative affair where the group performed in masks, it was allmeant as a bit of a laugh really but the band enjoyed the relief from not having a name to live up to, subsequently the content is less strained. The rest of side two feature two performances on the most recent Pop Group tour featuring the newest line-up. These additions and changes aid Mark in his former capacity as lead instrumentalist by stopping up a lot of gaps he used to have to run around the stage to fill all by himself. And generally I think it will be agreed that these later recordings show the band at their most relaxed and productive to date.

ATV working live disguised as The Good Missionaries, which was 'Vibing On The Road' recorded live on the "Animal Instincts" tour 1979. We had agreat time touring with Pop Group who supported us financially and spiritually. We made a lot of noise, dismantled some old songs and then broke up. It was great fun while it lasted.

The Good Missionaires evolved from Alternative TV during the Pop Group 'Animal Instincts' tour. With the addition of more instruments and musicians, the idea was to carry on playing the old ATV songs but to use them as a root for musical experimentation. This was successful to some extent, but the hoped for development of new material from this format did not happen. This record ia an example of the sort of musical meandering thet the Good Missionaries used to get up to. The master tape of this record was given to the Hastings Anarchist group's paper, Poisen Pen, as a contribution towards the setting up of Hastings Free Press, and to help launch Unormality Records. The Good Missionaries have not, in fact, split up, but only one person from the previous line-up Dave George, remains. The 'new' Good Missionaries are based in Hastings and have spent the last few months rehearsing and learning a completely new set of songs, and music. Though retaining many of the ideas prevalent in the old band the music has become more structured and formalised to try to put these ideas in to a context that works. Because this record is not representative to the Good Missionaries as they now sound, and due to unforseen delays in its release, it has been decided to limit the number of copies pressed to one thousand.

The disturbing noise/chaos level achieved by this angular Ladbroke Grove (London) trio-formed by singer/guitarist Keith Dobson after the dissolution of his previous band, 012--is indeed something marvelous. The astonishing high-pressure racket of Let's Play Domination's opening salvo ("Message for You People") may send you rushing to the turntable to see if your stylus is accidentally gouging a hole in the platter. Besides sturdily unsettling originals, the album--clearly a stiff-upper-lip cousin to Big Black, Birthday Party and other punishing pain-inflicters-includes a relatively straight rendition of L.L. Cool J's "I Can't Live Without My Radio" as well as deranged interpretations of Lipps, Inc.'s "Funkytown" and a U-Roy number. As Dobson layers on the scathing, slithery guitar and sings in a plain, serviceable voice, the rhythm section lurches and pounds in a tight phalanx; producer Dave Allen captures the entire meltdown with thrilling clarity.

Judging by their 12-inch singles, all of which contain alternate mixes, WDE is big on remixes, which makes the release of Dub Domination--eight album tracks given studio massages--no big surprise. Love from Lead City, packaged to look like a bootleg, with no information or credits, is a crude live record (with no hint of an audience's presence) that features spare but crushing renditions of such headbutts as "Funkytown," "Message for You People" and the political "Asbestos Lead Asbestos," a song originally from 012's album.

Six Minute War

Nurses / Youth Culture / Protect And Survive
So Sad / Guitarist / Sell Out

Six Minute War arrived on the scene in 1980, exploring minimal lengths as well as minimal lyrics and instrumentation. It might not be too wicked to call them the poorer relation to Crisis or the thinking man’s Heretics, but you get the idea. Their 11-song debut was entitled 33.3: the next release was More Short Songs (though there were only 5 of them and relatively long in 3 minutes a piece roughly). Their 4-track swansong was (naturally) Slightly Longer Songs. After that a couple of them ended up forming Fallout, and Rob Taylor later joined Andrew Beer in Concrete and 400 Blows.
The majority of these tracks were recorded at Street Level Studios and engineered by Kif Kif, who at that time had left Here And Now and was performing in 012. Both of these bands are featured on this site somewhere, as is more Fallout material.

Music For Midgets

free 01 this is what you get when we sing. 

the door and the window - pokerville
nag - in the road / oh bondage up yours
the casual labourers - eanna is returning / out of control / something from nothing
mark perry - death looks down / sound of music / sorrow cried blood
the door and the window - lust / swinga

the door and the window were bendle, nag, giblet,mark perry
david toop and brass (including roddy disorder and some not named); 
nag was nag with david toop and giblet; 
the casual labourers were bendle, sue, dave morgan, tony clough and ashleigh marsh; 
mark perry was mark perry with dennis burns, dave george and sam transmitter. 
the sound quality changes from weird to awful. great.

The tape "what happens when we sing a song?" was recorded live at the LMC (london musicians collective) probably in 1979 and distributed for free or at prime costs under the licence of copyleft. Every body in fact was encouraged to copy and to share these recordings.

Various Artists – Dreams of Reality

Snatch Tapes Various Artists – " Snatch Tapes 2 " (Snatch Tapes ) 1980

A rather special tape here.Snatch 2, featuring ,among others, Graham from Danny and The dressmakers, as The Beach Surgeon, and the usual Snatch suspects, The Alien Brains (the New Blockaders), David Jackman, and The Storm Bugs. There’s an appearance by the Sea Of Wires, with their incorrectly named “2 T’s and a Funny Hat”, which is called an ‘Endless Rainy Day’ on their excellent cassette “Individually Screened”. Spools full of claustrophobic DIY electronica, that sounds like it was recorded under a duvet after midnight, absolutely fantastic.

As with Snatch 1 the tape lists the names of the artists but not the track titles (?). Further details were included on a small booklet sent out with the tape. The Beach Surgeons feature Graham Massey (Danny and the Dressmakers) who went on to fame and (perhaps) fortune as part of 808 State, here he delivers a very humorous soliloquy on the merits of collecting girl’s nail clippings. Vote Police are of course our good friends Storm Bugs.

 I’ve tried my best to split it up into tracks, but it is really in the form of a mix-tape, so I’ve supplied two downloads, one split up, and the other as it was originally intended.

Side A
Orchestral Introduction
Beach Surgeons : Mannequin Moves
Vote Police – Our Main Objective
Orchestral Interlude
Mountain Stream
2 T’s and a Funny hat
Side B
David Jackman – Untitled
Scratch Dub: Beach Surgeons, John Cage, Scratch Orchestra with rhythm & loops by David Jackman, Philip Sanderson and Storm Bugs
Lemon Kittens: Storm Bugs – Thin Line Flash of Traffic
David Jackman – Pulses

The Reflections - Slugs and Toads LP.
Something of a UK DIY post punk supergroup and easily one of the rarest titles issued by Cherry Red, this ragtag assemblage culls together personnel from Alternative TV (Mark Perry, Dennis Burns), The Lemon Kittens (Karl Blake) and The Door And The Window (Nag) and much like the demographics suggest, around 3/4 of the contents here err on the side of the sort of itchy and endearingly disheveled post punk machinations that Perry, Burns and Nag were proffering in their primary vehicles, though Blake's presence insures some measure of overtly riotous sonic deformation will be brought to bear, most notably on the deeply twisted and uber-Beefheartian lurch 'n' caper-fest of "Toy Dog Ripped By Cat", one of the more demented chestnuts that Blake's ever had a hand in penning.

Skeletal stumblebum idiot savant songform fragmentation that vacillates between moments of delirious jerry-rigged inspiration and passages that border on the insufferably sophomoric, brought to you by this batch of DIY rabble rousers whose stance and attitude (complete with DIY manifestos on the back cover) aligned them strongly at the time with the likes of The Desperate Bicycles. Loosely yoked to a whole network of willfully rinky dink art damage, Nag and Bendle (2/3 of The Door And The Window) also participated in The 49 Americans (posted by moi a short while back), a group with a similar propensity for inspired faux naif art brut whimsy and Mark Perry (the other 1/3) was of course the leader of Alternative TV, whose NWW list included group The Good Missionaries also traffic in much the same sort of abstruse fuckery.

The Door and the Window - 2nd EP
Mad as a bag of frogs, this EP is the second released by The Door And The Window, so cheaply recorded and pressed it makes the band’s LP, ‘Detailed Twang’ sound like U2!

Zounds - Free Freak Out 1980
Zounds practising, more than likely recorded under a haze at Street Level Studios around the time or just after the Weird Tales Tours (the one with The Mob / Astronauts / Androids blah blah etc).
