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.

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.

Side two is the very first Good Missionary concert in
"Bottom Of The World" a jam recorded at the "Gig
of the century" in the Lyceum ballroom May 1979. The other
two numbers are also largely improvised and were recorded on the
"Pop Group" tour summer 1979.

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.

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
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 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 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.
Let's Get Professional LP 1984 Mutant Sounds
The 012 Let's Get Professional LP 1984 Kill Your Pet Puppy
So here's their only LP. The band along with the hippy punkies Here and Now established in the late 70s the cassete label Fuck Off.They appeared in the compilations Weird Noise,We couldn't agree on a title,Angst in my Pants.Weird Pere Ubu-ish post punk weirdness.The band later transformed to World Domination Enterprises.
and the Window - Detailed Twang LP 1980
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.
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!
- 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).
