Missing Foundation - Assault on Your Life
More lovely noise this time from German/NYC industrial folks Missing Foundation. This is from their only 7" single that I know about. On Lungcast Records.
Released in 1992 on crappy red wax. They did release a couple of full lengths of which I might have one somewhere....
from the Missing Foundation Discography at Discogs.com:
Their logo shows a martini-cocktail glass turned upside down meaning "the party's over!". Missing Foundation made a point of fighting gentrification in New York's Lower East Side and other metropolitan areas. They left their logo painted on walls whereever they travelled. Walking around in major European cities in the late 80's/early 90's you would find this all over the place.
and from the Missing Foundation website (http://www.petermissing.com/MF.html):
THE PROJECT WAS FOUNDED BY PETE MISSING IN HAMBURG IN 1984. TWO MEMBERS OF KMFDM AND FLORIAN LANGMAACK WERE THE LINE UP. THREE DRUMMERS WERE ADDED AND ONE PERFORMANCE AT THE KIR WHICH ENDED IN DAMAGE TO THE SPEAKER SYSTEM. SOON THE BAND DISBANDED AND PETE MOVED BACK TO THE LOWER EAST SIDE. THE BAND WAS REFORMED WITH CHRIS EGAN, P. MISSING, MARK ASHWILL AND VKP.
