I once had a friend email to ask if the crazy rhythmic cymbal pattern toward the end of Destination Unknown was the inspiration for or sampled by Schoolly D's "PSK" (later sampled in Siouxsie's Kiss Them for Me, iirc.). I didn't think so, but I did find this clip of Terry playing it, and it's a downright impossible thing to pull off unless you have his mutant chops. You can see him do it around the 2:33 mark here:
Even gets a close up at 2:39 and beyond!

Man, Terry on "US Drag" in this set:

that US festival was maybe my favorite musical weekend in my life- divinyls, english beat, the clash, pretenders, bowie
is that some sort of first generation IEM in Dale's right ear?

Pretty sure it's what she uses to communicate with her home planet.

Not a huge turnout, but still surprised Words got shut out. That was their first radio hit, as I recall.

Dale Bozzio invented Lady Gaga. In fact, on Noticeable One she pretty much IS Lady Gaga...

Based on # of votes, I’d say this album is waaay under appreciated here…Including by me. I only listened to the whole thing for the first time today and damn does it overdeliver on expectations. would still prob vote for the winner but could make a case for at least a couple others.
also had no idea about the band’s zappa connection until a coworker mentioned it.
