Playlist for Just Music 6/19/2011 Featuring a Live Performance by The Tenses (Members of Smegma)

Thanks to my friend C. Spencer Yeh, we had the extraordinary pleasure of welcoming Ju Suk Reet Meate and Jackie Oblivia on to this past Sunday's Just Music program. Meate helped form the legendary non-music ensemble Smegma in the early 70's and Jackie joined just in time for the classic Smegma LP Pigs For Lepers. While Smegma is still a band(the new record, Mirage, on Important Records is AMAZING), Jackie and Ju Suk have been perfroming as The Tenses. Ju Suk explains The Tenses as a "smaller, more focused version of Smegma." They played an amazing set live in the studio and we spent the ensuing 45 minutes picking their brains about the origins of the LAFMS, Portland's punk rock scene in the 70's, and a bunch of random shit. We could have listened to their stories for hours...
