Lmo Files
I saw Von Lmo perform only once, at Max's in February 1978. It was a memorable evening. Tables were hacked to death, a chainsaw was brandished. [See the interview for Punk Magazine I did with him on Easter Sunday night in 1979 for more details. ] I believe his band was called Red Transistor at the time. Well, he's still hovering out there, darting out from his lair in Coney Island via Planet X now and then for a gig. In fact, I recently received a transmission from his sector in the form of an email, reproduced here verbatim, along with the press release that accompanied it. Work your way through those to some vintage Von Lmo relics below.
