Modern Hits (an anagram for Other Minds) is a series of digital-only releases by under-recognized electronic music composers from the Bay Area. The series features unreleased recordings as well as reissues of previously released material. Our hope is that the series will shed a new light on the oft-lauded and vibrant electronic music community of the Bay Area.
First Things First is the debut from enigmatic and reclusive sound poet Anthony Gnazzo. First Things First begins with Gnazzo’s hilarious take on the Star Spangled Banner, Hymn. The centerpiece of the album, however, is Gnazzo’s absurdist radio play from which the album takes its title.
