    Glenn O'brien's Tv Party: The Crusades Show (dvd)

    The year was 1981 and as Ronald Reagan was being sworn into office, Iran was releasing American hostages, and Israel and the PLO both rejected Egypt's proposed peace plan, Glenn O'Brien was about to launch a musical crusade to take back the Holy Land. With snow falling outside and a huddled group of devoted partiers determined to keep the music coming, the TV Party Orchestra launched into a performance of medieval punk rock that featured the talents of harmonium monk Chris Stein, flutist knight Lenny Ferrari, slide-guitar sorcerer Patrick Geoffrois, and organ wizard Walter Steding. A Holy Land Funk rap performed by Fab Five Freddy kept the rhymes rolling even as tensions were high, and popular deejay Johnny Dynell even made an angelic appearance to offer a glimmer of hope from above. Inspired by the theories of Wilhelm Reich and Marshall Macluhan, O'Brien himself dons rabbit-ears antenna to perform the first-ever live television mass mass orgone transmission in a program originally broadcast live from ETC Studios on February 17, 1981.

    Glenn O'brien's Tv Party: The Sublimely Intolerable Show (dvd)

    Chaos gives way to art as a live television broadcast of the legendary, late 1970s public access show TV Party experiences some serious technical difficulties before getting under way with appearances by such special guests as Debbie Harry, Klaus Nomi, Adny Shernoff, and The Patty Smith Group's Richard Sohl. The sound-man has gone missing, ensuring that the opening segments of this episode of TV Party from January 8, 1979 gets off to an alternately amusing and artistically agonizing start. Later, when the sound board gets working, Blondie singer Harry and host Glenn O'Brien back up Compton Maddox in a typically droll performance by the underground singer/songwriter, futurist soprano Nomi takes the microphone to deliver a post-modern aria, and The Dictators' Shernoff covers The Beach Boys' "Be True to Your School" as Manic Panic designers Tish and Snooky cheer along with pom-poms. Later, director Eric Mitchell announces the grand opening of the New Cinema theater and shows a few clips from the latest film Kidnapped. "White people talk about reggae" in a segment featuring British director David Silver and photographer Kate Simon, and the episode winds to a close as Blondie singer Harry, her band-mate Chris Stein, and good friend Sohl sit down to puff on a joint while taking calls from viewersJason Buchanan..

  • Glenn O'brien's Tv Party: The Everything For Sale Show (dvd)

    Glenn O'brien's Tv Party: The Everything For Sale Show (dvd)

    Originally aired live in color on New York City's Channel J (a public access "commercial station") this episode of TV Party from June 13, 1982 found the producers of the show growing increasingly desperate as producer/host Glenn O Barr announces, "Everything here is for sale." He's missing a tooth, and he hasn't had a haircut in quite some time, and while the energy is there, it's obvious that the crew isn't functioning at full capacity. Lenny Ferrari, Karen Geniece, and Charles Rocket join the TV Party Orchestra, the latter plugging into a stack of Marshall amps and running his accordion through a variety of guitar pedals in order to achieve a "heavy metal accordion" sound. Recently fired from Saturday Night Live for uttering the "F" word during a live broadcast, Rocket later launches into a droll, post-modern version of the radio hit "Wild Thing". While at first it appears as if Gun Club's Jeffrey Lee Pierce won't be able to perform due to a broken guitar, he quickly gets a lender and offers a soulful rendition of a Robert Johnson song. The episode winds to a close with a thirty second meditation led by O'Barr, a punk rock poem read by a Russian poet, and a live performance of the original composition "Why Can't I Get Laid" by German new waver Lothar Manteuffel, featuring accordion accompaniment by RocketJason Buchanan.

    Glenn O'brien's Tv Party: The Time And Makeup Show (dvd)

    The fine line between cable television and pop art continues to blur as the TV Party crew toys with time and space in an episode originally broadcast live from ETC Studios on August 19, 1979. Host Glenn O'Brien starts things off with a bang by rolling a joint while blindfolded and smoking a joint, and legendary fashion photographer Steven Meisel follows by performing a remarkable makeover on an everyday girl found at a nearby bar. A musical performance by percussionist David von Tieghem proves that beats can come from the most unlikely of household objects, and punk Parisian accordion/guitar duo Fifi and Claude (Tim Wright and girlfriend Marianne) offer a musical performance that few viewers would soon forget. A magic trick performed by TV Party Orchestra member Lenny Ferrari's "Italian cousin" Luigi Ciccolini gives the proceedings a surreal twist before Richard Sohl, Fab Five Freddy, Ronny Cutrone, and Robert Fripp answer some viewer phone calls.
