I’ve played “Chanson Dada” in a lot of bands since (and even recently found my translation had been covered by some wacky Scandinavians!), but it’s probably the composition of mine I identify most closely with Noise 292. That made it a special pleasure to perform at our reunion May 31, 2009, when we presented Che Games for May at San Diego’s Casbah.
Performers are Matthew Rothenberg (bass, vocals); David Rives (lead guitar); Kristin Martin (rhythm guitar); Wendell Kling, Hobie Hodge (percussion); Joey Miller (drums). The video is courtesy of Eric Rife and Paul Kaufman, edited by Dave Fleminger.
