  • Pylon - Cool

    From the album Gyrate. The pics are them then and then the color ones are from the 21st Century. Long live Pylon.
    From the beginning, the beautiful anarchy that was Pylon was amazing.
    I dedicate this to my daughter S., my pal, dance partner,and the best elementary school music critic that ever danced on two feet.

    this is the official video for BEEP.

    Released in 1983.

    a reissue of CHOMP called CHOMP MORE was recently by DFA Records.
    check it out!

    PYLON is from Athens, GA.

    for more info:



    This video for Beep was made by Pylon member Michael Lachowski in 1988 for the Hits compilation CD that was released on DB Records just as Pylon was reforming after a 5 year hiatus. The background for the video is a Super 8 film that Michael shot out of the van window in California on an early-80's tour. The inset video imagery was intended to be a postcard of the band and was culled from hours of low-qulaity VHS footage that was shot by the band and soundman Paul Butchart on various tours for Chomp. The hardware graphics were generated in 1988 for Hits. This video has been sitting fallow for a long time, and was recently prepared for digital distribution by Dan Aguar who combined a VHS video with the remastered audio that appears on Chomp More, released by DFA Records in October 2009.

    For Pam

    From the album Cazy M-Train, the lyrics are included..This song was covered by REM on the album Dead Letter Office.
    Lyrics:
    You're funny and you don't know why
    YOu're funny and you can't even cry
    You're funny and you don't know why
    You're funny and you don't even try
    You're head keeps SHAKIN
    because you're arms are SHAKING
    and your feet are SHAKING
    because the EARTH is SHAKING

    Listen...

    nothing can hurt you unless you want it to
    there are no answers
    only reasons to be STRONG
    you take a walk
    you take a walk and you try to understand
    nothing can hurt you unless you want it to
    oh...

    your'e in love and you don't know WHY
    you're in love and you can even cry
    you're in love and you don't know why
    you're in love and you don't even try
    (cause) youre HEAD keeps SHAKING
    because you're arms are shaking
    and you're feet are shaking
    (because) the EARTH is shaking

    Danger and Feast On My Heart performed live by Pylon, circa 1981 at Hitsville in Passaic, New Jersey.

    From the album Gyrate - 1980 (Db recs)

    All four members of Pylon were art students at the University of Georgia in Athens. Guitarist Randall Bewley and bass guitarist Michael Lachowski began playing music and attempting to form a band in 1978. They practiced in a studio in downtown Athens which Lachowski rented from Curtis Crowe, upstairs from the current location of the Grill on College Avenue. The room was lit by a single 40-watt light bulb, so the band referred to it as the 40 Watt Club. Crowe soon joined the band as a drummer. On February 14, 1979, the three held auditions for a singer. Vanessa Briscoe (now Vanessa Briscoe Hay) was chosen. The group was named for a novel by William Faulkner.


    Pylon played their first live show at a party on March 9, 1979. Members of The B-52's attended Pylon's third show. Fred Schneider and Kate Pierson of the B-52's were particularly supportive and helped promote Pylon's music in New York City, getting them a gig at Hurrah. Soon Pylon opened for Gang of Four in New York. Pylon's debut single, Cool, appeared on DB Records in early 1980, and received many positive critical reviews. From 1980 to 1983 Pylon toured parts of the U.S., Canada, and the UK, playing with groups such as the B-52's, Gang of Four, Mission of Burma, Love Tractor, R.E.M., the Talking Heads, and U2. Pylon was the opening act for the first part of U2's first U.S. tour. Crazy/M-Train charted at #61 for Club play singles in 1982 according to Billboard Magazine entry in All Music Guide. At that time the members of Pylon were beginning to feel that playing together was becoming less fun and more like a business. They decided to break up the band in 1983.

    With some help from the members of R.E.M., Pylon's reputation as one of the great underground bands of the New Wave era was solidified in 1987. When Rolling Stone named R.E.M. America's Best Band in November 1987, R.E.M. drummer Bill Berry said, We're not the best rock 'n' roll band in America. Pylon, he said, was the best. In the same year, R.E.M. released their compilation album Dead Letter Office (1987):the album opens with a version of Pylon's Crazy, which had been the b-side to their single Driver 8. Confirming this judgment, numerous musicians from the Athens rock scene publicly attest to their deep reverence for Pylon in the film Athens, GA: Inside Out.

    After a six-year hiatus punctuated with a smattering of reunion shows, Pylon officially reformed in 1989, and opened for the final leg of R.E.M.'s Green tour, The group recorded with Sky Records, and released a new album Chain, and a single, Sugarpop. They played several more shows including the South by Southwest Festival in 1990 and 1991, but when guitarist Bewley decided to leave in 1991, the band broke up again.

    Pylon came out of retirement again in 2004, and played their first set in more than a decade in August 2004 at the then-fledgling Little King's Shuffle Club. The band officially reunited for the second time when they played the New Year's Eve (2005) show at the 40 Watt Club; they later headlined the first night of the Athens music festival, AthFest (June 2005). In 2006, they recorded a so far untelevised segment for Pancake Mountain.

    On April 4, 2007, they performed an impromptu show at Little King's to announce the reissue of Gyrate on DFA Records, called Gyrate Plus, which was released on October 16, 2007. They performed several key shows in 2008 including the Part Time Punks Festival in Los Angeles, a show taped for Georgia Public Radio in Athens, Georgia, and at the Revolve Film Festival in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with Mitch Easter.

    On February 25, 2009, guitarist Randall Bewley died, two days after suffering a heart attack while driving his van.

    DFA Records re-released Gyrate and Chomp with extra tracks as Gyrate Plus (2007) and Chomp More (2009).
