Speed Trials...

The Speed Trials noise rock series organized by Live Skull members in May 1983 at White Columns. Among an art installationcreated by David Wojnarowicz and Joseph Nechvatal, various performance artists such as Ilona Granet and Emily XYZ did their acts intermixing with the music of The Fall, Beastie Boys, Live Skull, Sonic Youth, Lydia Lunch, Elliott Sharp, Swans and Arto Lindsay.

"Speed Trials" was eventually released as a live album recorded by Mark Roule and became one of the best-selling independent records of its time
