The main instigator behind late 70s/early 80s UK DIY super group The 49 Americans was Andrew "Giblet" Brenner who assembled a loose, disparate group of musical/non musical practitioners as an experiment in equality and democracy. This democracy included David Toop, Steve Beresford, Max Eastley, Lol Coxhill and Peter Cusack (coming out of the anything goes improv scene), Nag and Bendle of The Door And The Window, Viv Albertine of the Slits, Vivien Goldman (her Adrian Sherwoood/John Lydon produced Dirty Washing 12" on 99 Records is a classic), Giblet's mum and many more.
"Think of The 49 Americans as a band, in the conventional sense, and you're lost." (David Toop)
