Biography

RockBoar.com Picture    Teenage Jesus and the Jerks were an influential American no wave band, based in New York City, who formed part of the city's no wave movement.

  Founded by vocalist Lydia Lunch, saxophonist James Chance, bassist Reck and drummer Bradley Field, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks was active from 1976, releasing only a handful of singles.

    Infamous for playing ten-minute sets filled with thirty-second songs, they sought to take music beyond what Lunch saw as the traditionalism of punk rock.

     The group disbanded at the end of 1979.
