Los Angeles Free Music Society

Los Angeles Free Music Society

Profile:
LAFMS was formed by Joe Potts, Rick Potts and Chip Chapman in 1974 and were soon joined by Tom Recchion and member of Doo-Dooettes. It was a collective of like-minded artists inspired by the likes of Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa. Some of those in the collective included Smegma, Le Forte Four and Doo-Dooettes and some other groups interested in noise and improvisation.
10XCD Box-set called "The Lowest Forms Of Music" introduced the history of LAFMS collective to the masses.

According to the discography in LAFMS: The Lowest Form Of Music, LAFMS#09 would be John Duncan Organic, however there is no mention of this catalog number on that LP, and John Duncan has stated this was not an actually L.A.F.M.S. release, which is why it is not included in the box set.
