A FRESH York-based post-punk music group, the Del-Byzanteens comprised Don Braun (percussion), Josh Braun (percussion aswell), Philippe Hagen (bass), Phil Kline (acoustic guitar and vocals), and a budding movie director from the name of Jim Jarmusch (vocals and keyboards). Writer Luc Sante had written a number of the band’s lyrics, and designer Wayne Nares (who also performed guitar using the Contortions) added periodic percussion. The Del-Byzanteens produced their documented debut in 1981 using the 12″ solitary Girl’s Creativity, which presented a B-side known as “My Hands Are Yellowish (From the work That I REALLY DO).” The full-length Lays to Live By adopted the next yr, and their last launch, the 7″ Draft Riot solitary, was also out by the finish of 1982. Despite becoming through the U.S., all the band’s releases had been through Don’t Fall From the Hill (or DFOTM), which — at that time — was among the three affiliate marketers from the U.K.-centered Beggars Banquet shop and label (Situation 2 and 4AD were the additional offshoots). Following the Byzanteens split up, the Braun brothers (who got previously used Swans innovator Michael Gira in Circus Mort) shaped Deep Six. Kline became further immersed in the brand new York art picture, and Jarmusch became a deeply adored independent movie movie director (Stranger Than Heaven, Mystery Train, Deceased Guy, etc.). Although Del-Byzanteens’ information haven’t been reissued on Compact disc, “Girl’s Creativity” reappeared on Beggars Banquet’s 1999 compilation Pspyched.
