Pylon were art-school students at the University of Georgia: four kids invigorated by big ideas about art, creativity and society. Less a band and more of an art project, they had very specific goals in mind as well as an expiration date. While their time together as a band was short lived (1979-1983), they had a lasting influence on the history of rock and roll. Throughout their brief history, they were able to create influential work that would help foster the post-punk and art-rock scene of the early 80s. Artists like R.E.M., Gang of Four, Sonic Youth, Sleater-Kinney, Interpol, Deerhunter were heavily influenced.
Gyrate is their debut record released in 1980. After the release they started touring the states, soon developing a devout following across the country and specifically in the bustling music scene in New York City. One of their earliest gigs was opening for the Gang of Four in the big apple.
