Les Techno is a New York City rocker that played guitar and sang in the usual rock hangouts, including in the bands Sim-Stim and Love Posse. Les Techno trained as a guitarist, occasionally with the late jazz-man Larry Coryell, learned to work with analog synthesizers with those big, round knobs, analog reel to reel tape machines, razor blades, and a grease pencil in order to make obscure atonal music for college credit at some fancy-shit university.
While working on his "studio tan," Les made hip-hop tracks with rap artists Run-DMC (Profile), Mobb Deep (Loud/RCA) and Onyx (Def Jam/Sony) (among others). OK, it's true he worked on the Onyx track "Black Vagina Finder". But it wasn't his idea–he got paid to do it. He did a Red Hot Chili Peppers remix (Higher Ground), worked with R&B artist Ava Cherry and with the late, legendary funkmaster Bernie Worrell on a record to benefit the Gay Men's Health Crisis Center in New York City (Downtown, Virgin/EMI).
Les Techno also wrote and produced reggae dance-hall records for Georgie Blacks ("Kickup Unwine", RCA) and Willie One Blood (RCA), techno records for Stimulator ("Are you a Freak?"/ PowWow), and a latin hip hop song for Daniela ("So Hot, Too Hot", Invasion).
Les Techno continues to ignore the unforgettably amusing advice of a "knowledgable" A&R man at a "Major Record Label": "You know, genre mixing in this business is dangerous."
This song is coming straight out of 1985 when bands like The Psychedelic Furs and Duran Duran ruled movie soundtracks and the radio airwaves! Les Techno mixes together hip hop grooves, acoustic guitar, moog and electric guitar psychedelia with lyrics of satire.
