Monte Cazazza Career
Monte, the visionary behind the culture, left an indelible mark with his bold and confrontational style. In fact, it was he who christened the movement. Through the mail art movement in the early 1970s, he forged strong connections with the members of Throbbing Gristle. As COUM Transmissions evolved into TG, Monte played a vital role as both a loyal supporter and a conceptual architect. He also contributed his own musical creations to Industrial Records, including the beautiful tribute to motherhood, “To Mom On Mother’s Day.”
When TG’s mission came to an end, Monte emerged as a key collaborator in establishing Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth, an anti-cult cult, alongside its propaganda wing, Psychic TV. Monte was deeply immersed in shaping their ideology and appearance during their initial emergence. Throughout his journey, Monte steadfastly remained an outsider, defying expectations and trends. His perspectives on any given subject were always refreshingly unique, honest, and distinctive.
What you need to know about Monte Cazazza
Beneath it all, he held a cherished place as a dear friend to those fortunate enough to know him personally. During his early career primarily based in San Francisco, Cazazza holds the distinction of coining the renowned phrase “Industrial Music for Industrial People.” This phrase eventually became synonymous with the record label and the artists it represented. Over time, the experimental sound manipulation and noise collages originating from Industrial Records gained recognition as the pioneering genre of industrial music.
Cazazza had established an underground reputation as an exceptionally intense performer, known for his potentially hazardous and anti-social aesthetic. His body of work often revolved around acts intended to provoke maximum shock value. As a student at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, he showcased his artistic prowess by creating a cement waterfall that rendered the main stairway of the building inoperable, all as part of his initial sculpture assignment.
