 Don King was formed as a result of a phone call from Thurston Moore asking me if I could put something together to play at the Noisefest he was organizing at the White Columns gallery in 1981. I enlisted China Burg from Mars, then known as Lucy Hamilton, and Duncan Lindsay (Arto's brother), and we did the show as a trio, with me alternating trumpet and bass, Lucy guitar and bass clarinet and Duncan on drums. It worked well and we decided to continue under the name Don King which was actually the pseudonym Lucy used for that first show.
