Jeff and Jane Hudson
Jeff & Jane Hudson, a.k.a Jane & Jeff Hudson a.k.a. Attack Under Attack, were an husband and wife duo from Boston making experimental electro pop in the early to mid 80s. They were two of the three original members of art punk band The Rentals, Pseudo Carol being the third member. The Rentals formed in the fall of 1977 in Boston, and released their first single 'Gertrude Stein' b/w 'Low Rent' which were produced by Oedipus (former program director at WBCN, Boston).
The Rentals broke up in 1980 and Jeff & Jane relocated to Manhattan and started a duo under their own name. They performed in venues in Boston, New York and Philadelphia, opening for Suicide. The instruments they used were early Roland synths and the TR808 drum machine. For some performances, Wally Gagel appeared on drums with Russ Smith on bass. After signing with No Wave label Lust/Unlust they released their first singles in 1981 and the album 'Flesh' in 1983. In 1985 the band stopped performing and recording.
In 1986, Jeff started to direct music videos and Jane produced video art. Both were teaching at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1995, Jeff and Jane reformed and performed for a couple of years and recorded again (Zeta Brew). The new music was more guitar-based and psychedelic. Jeff's project for 1998 was Gigantor, a trip-hop techno 3D video multimedia show. This show was performed at The Bank in New York and the Middle East in Cambridge.
