Human Sexual Response was an American New Wave band formed in 1978. The band broke up in 1982.


Formation and early years

Casey Cameron formed an all-kazoo band ("Kazoondheit") with her neighbors, among whom were Larry Bangor, Dini Lamot (brother of Larry and cousin to "Pecky" Lamot), and Windle Davis. The four became fast friends and soon formed an a cappella country-and-western band called Honey Bea and the Meadow Muffins, who played at parties and in the subway. Encouraged, the four decided to start a rock band.

Posting ads, the quartet met three musician/composers, drummer Malcolm Travis, guitarist Rich Gilbert, and bass player Rolfe Anderson. These seven became the original lineup of HSR, with Anderson being replaced on bass by Chris MacLachlan in 1980. Bangor was the main lead singer, though Lamot, Davis, and Cameron each sometimes sang lead. They named the band after the groundbreaking, and now classic, Masters and Johnson best-seller.


After MacLachlan joined the band, they recorded two full-length albums, "Fig. 14" (1980) and "In a Roman Mood" (1981), as well as 1981's "Pound" EP. Their tune "Jackie Onassis", from "Fig. 14", got airplay beyond college radio, while other songs, such as "What Does Sex Mean to Me?" and "Land of the Glass Pinecones", had more of a cult success.

"Fig. 15" was a CD release in the 90's, and it contained "Fig. 14" plus the song "Butt Fuck" that landed the band in hot water when they played it on live television. [When and where did they perform this on "live television"?]


Human Sexual Response broke up in 1982. Casey dropped out of show business. Travis, Gilbert, Bangor and Maclachlan went on to form a band, The Zulus (a/k/a Wild Kingdom, a/k/a Screaming Mimis, a/k/a the Gospel Birds) and released a self-titled LP in 1985, and then "Down On The Floor" in 1989. Malcolm Travis later played drums for Bob Mould's Sugar.

Rich Gilbert was a member of Concussion Ensemble, Country Bumpkins, a project band called Clown, Frank Black and the Catholics, played on four Tanya Donelly solo releases, and currently plays pedal steel with Thad Cockerell. Upon moving to Nashville, Tennessee, Gilbert has gone on to perform with such artists as Jen Jones, and Travis Mann, and is currently teamed with drummer Steve Latination, bassist Zack Shedd, and vocalist Meat Johnson to form the local power quartet Meat and Three.

Dini Lamot launched a new career as "Musty Chiffon." Aided by long-time partner Windle Davis, Lamot/Chiffon recorded a dance version of "Jackie Onassis" in 1999. [] The two now operate a bed and breakfast in Hudson, NY as well as a local theater offering entertainment ranging from puppetry to drag shows.
