Throughout the course of the early ’80s, Russell released a number of singles under his own name and as/with Loose Joints, Lola, and Indian Ocean. In 1982, Russell and William Socolov founded the Sleeping Bag label, which would become an influential independent rap label with releases from Mantronix and EPMD. However, the label’s inaugural release was another Russell-affiliated project, Dinosaur L’s 24 24 Music LP. The album’s “Go Bang” was released in the 12” format with a remix from François Kevorkian that also played a significant role in the New York City club scene. Russell’s involvement with dance music fizzled out in the latter half of the ’80s, but he continued to work in avant-garde circles until his death in 1992.
