Smegma is an American experimental noise group formed in Pasadena, California in 1973.[1] Originally part of the Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS) movement of the 1970s, Smegma is one of the few music collectives of that era still active today.[1] Author Richard Meltzer became their vocalist in the late 1990s.[1] The group was included in the Nurse with Wound list and more recently was featured on the cover of the August 2006 edition of The Wire.[2]
