Limited 180gm colored vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve including two bonus tracks and digital download. The record is encased in a mirror and neon gatefold sleeve containing a new large 12pg booklet featuring rare photography by the late great Anya Phillips and newly written text by the legendary James Chance himself. It's just over 35 years since James Chance first assaulted turntables with the juddering jazz punk fusion that permeate the tracks immortalized on Buy. Under the moniker Contortions, explosive saxophonist James Chance aka James White, alongside several other noted New York art scene luminaries, spearheaded a sub-genre dubbed No Wave; a deconstructionist approach to rock 'n' roll that mirrored New York's degradation and dissonance through avant garde compositions and articulated noise, considered by many to be the missing link between modern jazz and punk.
