James Chance and the Contortions "Buy"

Here's something a little different. One of the original punk jazz groups of the New York No Wave scene, the Contortions were led by saxophonist James Chance, aka James White. Their first recorded appearance, credited solely as the Contortions, was on the 1978 compilation, No New York. The following year, two albums were issued almost simultaneously on the ZE label, Buy the Contortions (an extreme jazz-punk LP) and Off White.

This was out in 1979, and will definately blow your mind if you're into weird and highly innovative music.
