NEW YORK NOISE – various



Product Description

Working as a companion compilation to, Soul Jazz Records equally great UK focused, ‘In The Beginning There Was Rhythm’ this album brings together a collection of hard to find gems from New York based post-punk bands. The compilation covers sounds which range from the nihilistic chaos of original No-Wave bands such as Mars and DNA, through the detuned sonic symphonies of Theoretical Girls and Glenn Branca and onto the Punk – Funk sound of bands like the Bloods and The Bush Tetras. Standout tracks include the stripped down minimal bass heavy sound of ESG, on the track ‘You Make No Sense At All’, and the turbulent saxophone spasms of James Chance and the Contortions ‘Contort Yourself’.
