Anyone else listen to these guys? They're absolutely awesome. I'm just getting into 'em; I have a few live tracks, plus their debut album "Buy," and it's all really excellent.

They're part of the no wave movement, and I didn't know where else to bring 'em up. Designed to Kill and Contort Yourself are both great tracks if you wanna go listen:

James Chance and the Contortions

I'm listening to them now, and they're pretty damn awesome. They remind me of The Minutemen a little.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

They're almost as awesome as Ian Dury and the Blockheads...

Almost.

James gets points for slapping people in the audience that weren't dancing...

It's kind of a dick move, but it's a funny concept.

Can you recommend me anymore good No Wave bands? I'm pretty interested in it after listening to The Contortions. Plus it's just such a bad ass name for a genre.

Damn, this is seriously awesome and the exact direction that I want to go with my music.

Dude! NO!!

I was gonna be the one to bring back vaguely Punkish Sexy Disco Dance Pop. Once I got a band together.

You can't do that!

Cool...crazy noise music It's funny too that I jam with a guy called James Chance, and I'm pretty sure he would love this stuff.

The No New York compilation, Bush Tetras, The Swans.

Some early, early Sonic Youth.

ah! Good idea. I read about the No New York compilation, didn't Brian Eno put it together? Oh whatta man!
James Chance makes me even prouder to play saxophone!
