I just read a book about post punk, and it had a section about them. I am probably going to get no new york as well.

I made a thread of them a while back. From what I have, Buy is a great album. Get that. You'll love it. There was also recently a book put out about No Wave; I saw it in Barnes and Noble if you wanna go look.

I love the Contortions!
They're not my favorite No Wave band, but they're really good.

Yeah I think his name may have been on it. I don't really remember much except I didn't have enough money to buy it.

I liked his interview in that movie Punk: Attitude where he said when the crowd wasn't feeling the band he would go amongst the people and start hitting them. Never heard much musically that tickled my fancy, however.
