Boomkat Product Review:
New, reshuffled 2016 edition of the exemplary no wave, post-punk and punk-funk compilation - now out-of-print for 13 years. 2LP with free download, exclusive photography and extensive historical and contextual sleevenotes.
“This is the new 2016 edition of Soul Jazz Records' long out of print first New York Noise collection, Dance Music From The New York Underground 1978-82. New York Noise is the story of the intersection between experimental dance music and art in downtown New York.
This ground-breaking release gave rise to a series of three albums featuring the likes of Snatch, Glenn Branca, Rhys Chatham, Sonic Youth, Ut, Jim Jarmusch and many more downtown figures as well as a deluxe photography book that featured everyone from David Byrne to Madonna (now out-of-print).
This new 2015 edition features classic New York post-punk, punk funk and no wave tracks from Arthur Russell/Dinosaur L, James White and the Contortions, The Theoretical Girls, Mars, Konk, Material, Bush Tetras, Lizzy Mecrier Descloux as well as new tracks by Alan Vega (Suicide), Chain Gang and Implog.”
