Jody Harris/Robert Quine - Escape LP
Originally released in 1981 on the No Wave imprint, Infidelity, this underground classic finally sees reissue. Jody Harris played guitar in the Contortions (among others), and Robert Quine is well-known for his work with Richard Hell, Lou Reed, Tom Waits, Matthew Sweet, etc. Recorded in Quine's apartment, Escape sees the two engaging in guitar duels over a minimal-synth/drum-machine patter, combining guitar hysterics with a kind of Suicide-like hum. Newly remastered with iner notes from Harris and a previously-unpublished photo by Laura Levine, it comes in an edition of 500 copies.
