Harris, Jody / Robert Quine - Escape vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 05-SORC 1009LP
This is absolute one of the greatest, lost ‘arty, no-wave’ treasures of the early 1980s; I wanted to reissue it, but I had to idea who to contact about doing so, so it remained a scheme and a dream. And now it seems to be out in legitimate form.
If the description makes it sounds like it’s for you, then it IS for you. Conditionally gigantically recommended.

“The first reissue of Jody Harris and Robert Quine's Escape, originally released on the New York based No Wave label Infidelity (Lust/Unlust subsidiary) label in 1981. Jody made his name on the NY scene mainly through his work with the legendary avant-funksters, The Contortions, while Robert Quine, who sadly passed away in 2004, was one of the most acclaimed guitarists of his day, noted for his work with Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Lou Reed, Tom Waits, John Zorn, Matthew Sweet, and many more.
The two recorded Escape in Quine's apartment with a whopping budget of $7 (that's what it cost Quine for the tape). The album sees them both engaging in guitar duels over a primitive drum machine, a kind of skeletal minimal-synth with avant-guitar excursions overhead.
Outward-bound yet wholly listenable, the five tracks represent a great lost gem of the NYC underground scene of the day. Recommended to fans of No Wave, Rhys Chatham, Suicide, and the music of Robert Quine and Jody Harris, of course.
This edition also comes with an inner sleeve featuring liner notes from Jody Harris detailing the recording, as well as exclusive photographs of the two.
Remastered by Mikey Young and fully authorized by Jody Harris and Robert's brother, Van. Edition of 600.”
