JODY HARRIS & ROBERT QUINE
Cata No: SORC1009
|The album known as Escape was originally released on the New York No Wave label in 1981, and
has never been reissued in any form since. Sorcerer presents a first-time reissue of this very
special recording this May.
Remastered by Mikey Young and fully authorised by Jody Harris and Robert’s brother, Van, it is to
be reissued in an edition of 600 copies. 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
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.
Recommended to fans of NO WAVE, RHYS CHATHAM, SUICIDE and the music of ROBERT
QUINE and JODY HARRIS, of course.
