James Chance was a key figure in No Wave, yet as a musician he harbored aspirations that were anathema to the movement's insistence on destroying all music. This live document from 1980 might capture The Contortions at their most manic and chaotic, but after a few listens, Chance's unique vision of merging hard funk, free jazz and avant-rock weirdness begins to emerge. The most striking example of that just might be the opening rendition of Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough"; despite the song's disheveled appearance, the groove underneath is wiry and dangerously disciplined.
