REMAINING TICKETS ONSALE FROM ALL GOOD TICKET AGENTS ON FRIDAY [28th Sept]
An EXTREMELY rare UK visit from James Chance Official sees him and the legendary Contortions visit Brighton on what promises to be an amazing night at The Haunt.
James Chance and The Contortions were the funkiest no wave band by a city mile, as their four tracks on the Brian Enoproduced No New York comp prove.
On Contortions' devastating 1979 debut LP, Buy, Chance and company translated James Brown's dance moves into tornadoes of scabrous, fractured funk that mainlines nihilism.
Chancewhen he's not shredding his larynxskrees like a maniac on his sax. The latest Contortions album, The Flesh Is Weak, finds Chanceagainst great oddsnearly in no wave peak form. Most of its songs move with panther-like agility, bolstered by bold brass flourishes and punctuated by Chance's electrocuted shrieks. Plus, there's a poignant cover of Gil Scott-Heron's "Home Is Where the Hatred Is." Chance has mellowed some, but he's still sharper than most cats half his age.
There's no doubt this will be an INCREDIBLE show - so grab your tickets now.
