Buy - James Chance and the Contortions (1979)
Wikipedia - "Buy is the debut studio album by American no wave band James Chance and the Contortions. It was released in 1979 through ZE Records. All About Jazz critic Trevor MacLaren wrote: 'Through the anger and aggression Chance made a solid record that had a sound like nothing before or since,' describing the album as 'a great disc that sounds as original and cutting edge as when it was released'. Dean McFarlane of Allmusic stated: 'His hybrid of free jazz sax blowing and agitated funk takes the contortions up a notch from the four tracks the band contributed to the Eno-produced No New York compilation.'"
