James Chance & The Contortions

— The Lanes
NYC no-wave legend James Chance will be coming to the UK as part of a VERY RARE UK tour!
time:07:30
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

It's a very rare occasion and we can't be more excited for this: NYC no-wave legend James Chance and his Contortions will be doing a UK tour next March with a Bristol show at The Lanes.

James Chance & the Contortions

A key figure in No Wave, Chance has been playing a combination of improvisational jazz-like music and punk in the New York music scene since the late 1970s, in such bands as Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, James Chance and the Contortions, James White and the Blacks (as he appeared in the film Downtown 81), The Flaming Demonics, James Chance & the Sardonic Symphonics, James Chance and Terminal City, and James Chance and Les Contortions.

Chance differed from some of his no wave compatriots by possessing (and demanding from his band) a certain level of musical skill and talent. His music can be described as combining the freeform playing of Ornette Coleman with the solid funk rhythm of James Brown, though filtered through a punk rock lens.

Support TBA
