Soon after their 1978 debut on the Brian Eno-produced No New York, a compilation that defined the No Wave scene, James Chance's group Contortions had already evolved – getting sharper, tighter and just plain faster. Despite the loss of keyboardist Adele Bertei and bassist George Scott (who refused to sign a new contract demanded by Chance and his then partner, band manager Anya Phillips) Contortions  were firing on all cylinders, and their first full-length album, 1979's Buy, is a marvel of hot-wired energy.
