The album known as 'Escape' was originally released on the New York no wave label Infidelity in 1981, and has never been reissued in any form since. Sorcerer presents a first-time reissue of this very special recording. Remastered by Mikey Young and fully authorised by Jody Harris and Robert's brother, Van, it is reissued in an edition of 600 copies. Jody made his name on the NY scene mainly through his work with the legendary avant-funksters The Contortions, while Robert Quine, who sadly
passed away in 2004, was one of the most acclaimed guitarists of his day, noted for his work with Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Lou Reed, Tom Waits, John Zorn, Matthew Sweet
and many more. The two recorded 'Escape' in Quine's apartment with a whopping budget of $7 (that's what it cost Quine for the tape). The album sees them both engaging in guitar duels over a primitive drum machine, a kind of skeletal minimal-synth with avant-guitar excursions overhead. Outward-bound yet wholly listenable, the five tracks represent a great lost gem of the NYC underground scene of the day. This edition also comes with an inner sleeve featuring liner notes from Jody Harris detailing the recording, as well as exclusive photographs of the two. Recommended to fans of no wave, Rhys Chatham, Suicide and the music of Robert Quine and Jody Harris, of course.
