Well I'll be damned, guess who's got new product out? James Chance and his latest version of the Contortions. It's been thirty years since his last studio LP and he doesn't seem to have lost a step. To the contrary, it seems like his age finally caught up with his vision. I'm digging this one, which is the only thing I've heard so far. If you're not familiar with him, there's some of his older stuff with the original Contortions at the bottom.
