The follow-up to our highly acclaimed New York Noise compilation delves even deeper into the exciting and diverse range of music that sprang from downtown Manhattan's fertile community of bohemian artists and night people in the late seventies and early eighties! Featuring the greatest and rarest punk funk, no wave, drone rock, spazz jazz, mutant disco, and more! This fantastic compilation charts the hidden links between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of this vibrant underground scene through extensive sleeve notes and archival photos! Amoungst the treats in store for you in this jewel box of creative delights is a wicked hi-energy percussive stomper from Pulsallama; visceral guitar freak-outs from Red Transistor and Glenn Branca; two little-known leftfield disco not disco gems from cult hero Arthur Russell; tribal wonky wonders from Mofungo, Don King, Jim Jarmusch's Del Byzanteens, and Jill Kroesen; punk funk action from Certain General and The Glorious Strangers, drone rock bliss from the one and only Sonic Youth, and a truly fearsome guitar orchestra assault from Rhys Chatham! YOU NEED THIS COMPILATION!
