No New York
'No New York' is considered to be the definitive album of the No Wave movement. The Brian Eno produced compilation documents four groups from New York's experimental underground scene - DNA, Contortions, Mars, and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks. Stemming from the post-punk and experimental rock scenes, No Wave embraced noise, dissonance, angular rhythms and atonality. Acts as varied as Sonic Youth, Swans, ESG, Lizzy Mercier Descloux and Liquid Liquid were also spawned from the movement.
