"In 1978 a series of punk rock influenced loud noise music concerts was held at New York’s Artists’ Space that led to the Brian Eno-produced recording No New York. This recording was the first attempt to define the no wave sound, documenting James Chance and the Contortions, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Mars and DNA." --Sholem Stein
