He’s a Sax Maniac! JAMES WHITE AND THE BLACKS classic OUT NOW!

The NYC No Wave legend returns to record store shelves everywhere! Long out of print, it’s only right JAMES CHANCE (WHITE) was back where he belongs, this time in the shape of a lovingly packaged reissue of his 1982 lp masterpiece – Sax Maniac.

Currently at the forefront of the popular music conciousness, fresh from a guest performance with Franz Ferdinand on prime time US televisions ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’, this fantastic Redux version of one of JAMES most revered records showcases his anarchic saxophone and deconstructionist approach to rock ‘n’ roll through avant garde arrangements and a blending of contemporary jazz with a true punk ethos.

To go alongside the music are four incredible photographic prints of JAMES CHANCE and Anya Philips by Edo Bertolgio, the director of the now classic movie Downtown 81, which starred Jean-Michel Basquiet and a memorable performance by the JAMES WHITE AND THE BLACKS era band heard here on this record. Drenched in an infinite cool, Sax Maniac is a true document of downtown New Yorks’ underground music and art scene in the early 1980’s.
