Robert Quine playing with Jody Harris, who appeared on this blog before as a guitar player on James White and the Blacks' LP. Harris been with James White/Chance from the beginning, appearing on other Contortions records, including the notorious No New York LP; he also played with other "downtown" bands and personalities - Golden Palominos, John Zorn, Lydia Lunch, and his own instrumental band the Raybeats.
This one, Escape, is quite experimental - it's more of two guys fooling around in the studio while the tape is rolling kind of record, somewhat like Fripp's No Pussyfooting stuff. Quine himself called the first track, 13-minute-long Flagpole Jitters, "intentionally abrasive" or some such. It sounds like something a college-radio DJ would put on to broadcast his coolness credentials while he's out with a reefer.
