Teenage Jesus & The Jerks 1979 debut album has received a long overdue vinyl reissue, the album was originally recorded during the late 1970s, after no wave pioneer Lydia Lunch met saxophonist James Chance. She began setting her angry and disjointed poetry to anti-music, founding her ground-breaking band Teenage Jesus and The Jerks with Lunch’s shouted lyrics matched by her non-conventional use of electric guitar. The group’s self-titled debut album is a fast and furious affair, produced by Robert Quine (Richard Hell & The Voidoids / Lou Reed) with future Nick Cave drummer Jim Sclavunos on bass and Bradley Field on minimalist percussion.
