For those who think the no-wave/punk-funk sound of the late-1970s/early-1980s was exclusive to New York City, INSATIABLE serves as a reminder that Philadelphia had a slice of the pie as well. The Philly-based Stickmen were a hyper-kinetic avant-funk outfit very much in the mode of James Chance & the Contortions. They combined the twitchy, angular feel and neurotic gestalt of the burgeoning new wave scene with the party atmosphere and funky rhythms of James Brown and Sly Stone. This disc compiles everything the quintet ever released, and gives fans of Chance and the New York scene a sharp history lesson. The Stickmen were perhaps even more intense, skewed, and polyrhythmic than their East Coast brethren. Peter Baker's crazed vocals bounce manically off B. A. L. Stack's gloriously cheap organ, Chuck Mattern's queasy trumpet, and the amphetamine attack of the rhythm section. The overall effect is that of a funky jack-in-the-box whose lid refuses to open. Decades later, it's still exciting to hear the repercussions.
