DROPOUTS - INTO FOAM (2012)




















One of those bands that you say to yourself, damn that drummer is good.
Rapid-fast at times. But not always. Complex throughout...with lots of changes and fills.
Like I said..damn.
For the most part, Dropouts are heavy, and loud, hardcore style noise, but the songs weave from that to slower, almost 70s rock jams and stoner guitar parts, with some underlying math structures.
This is from 2012. Not sure what's up with them these days. I'm digging this. You should too.

THE JESUS LIZARD - PEEL SESSION (1991-92)




















Did you know that David Yow can take a piss while walking and not get any on his pants.
He said it’s great if you have to pee and you also happen to be on a really long, straight walk, because you can look back and see the duration of your journey.
Your welcome.
Oh and 8 songs here. You can pee while you listen to them.

SO STRESSED - THE UNLAWFUL TRADE OF GRECO-ROMAN ART (2015)




















Here's a little ditty for ya...some great stuff from a band called So Stressed from Sacramento, CA.
They play solid, buzzsaw ripping and post-hardcore influenced noise rock assault.
Pretty cleaned up and polished sounding, but ready to hand you your daily ass whooping.

PIGS - LIVE AT THE BLACK CAT (2013)




















Live shit Fridays. And also since I've been on a Pigs kick.
This is a decent sounding show. Its a little rough, but kinda takes you back to the days of bootleg tapes.
C'mon its fucking punk rock, its not supposed to sound perfect.
Good set. 39 minutes. All songs but one come off You Ruin Everything.
Oh and again, I'm lazy. This is one long track.

PIGS - GAFFE (2013)




















3 song EP from NYCs PIGS!
Features Dave Curran from Unsane and Jim Paradise from Player’s Club. Sounds alot like Unsane.
So if you like your noise rock sounding like Unsane, then this should tickle that noise-rock funny bone.

STAR PIMP - TREASURE TRAIL (1992)




















Deranged mid 90s noise rock from Star Pimp.
Experimental, weird, bizarro and fucked up. In a good way of course...
Kinda similar to Steel Pole Bath Tub and Alice Donut, only with female vocals.
