At first i thought that this could be the soundtrack to "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
When I saw them for the first time in Holloween in I was kind of left dumbfounded. It was loud, though not terrible fast, and introvertedly violent in a way that transfixed me. Paul Sanders beat and strangled the guitar as if he were trying to silence it, perplexed that all of his clumsy grappling seemed to make it scream and squeal louder and more vociferously.
Paul Ericson's bass had so much drive and sound splitting distortion and volume that all the hair on my body fell out and my organs collapsed and then, as the corner of my mouth curled up into what looked like a smile, I soiled myself.
After the show, I limped up to the band, all shiny and bald in strange places with trousers that needed to be changed and I thanked them. With graphics, as usual for Amrep bands. The songs still handle like like an old El Camino: heavy, lumbering and difficult to stop, with hair and some blood wedged in the grill and something unimaginable in the trunk. Into The Vortex This song is from a different record but I was at this show.
Posted by Brooklyn Bill at AM 7 comments:. I used to love anything that sounded like this. Heavy as fuck but meticulously structured, like an epileptic who orchestrates their own spastic convulsions.
The Drive Like Jehu's, the hose. I could never get past "Straight To Zero" without punching out my stereo, my roommate and my fish monger. I'd like to see you do the same.

Friday, July 18, Helium. A few weeks ago I had a brief relapse into a long occurring crush on Mary Timony. I mean, she just seems so vulnerable but at the same time, unstable and dangerous. The kind of girl who holds a knife to your throat while you're sleeping and doesn't even tell you about it.
