We beg your pardon for the long delay in posting. Dealing with a long and brutal quarantine both in China and now the Inland Empire has worn your scribe out a bit. Thankfully, the music resumes. Enjoy a brutal piece of work by Hüsker Dü this evening.
Thanks kindly to Ralph Schaarschmidt for introducing me to Trigger Cut, a band that sounds like The Jesus Lizard, Die Haut, and a reformed Big Black slowing their sound a bit into something more manageable, yet equally powerful, as their speedy stuff. This has punch.
What a pleasant surprise this is! Former Hüsker Dü and Sugar front man Bob Mould does a quite good cover of a song made famous by The Buzzcocks! It doesn’t get much more power-pop than this.
The Subhumans were one of the few anarcho-punk bands I could tolerate during the late 1980s, and though the music sounds pretty dated today, this album is a pretty good snapshot of what I was enjoying nearly three decades ago.
Going through some old post-punk albums last night, Public Image Ltd‘s name came to mind. Thanks to Enzo Notorio’s good taste, he pointed me to the direction of The Flowers of Romance, which contained this gem.
THIS is how you start a new year! Hüsker Dü at their finest. May we all enjoy a wonderful 2015!
As time is freeing up, I am considering posting press releases on worthy projects. If there are any interesting bands or labels who wish to put up press releases for me to post, do let me know. Please send a sample of the music and a press-release I can easily format into the blog.
