Sex/Vid





I saw Sex/Vid at Beat Kitchen, last night. Let me first say that they blew away any developing preconceived notions that I have about the new wave of current "Retro American Hardcore" bands that is fast growing in popularity. Sex/Vid were fast and loud, heavy, raw, and brutal. Thick-as-fuck sounding, too. The noise/early-industrial connection --- they are on / they now operate --- DOM America (check out the logo in the photo) --- is a weird, added bonus, and I was happy to hear the story, first hand, from Judd.
All of the key hardcore/punk reference points are here -- http://www.dustedmagazine.com/features/700 -- but I swear that I heard Hellhammer and even "Deathcrush"-era Mayhem in the guitars, too.

Thanks to Collin (ex-Intrinsic Action) for the hook-up with the band, and thanks to the band for the kind hospitality!

Now I am kicking myself for missing Total Abuse (yes, their name is what you think it is) a month ago. Ah well... Next time.

Wierd on EVR

Last night, there was a Wierd Records special broadcast on East Village Radio, filled with almost entirely exclusive and unheard (non-LP) tracks. A great two-hour listen (barring the embarrassing shout out after the Sleep Museum track!?!) while sitting at your computer, as I have been doing all day.
