words by Sam Houghton
Combined with the shoddy sound over at Bruar Falls and the lo-fi purges coming out of the German Measles, this show is likely to get out of hand. It’s going to be loud so if that isn’t your thing, you might want to check out those soft, Florida punks Surfer Blood over at The Knitting Factory. But if you are into real, from the streets, arty punk, you’ll find some nasty/Lou Reed melodies hidden beneath the heavy reverb of the Measles. The numbers are all marching anthems that should lead to some serious moshing. Think of a more dragging Mission of Burma (“Reach for my Revolver”): sloppy rock with a sweeping and dipping bass, layers of noisy guitars and a sort of off kilter, mumbling yet resilient singing.
They play at 10 PM Friday night at Bruar Falls
