STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL #182
The Static Shock xmas do goes into a second day with:
The jewel in the NWOBHC crown. Pummelling hardcore punk that incorporates metallic elements drawn from the near and far reaches of mid 80s international hardcore and thrash to the simplicity of domestic HC pestilence. Blended with a great finesse that is both tasteful and potent - which seems to be a rare feat to attain this day and age, Seek further advice on Game's sound via the precedent set by Gastunk, Celtic Frost, Sacrilege, Death Side, and the Execute. Members of Arms Race, Fucked Up, Career Suicide, Shrapnel, Violent Reaction and Subdued.
Last show of their European tour for 'The Rhythm Of Brutality' MLP! By now people know that most of the music coming out of Olympia WA is important in some way, be it artistically or politically. PHYSIQUE manages to hit both points by channeling the classic DISCHARGE/Kawakami (RIP) model of poetic, simplistic sloganeering and carefully crafted, noise fueled D-Beat punk music. "Punk Life Is Shit" exists to fight the nightmarish reality of inept politicians, capitalism, colonialism, gender struggles, Jesus useless Christ and impending nuclear war that we all live in. Current and ex members of Electric Chair, GLOSS, Beta Boys and Xylitol.
Queer hardcore punk from London. Cis-Het Free Youth.
Early 80s American-style Hardcore (Negative Approach, The Fix, Poison Idea, YDI etc.) brought to you by members of S.H.I.T., Arms Race, Game, Subdued and others.
