Album Review

Shame Fantasy II collects the three-quarter hours of recorded output of the short-lived Pink & Brown two-man costume noise-rock extravaganza. Guitarist Pink is John Dwyer (Ohsees, Dig That Body Up, Up Its Alive, the Coachwhips, Zeigenbock Kopf) and drummer Brown is Jeff Rosenberg (also ofLumen, the Young People). Together they make a bustle and skree spit drum screamfest worthy of Dwyer's mid-'90s Providence, RI background. The CD compiles three sessions and is arranged in reverse chronological order, compiling five previously unreleased tracks recorded by Dave Broekema of Numbers, five tracks from a split with Death Drug, and Final Foods, their full-length LP. Unsurprising, this makes for a 22-song album spiralling from razor-crazed grooves and noise to sludgy, sometimes amateurish experimentation.

Because the two lived in separate cities, and toured with scene makers like the Bolt, Pink & Brown never reached the same acclaim as their contemporaries, but still had an explosive live presence and discernibly unique sound in the noise rock pantheon.


Genre: Alternative

Guitarist John Dwyer and drummer Jeff Rosenberg go under the monikers Pink and Brown, respectively, for their intense noise duo. This wrecking crew may be more traditionally structured and accessible than a group like Lightning Bolt, but their disturbed rants and raucous cacophony is equally as destructive. Hailing from the same San Francisco scene that produced such no-wave acts as Erase Errata and Numbers, Pink and Brown formed in 2001 and released their debut CD Final Foods on Toyo Records. In...
