Album Review

This Cleveland punk band, whose roster does include some African-Americans, in case that matters, have come up with a fairly individualistic blend of jagged noise and adrenalized hardcore. They combine the amped-up discord of At the Drive-In and Cloak/Dagger with the noise strategies of a prior generation of underground superstars; it's possible to hear echoes of Jon Spencer in their distorted but decidedly rock & roll-rooted guitars, not to mention the strategic deployment of electric organ and handclaps.
