Pixies-reminiscent, they are, in voice and twisted subject matter and punk disregard and controlled fury. Might fly off the rails at any moment. A little Sonic Youth, but more depraved. Sensually super alive. Mmmmm, distortion.
The show was awesome. The band laid it on the line, even though there weren't a lot of people there. It's hard not to react in a violent way to this music. It's so in-your-face and uncomfortably earnest. Might as well peel your face off. Every decision turns to goo. There is only sound and the id and things you don't wanna know about yourself.
