Genre/s: Noise Rock, Hardcore Punk
For Fans Of: Pissed Jeans, Stretchheads, Homostupids, Slices
Punk is well and truly at its best when it's spewing out of the deepest, most fucked up crevasses of the human mind, and lo and behold 1/4 dead are here to spew that kind of fucked up all over you. The self described 'weirdo freak noise punk' band delivers just that, throwing chaotic guitar solos/spazz outs that would make Greg Ginn blush into the proverbial blender with utterly deranged, batshit insane vocals and sleazy, off kilter riffing. This is the four piece's first release, and they've already established a pretty nuanced sound, while paying tribute to some of their fellow noise rock/punk peers at the same time. A solid demo all in all, and one that's not afraid to bare it's ugly teeth and wear it as a badge of honour.
