Gentlemen - Sex Tape

'Sex Tape'
Gentlemen
2013

Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Punk, Noise Rock
For Fans Of: Stickmen With Ray Guns, Homostupids, Slices, Total Abuse, Cuntz

I stumbled across this band (and in turn the fucking awesome record label they're on, Homeless) yesterday, and suffice to say I was very impressed. Gentlemen are a band who know they're a bunch of weirdos, and absolutely revel in it. Taking the template set out but many-a noise rock tinged punk band before them, Gentlemen's lo-fi garage-y take on the genre centers on their sleazy and borderline menacing riffs sound like a pub rock band gone horribly, horribly wrong while some madman howls, screams and gurgles into a microphone. Sex Tape is an absolutely manic, caustic beast of a release, and I'm really glad to see the Australians are still playing some of the best noise rock on the planet. Listen to this and carve swastikas into your forehead or somethin'.
