30/04 – GAG (SEATTLE)
SUNDAY 30TH OF APRIL
GAG (Seattle USA) are deeply entrenched in the underground. They demonstrate a rigorously fundamental understanding of hardcore: forbidding thickets of guitar feedback; dour, mid-tempo riffs evocative of dogged trudging and furrowed brows and rhythmic motifs limited to lumbering backbeat and pugilistic punctuation.
They mix mastery and transgression. Perhaps Gag explains its perspective best: Consider one of its finest little maxims, from the 40 Oz. Rule ’90 EP: “Ha ha ha/ Blah blah blah/ Either way you die.” Like the very most resonant sentiments in hardcore, it’s inarguable and essential. And America’s Greatest Hits affirms that Gag guffaws in the face of death.
Sydney post-punk agitators Negative Gears is laden with brazen fury! We would describe these guys as a group of individuals that give you the feeling that they’re looking at the glass not so much half empty, but long since spilt and with no replacement on the horizon.
The type of anguish that makes you either want to scratch your head at the state of the world, or take a full on somersault onto a razor blade, being held up by an anonymous hand from your home country. If you’ve had time for bands such as DIÄT, INSTITUTE and MARBLED EYE, you should be taking 16 minutes out of your life for NEGATIVE GEARS too.
Punks from Sydney who released their first tape three years ago, called Keep Sydney Ugly. Last year the Nurture Or Destroy EP came out on Paradise Daily Records. They sound to us as though it could come straight out of the midwest or Boston hardcore scenes of ’82. Right down to the black on white stamped, messy artwork – complete with spelling error. No one in Australia is doing it like this at the moment. Rapid Dye are the best hardcore/punk group going in Australia at this time, and are up there with modern greats such as Die Gutter Gods, Geld, and SJN.
OTHER STUFF THATS ON.
