STATIC SHOCK: CHEW, Nekra, Sniffany and The Nits – London
October 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Hardcore punk from Chicago kicking off their European tour. This is how Iron Lung puts it: “Do you have unexplained scars on your body, piercing eyes, an unquenchable thirst for intricately relentless hardcore punk music, deep compassion for the fate of mankind, a notion toward punishment by stoning or the capability to disrupt electrical appliances? If so, Feeding Frenzy will be your audio guide to unlocking the delicate depths of this confusing planet. Though you may have a keen sense of not belonging to the human race, it will help you to blend in and go unnoticed so you can quietly further your agenda. Enable yourself.”
Riffs as wide as the Old Kent Rd., delivered on top of an icy, blasted Rickenbacker 4003 churning out enough electricity to power most of Bermondsey, big drum rhythms falling on and off the rails of the Southeastern Service at rush hour, and the pure velocity of anger blistering overtop like wind coming across Hilly Fields to tear the roofs off of South London. This music is not in the ether, this is not a notion, or a suggestion, this is live and direct and unrelenting. NEKRA sounds confrontational, like a fight we don’t know we’ve started yet, and like it does not give a shit about us or care that we feel as though deep down we’re all just nice people. Somewhere between the weight of LIFE’S BLOOD and a solid continuation from the moves of punchy hardcore punk of recent years. Moshy, loud, aggressive, uncaring, vicious, London.
