Since the late ’80s, Mudhoney – the Seattle-based foursome whose muck-crusted version of rock, shot through with caustic wit and battened down by a ferocious low end – has been a high-pH tonic against the ludicrous and the insipid.
Thirty years later, the world is experiencing a particularly high-water moment for both those ideals. But just in time, vocalist Mark Arm, guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison, and drummer Dan Peters are back with Digital Garbage, a barbed-wire-trimmed collection of sonic brickbats.
Pissed Jeans have been making a racket for 13 years, and on their fifth album, Why Love Now, the male-fronted quartet is taking aim at the mundane discomforts of modern life—from fetish webcams to office-supply deliveries. Pissed Jeans’ gutter-scraped amalgamation of sludge, punk, noise, and bracing wit make the band—Korvette, Brad Fry (guitar), Randy Huth (bass) and Sean McGuinness (drums)—a release valve for a world where absurdity seems in a constant battle trying to outdo itself.
Art Gray Noizz Quintet
Spearheaded by twisted Australian guitar legend STU SPASM, THE ART GRAY NOIZZ QUINTET was originally formed to play an afterparty for the NYC premiere of Eric Robel's AMREP documentary THE COLOR OF NOISE. Once was not enough, and THE ART GRAY NOIZZ QUINTET soon staggered to the streets. The fifth arm of the Quintet became an ever-rotating slot, a wildcard ranging from horn sections to scrap metal percussion. THE ART GRAY NOIZZ QUINTET continute to cut a sleazy, heavy, swinging swath through the New York music scene.
