Adult Creativity Of The Bovine Kind
Goddamn. Two brilliant shows this weekend - ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead performing Source Tags & Codes in its entirety (plus a full second set) on Friday night, then the raucous pop sunniness of Dollar Bar last night. I'm a bit sore and sorry though - its my first weekend without work for what seems like forever, so I went a bit hard. Need to make the most of this freedom though, and Creative Adult has landed to blast the cobwebs well and truly out of the ears. The San Fran outfit eschew the garage psychedelia of many of their hometown counterparts to instead power through brutality, atonal aggression and sonic athleticism - this is hardcore by the no wave set, as breathtakingly unpredictable as it is wantonly abrasive. Bulls In The Yard is a four track Q-tip to the urethra, dipped in liquid PCP and desperate sweat - aural jumper leads to the loins. Plug in, rush, consume, glow.
