Ex-Cult/ Mexican Knives/ Brothels Oct 25 at Painted Lady
On the tail of their excellent breakout 2nd LP "Midnight Passenger" on Goner Records, we have a brand new batch of bruisers from Ex-Cult, the Memphis-based punk cyclone that no doubt has laid waste to a town near you recently. Chris Shaw lends a sneering, spitting toughness to the proceedings while the band flays riffs in loose, hairy mosh inducing menace behind him, touching on post-punk, psych sprawl, and early 80s hardcore while remaining beholden to none. They have the power to convert even the most jaded and bored concertgoer into a sweaty mess in the pit, Iʼve seen it first hand punks, scene rats, skaters, skinheads, hardcore kids, druggies - so many disparate groups dig this band itʼs like an MRR cartoon waiting to happen. This too-short collection of adrenal-enhancers are road warriors already - the title trackʼs chants of "trou-blefinds-me" immediately transports me back to their packed and stanky show at The Smell every time I put the record on - the only problem with this sterling batch of sluggers is that itʼs over too quick. - Matt Jones, Castle Face Records
