Caged Animal have the best (un)released demo of 2012. Fact. Yadokai features a member who is also in Caged Animal. Fact. Put these facts together and you have three songs that are hella tight. SF weirdo punks hardcore. For those times you want to throw burning bicycles through mountains of Lamborghinis? Yeah. You know what I'm talking about. Or when you realize twenty eight teeth isn't enough? Because you want to chew through the neck of all the police? Yeah. That's definitely something that you've thought before. And most importantly, when you're just on the verge of pumping your blood through all the dead people that you've ever loved??? Yadokai's got you. So much adrenaline and feral velocity. Werewolf vocal hardcore. Rip into the flesh of an unjust world. Yadokai. Fact.

Everybody loves The Men. Old dude rockers. Young punk rockers. They're a band for rockers of all ages. So naturally when they played The Smell I had to attend. Here's an interview with their drummer Rich Samis. Thanks to Madison for the camera operating and editing.

Members of Jud Jud and Look Back And Laugh??? Yeah, like something that fucking sick could ever happen. OH WAIT. IT DID. They're called No Statik. YEAH, NO STATIK. And they're a California hardcore band that's just beyond sick. Yeah, talking ultra mega sick. Take for example their new album, Everywhere You Aren't Looking. The b-side is just the sickest. Fast hardcore for fans of fast hardcore. So you get it. But why don't they get it??? There's not enough talk about this band. There should be more talk about No Statik. Please talk about No Statik. Okay, now let's flip the record to the a-side. Fourteen minutes of freaky ass horror isolation ambience? It's dark, man. I'm talking scary dark. Like some intro to some black metal cassette hand numbered out of twenty nine. So pick your side. Or just play both at the same time. Hella modern like. Just whatever you do, make sure to talk about No Statik. It's a great conversation.

Punk freaks, freaks of the punk. Bathtubs and bathtubs of dirty skin slabs? Sharp rhythm with razor riffs just filling you up with someone else's butthole? Yeah, that's The Future Is Wide Open. A full length of someone else's butthole filling up your butthole. Walls just bringing the weird. Hardcore for the freaks. Freaks with the buttholes. Buttholes filled with even more buttholes. Total freak wizard misfit hardcore. Basically, you have the dudes who used to be in the sickest hardcore band. So they're hella intense and in your face. But now they're butthole freaky. It's an experience that could only come from Walls. Between the walls. On the walls. Outside the walls. Sorta like wading through bodies of water with all the lights off. And you feel that slimyness on the bottom of your feet. Just turn the volume up and mosh a little bit. Mosh a little bit and scream at the mirrors with your barking butthole. Only then do you truly have a recipe. A recipe for a butthole filled with The Future Is Wide Open. Give me a table for one. Because I'm god damn hungry!
