Yes…I know this isn’t a Portland act. Consider it my Valentine’s Day gift to you, dear reader, and then let me explain where it ties into the local scene.
The fine folks at Ba Da Bing! are releasing a split 12″ that features these New Zealand-based noise rock icons on one side (recently unearthed tracks from the band’s EUSA Kills album) and on the other, the jazz-skronk-free rock trio known as Rangda, that features Portlander Sir Richard Bishop tearing it up on guitar.
Until I get a Rangda track to feature, you’re going to have to live with this fuzzed out smear of a track courtesy of Messrs. Russell, Morley, and Yeats. I’m sure you’ll find some way to forgive me for going outside the NW just this once.
