Coarse Language - Hearing Sounds

I hadn't studied up on this band's identity, so as I followed the noise up the DDL stairway, I was pleased to see Teenanger's Jon Schouten was delivering the monotone vocals for this noirish party-rock. Alternately hunched over an effects pedal and pacing back and forth in front of the stage, occasionally bumping into the first row of the audience, be brought a soupçon of playful menace that was well matched by the synthsounds generated by the less-animated Gabe Knox up on stage. Somewhere between a Berlin S&M nightclub and a stolen WaxTrax 12", this was a surgingly good time live — though it's also available as a tape for your own private needs.
