STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL #163

LUX
“After a killer demo tape in 2016, Barcelona-based hardcore punk band Lux return with a proper full-length for 2017. Not unlike contemporaries such as Exotica or even Exit Order, Lux fuses UK82 style pogo punk with the interesting rhythms of anarcho punk. The catchy basslines are super loud in the mix and drenched in chorus, bringing a gothy sensibility as well. Listening to this recording, if someone were to tell me that Lux were from the 80s I”m not sure I’d doubt them. Drummer Louis, who has played in No, Good Throb, and a whole slue of other bands, brings a powerful but primitive approach to the drumming, almost tribal, where it basically sounds like he’s muscling through it. The vocals almost have a shrieking, banshee like quality at times, but what makes them distinct is the sense of melody and vocal hooks, which are truly rare in hardcore punk these days.”

PERMISSION
Back from smashing the USA and Canada! “Permission storm onward with new themes of helplessness and disorientation. Ever present in their approach, aesthetic, and musical execution, the whirlwind eight songs dash on top of pogo inducing acceleration, the brief sluggishness of open strings and blister producing snare thuds. A few uncharacteristic moments produce a fine payoff knowing Permission are capable of exactly what we imagined them to be. Fantastic off kilter hardcore punk and absolutely not to be missed live.”

LA LLÀGRIMA
Bringing a more classic contemporary Barcelona sound to the mix with primitive Rudimentary Peni style riffs with heart racing pogo beats and frantic vocals.
