Zine of the Week: No Exit Vol. 5


August 10th, 2012 by

This is a hard hitter. Cool Greek zine featuring interviews with D-takt and Rapunk Records, Amebix, Pyroklast, Deathhammer, Stripmines, a tribute to Void, movie reviews of my second favorite genre: action, featuring one of my favorite action movies, John Woo’s Hardboiled, a photo spread, very well done reviews and a small section of ads in the back. There is also a guest column by our very own newbie coordinator and, no, that is not the (only) reason this is a good zine… No Exit is being created among crumbling antiquated and fatally flawed infrastructure; in a dangerous climate of power grabbing which has created turmoil and dangerous situations with real human consequences. One could argue that strife creates fertile ground for creativity, but that’s easy to say when you are sitting in an easy chair watching “strife” on the news. What I will say is that there is no level of desperation or overwhelming level of nihilism that a weaker set (norms) might succumb to in a similar situation that would snuff out the creativity or love of punk here. The level of crazy shit going on in Greece is real, but rather than an overt expression, this zine is infused by and informed by it, in the interview style to the humor to the reviews. Great zine, good read and a reminder that nothing can keep the punks down.

Record of the Week: NÜ-KLĒ-ER BLAST SUNTAN The Wheel of Fate Is Turning EP


May 29th, 2012 by

Well, punks, here you have it! A kick-fucking-ass EP! I have been laying in wait for something new by these Georgia punks, as I have been into this band since I first heard their Blot Out the Worthless Sun LP and saw them live. These songs are fast and brutal with some truly sick growled mean vokills—the lyrics are not cheery…weird, huh? I guess if I had to break this down to its simplest description, this is dark, fast, crusty, punk with nods to psych rock, black metal and some truly fucked up version of bleak Southern sounds. Their style combines often badly-done genres touched on in punk, yet NÜ-KLĒ-ƏR BLAST SUNTAN rolls them into some truly creative and exciting tracks. The guitar work is fucked up and weird, like this guy learned how to play guitar listening to HAWKWIND on the wrong speed (yeah, everyone has said that about this band, but listen to this for reals!), with a warped record on a turntable belt that was a about to give out. There is order to the song composition here, but not one that punks are used to and all the formulaic shit that keeps these tracks together is obliterated by the unpretentious creativity of this band. These songs will take you to sonic places you didn’t know you even liked. Fuck yeah. Love this. (SPHC)
