New Blood! TECHIE BLOOD, MORROW, HOMOSUPERIOR, LUBRICANT, and BIG BITE


April 21st, 2016 by

“New Blood” is our weekly feature spotlighting new bands from around the world! See below for info on how to submit. Now, check out some killer new shit…

Band name:
TECHIE BLOOD

Date & location formed:
I formed it in the East Bay as a recording project. It was gonna be a split with the legendary JUNKYARD DOG of Alamo, california, but I decided to turn it into a full band. It was originally called Leather Informant, but I knew I could have a stupider band name.

Reason for forming:
I thought the recordings were gonna be lame but they weren’t so it became a band.

What are your lyrics about?
The songs are about aggression and anxiety, just a way to vent and stuff.

How would you describe your sound?
Sonically speaking, I want it to have that same cyberpunk-future sound that Napalm Death’s “Scum” has. How it sounds like it was recorded in a giant metal cube or something dystopian and bizarre like that, if that makes any sense. Listen to Scum with that mindset and you’ll totally feel me. It should sound like the book “Neuromancer” or something. but musically speaking, all I really listen to is Steely Dan and Christopher Cross so I don’t know why it sounds like it does.

What’s in the future for this band?
We have a new tape, it’s re-recordings of old songs and three new songs, and it’s pretty good. I’m also in the works of making a little video documentary about punk bands I like in California, most notably Slobber from the East Bay, Chain Hex from Santa Rosa and the Torpedoes from Merced. So that’s been a lot of my efforts in punk music which has slowed Techie Blood down a bit, but we’re all hoping to keep putting out music and play around more. We wanna go to Texas or Vancouver or really anywhere that isn’t the Bay Area right now.

Links and contact info:

I’m in the process of uploading all california punk music of note to a youtube page I run, called Guy Fieri Official. I am however not Guy Fieri, sorry. So you can find it there.

I also uploaded the tape to a bandcamp account called ledzeppelinofficial.bandcamp.com (also not Led Zeppelin because that band is awful). I didn’t intend on anyone to find it but people did so I guess I will also put stuff up there so you can download it.

MORROW

Date & location formed:
We formed about two years ago
in London, England.

Reason for forming:
I have an obsession with melodic crust and cellos and wanted to revisit a style of music I missed playing a great deal. I spent
about two years trying to find people to make this project possible, formed other bands in the meantime, but Dave was enthusiastic about the idea and decided to take on writing the music and playing all of the instruments whilst i handled
vocals, lyrics and artwork. We
were joined by our friend Nicole on Cello who recorded her parts
in California, and guest vocals from friends all over the world.

What are your lyrics about?
It has a story, its kind of a post civilisation observation of human cultures living in a world reclaimed by nature, in the skeletons of formers cities, and dense forests. Its about language, the ideas of religion and belief. Earthy visceral stuff!

How would you describe your sound?
Emo crust? Epic crust? Something like that. We’re definitely influenced by stuff like Remains of the day and Madame Germen, and my former band Fall of Efrafa.

What’s in the future for this band?
We have an LP coming out on Halo of flies/Chaos Rural/ Alerta Antifascista. We have a full band now so we hope to be playing shows in the near future!

Band name:
HOMOSUPERIOR

Date & location formed:
December 31st 2014 in the basement of The Rocketship (RIP) in Washington, DC.

Reason for forming:
Josh: I wanted to combine my love for shock drag and my disgust with the conservative gay scene in DC. Things needed to be shaken up a bit, so I made a FB post about starting a band (goal: Toiletboys crossed with Limp Wrist) and KC and Kit almost immediately responded. We recruited Anderson shortly thereafter, and everything fell into place pretty quickly. Everyone was on the same page from the beginning.

What are your lyrics about?
Queer identity, dysphoria, hypocrisy, addiction, & 90s mall culture.

How would you describe your sound?
Snotty & rough.

What’s in the future for this band?
We’re doing a Memorial Day weekend tour, visiting super queer-friendly places like North Carolina & West Virginia. Hoping to play some more shows & festivals. We applied to Fed Up Fest in Chicago. And eventually, we’ll finish a couple more songs and put out an album.

Band name:
L U B R I C A N T

Date & location formed:
Singapore, early 2015.

Reason for forming:
Our bassist is from Athens, landed a job here in a university, got in contact with some punks, hung out, went to shows, and we decided to form a band. None of us have played in a band together before this. Also, for the love of Hardcore and abrasive punk music.

What are your lyrics about?
Anxiety, subjugation, submission, depression, violence from the state and the higher power.

How would you describe your sound?

What’s in the future for this band?

BIG BITE

Date & location formed:
Winter of 2015 in Seattle, WA.

Reason for forming:
I recorded the demo while living in the bay area with intentions to make it happen as a full band when I moved to the northwest. After living in Seattle for eight months we finally had our first practices.

What are your lyrics about?
The lyrics are all over the place but the general theme is seeking freedom.

How would you describe your sound?
Our sound is like.. I don’t know.. I guess kind of an SST vibe, but I don’t think we do that justice. Mostly I just wanted to be in a band that had pop riffs and hardcore riffs and this is what came of it.

What’s in the future for this band?
Putting out a 7″ single with Painter Man Records. west coast tour with Angel Dust and Gag in June. Full length record on Pop Wig sometime next year, probably.
