A G E N D E R started out as a solo lo-fi punk excursion for Romy Hoffman (Macromantics, Romy) and has since morphed into an all-girl three-piece, known for their intense, fast, tight-knit punk shows. A G E N D E R play a unique blend of schitzo, synthy, paranoid punk. The first record Self (en)titled was entirely written, recorded, played and mixed by Romy Hoffman, with additional mixing and mastering by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control). A G E N D E R's sophomore album Fixations was recorded onto 2" tape, at Head Gap Recording Studio in Melbourne, Australia, by Casey Rice (Liz Phair, Red Red Meat, The Dirty Three). It was co-produced by Rice and Hoffman. The songs on this record are fixations on, and fetishes with femininity, and explore the desperate/disparate nature of queerness, sexuality and obsessive, dysmorphic desire. Side A of the record is a synth-heavy post-punk affair, while Side B is a raw onslaught of classic punk brashness. Some of the songs on this side were recorded in one take. Fixations is a spillage of sexual secrets and the purging of perversions. Limited edition, clear vinyl. 350 gram sleeve with a 12"x12" insert. Matte finish. Includes a download card.
