SEDIMENT CLUB, THE
"'The Sediment Club are a 4-piece No Wave group from New York. Their debut EP puts a modern and youthful spin on familiar post-punk tropes, bringing to mind the deranged and bizarrely catchy innovations of the Contortions and early Pere Ubu. Four songs filled with existential ranting, squirrel-y atonal guitars, and spastic keyboard stabbing atop hypnotic bass lines and propulsive drums. Recorded at N.Y. Hed Studios by Ivan Julian. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies.' - Softspot. Excellent new 7" by four 17-18 year old NYC kids, whoes live set includes covers of the Residents and Rocket From The Tombs. Produced and mastered by Ivan Julian of the Voidoids, the father of singer/guitarist Austin (his mother being Cynthia Sley of the Bush Tetras). Highly recommended!"
"SoftSpot has delved back into the post-punk archives and unearthed another virtually unheard gem. Our first full-length LP features the recordings of Kebab, a short-lived quartet of punk-minded Belgian youths. Inspired by the Crass Records DIY mentality, the burgeoning UK art-punk scene, and their own boredom, Kebab combined anti-political punk diatribes with sharp guitars, plodding basslines, synth gurgles, and spastic electronic percussion. The result is an aggressively sparse take on post-punk that remains fresh and visceral sounding today. Side A compiles all their known studio recordings, including the sought-after
Life It's a Joke
7" from 1982. Side B features select tracks from their original demo tape, recorded in 1981 and limited to only 30 copies. All tracks have been remastered from the best available sources, and are presented on black vinyl in a full-size poster package containing lyric sheet, rare photos, and a vintage interview with the band."
