TESTIFY MAY VIDEO PLAYLIST
We start off this month’s video playlist w/ the human cannonball, larger than life personality, staple of the Miami noise scene that is Human Fluid Rot. HFR’s noise expression is a window inside his soul – unhinged, raw, open and ready to fight. I had the pleasure of speaking one-on-one w/ Robbie for a while at this years EndeTymes Fest and a full interview is coming next week, but for now take the pure energy and riot of a Human Fluid Rot show below:
1986 New York Hardcore Kids on Regis. Vintage New York and hardcore kids telling their perspective, while busting a lot of myths about ‘alternative’ lifestyle and culture in the process. ‘If they can’t explain you, people start getting nervous. What are these kids up to, what’s going on with them?’ – Natalie Jacobson
Suburban Lawns – Janitor is one of those records that are so special in its hybrid of punk and experimental pop. McLane’s vocal aesthetic is abstractly beautiful, moving with ripples, she’s alive in her runs & melodies. The west coast postpunk band broke up in ’83, but Janitor is something that could be released today and would be just a refreshing in music’s current climate.
