Bugs And Rats - s/t - New LP
Voila ! Surveillance Investments is proud to present the brand new self-titled 12'' from long-standing Quincy-MA bred Bugs and Rats. A trio of life-long friends steadily garnering idolization and appreciation after a decade-plus of hard-playing and bodily-deprecation. Here is their 3rd LP appearance that hones in on their distinctive screeching noise-punk sound. Developing that further, on display is a black metal tinge with blasted beats and blown recordings while conversely delivering on some of their catchiest pop-laced rollers yet.
Rightfully associated with fellow Boston noise-rock contemporaries like Guerrilla Toss via their high-energy and experimentation (Kassie from the G.Toss even makes a guest appearance on two tracks!), Bugs and Rats in contrast also takes a much more direct and less deconstructive route to the rock and roll vein, coming from a full-fledged hardcore background that drips with proto-grunge adoration. The result is like New England's own home-bred feedtime that recognizes its local-MA Kilslug/Upsidedown Cross/Sickness/Nightstick spiritual sludge-ancestry. Huge riffs, demented vocals, and plenty of snot to go around.
