Joint Damage — Strike Gently LP
USED. VG+ SORRY STATE RECORDS.Originally known as Joint Damage but forced to change their name because of the threat of legal action, Joint D≠ is a new project from Nick Goode, who you know from his guitar work in NC's Logic Problem and Brain F≠. While Nick's trademark vocal stylings and wall-of-treble guitar sound are familiar, Joint D≠ have a different sound than his other bands thanks to the muscular rhythm section, which is equally comfortable with a Wipers-style propulsive lurch as they are with Gauze-esque stop-on-a-dime changes. Guest vocals from Elise and Bobby from Brain F≠ make this essential for fans of that band, while the music itself makes it essential for anyone who can appreciate ambitious, atmospheric, and dynamic hardcore.
