White Walls - Demo & Live 02.06.2010


I saw this band last night in Chicago. The set was great, the singer has a great voice and a pretty tight group of musicians as well- no sloppiness. I think they played all their songs too. White Walls play a kind of discordant, ugly brew of hardcore, not too different than the recent Sex/Vid and Cult Ritual. Feedback ridden guitars and shrieking, dissonant vocals take place as a muddy tone gravitates with My War style riffing. The demo is a 5 track, 8 minute long ripper (My favorite song being "The Great Excuse". Mosh.), courtesy of the band. The live recording takes 3 new songs, two from the demo, and a cover of Nirvana's "Territorial Pissings". Ohio takes heed to another young hardcore great. I guess they have members of menacing Ohio band Order 66 (Maybe it's the singer?). Demo pictured on the left, Live 02.06.2010 the right. I think the demo is in it's second pressing, email the band for a copy, or something: http://whitewallswhitewalls.blogspot.com

Hey, if you're interested, I do a radio show every Tuesday from 7-9 in Pilsen and it'd be cool if you wanted to come on and guest DJ one night. I enjoy the blog a lot and I know it's a collaborative effort, but you and some of the other people who do FA are more than welcome to come on and play some things. You can check the podcasts here - http://harshdistractions.blogspot.com

My email is StephenCKane@gmail.com

Let me know.

Hey -Kevin:

"guy who runs that blog was a slsk screamo room chatter, dude was all about 90s emo a year or two ago, now moved on to youth attack black metal."

Is that so? What room would that have been and what was my name a year or two ago? I can tell you it wasn't any of the names I have used now.
