Bastard Noise

Since I was too busy air-guitarin' out at Floor at Europa/Jucifer at Union Pool on Saturday (6/26), Bastard Noise at Cake Shop just wasn't in the cards for the evening. So of course, there was no other recourse but to make sure to catch the band when they played Death By Audio on Monday (6/28) with Child Abuse. Unfortunately, I missed the openers, but managed to slide in time to catch Child Abuse wreck it with their noise-damaged rock/metal/punk.

After an extended changeover in the ten million degree heat, Bastard Noise took to the stage to pummel the crowd with their signature bass-riffy, noise-punctuated set. Videographer scuffles aside (one decided it would be a good idea to stand front and center on top of a pair of cinder blocks, arms outstretched - he was met with an angry mob), their set was fantastic. Bassist Eric Wood riffs on his bass better than most on the guitar, mixing chords with solos and keeping it thoroughly technical yet brutal. W. T. Nelson adds noise squelches, texture, and synthy elements aplenty from atop his hospital gurney/noise laboratory.

Tons more pics from the show, and some videos are below...

Blood of a Zombie opened the Death by Audio show, followed by Anthony Saunders AKA Explosive Improvised Device.

Both shows were dedicated to Lee Altomare of the Communion, who passed away in April. Lee booked Bastard Noise for both the shows. R.I.P. Lee.

Hey Ricardo,
Thanks for pointing that out again. If anyone is interested, we posted on that fact earlier, along with a statement from The Bastard Noise:

Rock music is one of my biggest passions, because you can really feel something by listening this kind of music. I love especially the sound made by drums.
