Anwar Sadat

Anwar Sadat, the Louisville band not the Egyptian president, are a heavy, discordant post-punk trio with short, angry songs that never forget the "punk" in "post-punk." Think Big Black/The Jesus Lizard meets Wire, and you might get an idea. Or for something more modern, they also sound like a crazier Iceage. Their most recent album, Gold, came out last year via Sophomore Lounge -- it's 8 songs in under 15 minutes, and can be streamed in full below or downloaded (name your price) at bandcamp.

The band is currently on a tour which wraps up in NYC this weekend with two shows, both with excellent lineups. FIrst, they'll hit Bowery Electric on Saturday (3/29) with Patrick Higgins (of Zs), Algis Kizys (ex-Swans) (who will be joined by Norman Westberg [currently of Swans], Vincent Signorelli [Unsane, Foetus] and Lynn Wright) and Fangs (aka Sonic Youth/Swans producer Martin Bisi joined by members of Phantom Family Halo and Eula). Tickets for that show are available.

Then they play Death by Audio on Sunday (3/30) with noise crew Vaz, Greg Fox's insane drum-driven Guardian Alien, and shoegazy punks The Library Is On Fire.

All remaining dates are listed, with the LP stream and a live video, below...

Anwar Sadat's not really dead since they found a way to remember him.

Anwar Satat is an anagram of Saddam Hussein.

"You might get an idea". No, you're supposed to tell me, not make me guess. Aren't you the writer?

I think that 11:05 meant that you should go listen to them. At least I hope that's what he meant.
