!!! Michigan Fest 2002 Live
i think what’s true for wolf eyes is true for !!!: both seem stilted and out of place in big arena contexts.
this footage of !!! at HardcoreFest ’99 shows them doing their thing in the right environs. it’s like the second coming of NYC disco/noise, but with a basement show ethic rather than an art gallery one. i’m gonna review there new record soon, so maybe this’ll be a good primer. weird how kids want their music irony-saturated but get freaked out if it actually has a sense of humor.
‘can you feel it? 2002!’
