Asylum All Ages – Upped hate

The last time we did an Asylum All Ages show, Sam Delanoe of Demise Of Sanity advised me that some of their lyrics could be deemed offensive and wanted to be sure it was okay to perform them undiluted. I thought the question was a reasonable courtesy and I told him it was fine. Metal and punk rock is an assault on the senses. It is a kind of art in which disturbances of emotion and devices of terrorising intent are important.

As well as Demise Of Sanity this show on November 20th also features Wasted Youth, Too Many Humans, The Revolt, Clockwork Sodomy and Critical Mass. The theme of the show is Metal vs. Punk.

Two of the bands that are playing at the All Ages show, Clockwork Sodomy and Demise Of Sanity, will be performing for Kenny’s Gig 2009 at Bar Rock on Sunday 15th November. Here’s a link to the poster for that event.

Sam’s question got me wondering, is there anything a band could say within the context of their art that isn’t acceptable?

Critical Mass changed their name for this date. Eddie Laffoley has written about it on the Facebook page for the event. He says, “Apparently we couldn’t play the gig with the name Die Inbred so we had to change it. It wasn’t my idea to change the name, was not appropriate or some bullshit! I mean we’re not condoning incest at all, hence Die Inbred. We change it and they still aren’t fucking happy! They said that Playing With Children and I’d Tap That 3 Year Old sounded too pedophiliac.”
