Asylum All Ages – Upped hate

In all ages, asylum, bands, jersey, live lounge, music on November 11, 2009 at 18:42

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.”

This is a battle for supremacy between sneering, nihilistic no-wavers on one side and progressive art-metal fanatics on the other. For one night only, each of these two tribes seeks to prove the other should be dispatched to the softcore shitter. Who will win?

All ages welcome.

On Friday September 18th, Asylum at Live Lounge presents another brilliant show featuring four bands of quality and distinction.

Hold Your Fire! is a five-piece rock band with influences such as Rise Against, Strung Out, Ten Foot Pole and A Wilhelm Scream. They are currently recording their album entitled Ink Ribbon which is due for completion by the end of 2009. Hold Your Fire! are James Pallot (vocals), Chris Day (bass and vocals), James Day (guitar), Daniel Allman (guitar) and Chris Reed (drums).

Gorey Inbreds are psychedelically informed explorers of a dubious realm where hip hop, funk, country, and wanton carelessness meet. The results are the most fun it is possible to imagine. Gorey Inbreds, as their name suggests, come from a wild, backward zone of Jersey known as Gorey, and their membership is Sir Oliver Andrew Clark Kent, Lord Ryan Alexander De Jersey Douglas, Harry, BB … possibly some special guests too. They claim that anyone who lives in the Gorey area, and isn’t ginger, can be a part of their group.

The Underground were started in late 2008 by Liam Coles and James Perchard. Harry Bartlett joined the band to form a classic triumvirate. They say their aim is to put on a good show and have a laugh. In August 2009 they announced they are recording their EP at Wavesound Studios and the tracks on it shall be called Kick It, Blackjack Dealer, Pulse, and Giving It All.

The Underground won the final of Jersey’s Junior Battle of the Bands 2009. Read about their success in that competition at BBC Jersey Introducing’s Dirty Rock ‘n’ Roll at Battle Final.

The Revolt is a punk band that sets itself apart from what is seen to be a dominance of emo and metal bands in Jersey. The track Do 1, an eight second long micro-anthem of alienation, is an example of their uncompromising approach and possibly an expression of dissatisfaction with a scene that has often prized hipness over integrity. The Revolt are Adam Bouteloup (lead guitar and backing vocals), Jack Pallot (drums), Tom Videira (vocals and rhythm guitar), and Max Wiltshire (bass and backing vocals).
