BIO

This band was either way behind the times or way ahead of the times, but when they came out with this record in 1995 it didn't sound like anything else out there, really. Not metal, not industrial or dance, not "punk" in the musical sense, but certainly in the cultural sense. "Songs” that fit together nicely as an album.

Each song centers around precision drumming, which together with a set of great sounding guitar noises creates a background for growly vocals. Fans of Big Black, 16, and other heavy, angry punk will love this. The band is from Lancaster, PA and the music fits in well with that industrial background. Sterling Ruby was the brainchild in the band. Brutal stuff. Sterling is now a famous painter and Andrew the Bass Player is a photographer in York, PA.
