Flying Trichecos s/t 12"

Believe it or not, our favorite Trichecos have actually turned into a pretty fucking great live band these days. The addition of Wedge on drums certainly helped, but I think the rest of the boys seem more focused (or at least as focused as is possible) on stage the past couple of times I've seen them. That focus might be centered on destroying things or playing songs, depending on which night you see them. Either way you win. Seven straight hits of the good stuff. Hits like the fist-pumping sing-a-long of "Noseblocker" (with funky Big Boys-esque verse included), classic slices of Clevo punk like "Recidivist" and "Rock-O-Rama" and even the classy rock moves of their manifesto "Death To False Drugs". I think one of the British guys from Cider does some backing vox on a few songs too. Sounds great spinning at 45rpm, one-sided (you know what the other side is for), with moronic insert (with lyrics!) and sleeve. Absolutely essential. Look out for the limited to 50 Horriblefest version that is far superior to the regular version....(RK)

The Flying Trichecos - S/T 12" (Mastermind Records)

 I sidste uge anmeldte jeg et andet Ohio-band, Nukkehammer fra Columbus, nu er turen kommet til The Flying Trichecos fra Cleveland, der netop har udsendt denne sublime 15-minutters EP på aarhusianske Mastermind Records. Endnu engang beviser Ohio, at staten besidder en af Amerikas mest vitale hardcore-scener.

 Jeg var så heldig at se The Flying Trichecos, da Cola Freaks spillede til Terrible Fest i Cleveland i maj måned. En intens koncertoplevelse med tilsvining af publikum, flasker der blev kastet mod bandet, og deres bindegale italienske forsanger der til sidst brillerede ved at vælte trommesættet og guitar amp'en.

 The Flying Trichecos har medlemmer fra så prominente Cleveland-bands som Darvocets, 9 Shocks Terror, Inmates, Out With a Bang og Midnight. Musikalsk kan de måske beskrives som et miks af gammel LA punk som Circle Jerks møder den mere hidsige 80'er Boston-hardcore. Dog med sit helt eget Cleveland-twist.

 Det er både catchy, bøvet og aggressivt samt tilsat bandets helt eget retarderede tekst univers, hvor specielt indtagelsen af kokain bliver hyldet i sange 'Death to False Drugs', 'My Nose Had a Good Day' og 'Nose Blocker'. The Flying Trichecos er typisk produckt af Cleveland, som er en unik meget fucked up amerikansk by, hvor biler bliver brændt af efter koncerter, uden at politi og brandvæsen gider dukke op pga. byens tårnhøje kriminalitet.

Det er noget af et scoop for danske Mastermind Records at få udgivet dette vanvidsband, der ikke rigtigt minder noget andet hardcore/punk jeg har hørt. 12'eren er ude i 450 eksemplarer, kun 300 tilbage. 7 killer tracks på en side. Dig in!
