Tokyo Damage Report

reup: FUCKING TREMENDOUS HEAVY METAL AND PUNK SHOW THAT PROBABLY HAPPENED: slight slappers, dot (.), su19b

 

mar 13, 2005

SLIGHT SLAPPERS

this band is the BIZZO. First of all, they are a big band who is humble enough to open the show. They just showed up at the club, plowed through like 15 songs in 4 minutes, killed everyone, drank our blood, and left before dinnertime. TC of motherfucking B. Also, they are kind of like IDOL PUNCH in the sense of being sloppy-fast (as opposed to Metal-fast) and looking like they are enjoying themselves but still angry as hell. Everyone in this band jumped around, which was points. but the singer was just so wacked out — doing all these crazy spazztic Butoh dance moves and just being totally intense. Plus, these guys have kept this up for over 8 years.

 

REALIZED

meh.

SENSELESS APOCALYPSE

This is one of those bands where i do not remember the music. but they had 2 vocalists who got really as jiggy as one could reasonably expect. WHY DO ALL BANDS NOT HAVE TWO SINGERS?? the singers are always the most fun to watch anyway, and plus they have way more freedom to jump than guitars or drums. Plus, everyone wants to be a fucking singer, they are a dime a dozen. this is a win-win situation, people!! why has this gimmick not caught on?? fuck, let's just issue every shitty band additional vocalists until they either a) start to not suck, or b) are crowded off the stage by the singers.

 

EVIL SPEAK

this band would definitely have to be crowded off the stage.

dot(.)

 

dot played i think the first 17 minutes of their new 24 minute opus. My man Dan says he was playing too slow. how the hell do you play too slow for a doom band? Do you tell Sinatra "Hey Frankie baby, you swing too much?"

 

/WORLD DOWNFALL

Ok, at this point we are about a pint of whiskey and a shot of vodka into the evening. The point where the voice in my head starts telling me, "Dude, that last shot had no effect on you whatsoever. You need more." which it JUST NOW occurred to me that maybe the "not drunk enough!" voice is ITSELF a symptom that I HAVE ALREADY DRUNK TOO MUCH. you think? anyway, long story short, i can safely say that World Downfall played some sort of music and there were probably japanese people in the band.

su19b

well, shucks. Between World Downfall and su19b, i decided it would be an hilarious idea to get like another "one-cup" of and drink it in 30 seconds. so, while the sochu, gin, and vodka really enjoyed the su19b, the brain was like, (Homer Simpson voice) "You guys can stay if you want, but I'm outta here (slam)" This sucks because, judging from the photos, this is one of the best bands ever. Like, even though i was pretty impaired, almost 90% of the photos came out good. Fortunately for those of you at home, i saw su19b last year so i can describe the sound. Basically they sound like old california grindcore/powerviolence legends CROSSED OUT.

 

But since maybe only 5 people have heard about CROSSED OUT, i will go into more detail. the su19b style is. . . .play a note which weighs like 30 tons and is such a low frequency that it takes approximately 3 minutes to ooze out of the speakers. Then they play another 30 ton note, then really quickly they play like 5,000 notes at a beyond-fast tempo, then they sort of play another 3-minute note and the audience is like, "Did that even just happen??" While the singer lurches backwards and forwards like some kind of Drunken Master Grunge Weeble. I am really angry that i do not remember this band.

Also, after i got home (somehow) i started to write a review of this show right then and there. Looking at it next morning, i realized that i was so drunk that i had MISSPELLED THE WORD DOT. That really is — well, it is a milestone of some sort.

 

—- SLIGHT SLAPPERS

 

—- and again, It is one of those situations where the singer is just moving too fast for me to take a good picture. He is like a bhuto dervish having a grand mal seizure while suffering from Tourette's.
