Ohhh man, if you haven't checked it out already:
Absolutely nuts. Probably one of the most brutal bands I've heard in terms of sheer madness.
I have the STG's "Cuddlemonster" and the three unreleased(?), however attainable, tracks Boxcutter, Pervavor, and Rapekit.
I also have Cloacal Kiss's LP "Easter".
I agree with others in saying that STG is not a good comparrison... in my opinion they sound nothing alike.
No, comparison's don't matter really, they sound nothing alike.
sawtooth grin blows
cloacal whatever their name is kiss blows
just bands for scene kids to name drop who actually are god awful, anyone can scream and play really fast, doesnt it make it good.
Yeah....... seeing as more "scene kids" "name drop" the number twelve vs. the sawtooth grin or even Cloacal Kiss.
i love this record. it's definitely one of my favorites.
you say they have a jazz influence way too much, considering they really don't.
your reviews never flow well. you're not a very good writer.
Considering the music the Number Twelve comes out with almost ALWAYS have at least 3 distinctive attributes comparative to jazz: Polyrhytm, Call and Response, and Improvisation. And I don't think you should deny that, becuase it's blatanly apparent.
I agree with this statement x100000000. I listen to so many different bands and even genres of music, I can't even stand just listening to one becuase I hate having to search through piles of myspaces and go to countless shows to try and find a band I like that fits the genre.
Sufjan Stevens, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Radiohead, Coldplay, Three 6 Mafia, Esoteric, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Deerhoof, etc etc.
