I got to visit with my friends BASTARD NOISE in Chicago on Monday night. They're on tour supporting their new album A CULTURE OF MONSTERS. As is the case with any B.N. release, this is beyond. But this one is even beyond-er. For the first time in a while Mr. Eric Wood is playing his 4 STEEL GIRDERS live again, and CONNELL is on the kit. W.T. NELSON plays his noise like a Blue Angel pilot. For any MAN IS THE BASTARD/BASTARD NOISE fan, seeing live instrumentation from these giants of men was not to be missed, and knees buckled and visions were seen by those wise SKULL SERVANTS who witnessed. Like a dumbass, I didn't bring anything to document the occasion. Perhaps it was for the best as I am sure it would have just appeared as a flash of light. Here is a video put together by SKULL SERVANT J. Randall though for the first track off the new slab.
