What is replica? Surely not, a copy of any reproduction on planet earth. Replica is by far the most intense, provocative and raw hardcore punk band i've listened to lately. According to the internet webzines and blog the bands stands somewhere between Harum-scarum and Talk is poison. The truth is that if I had a band I would like to kick-off with a rager like “Sycophant” and I would like to scream “You can't stop the weather”. I would also like to sing 3 choruses and 1 refrain in 40 seconds and jump above frightened people with my shoes upside down. I don't know if Dharma can do that but I know that only few people can laugh with such courage and power as she does (on “Sandy bottoms'). I don't know if you care but they come from Bay area and they are also involved with No Statik (what a fuckin great band), Infect, Bad Blood, Duck and Cover. This demo along with Stripmines latest album is the reason why hardcore is and always be so refreshing and mind-blowing. Period. For all of you that missed Robert's post
here ya go...
“This is hardcore with teeth, and with more originality on this five song banger than most bands manage to eek out of their entire futile careers.”
Πω πω, λες κ ησουν στο μυαλο μου. την προηγουμενη παρασκευη, 1η μερα αφου εφτασα, πηγα να δω Tragedy (!) στο Oakland (τα απεξω απεξω που'τανε κ το κλαπ, μου θυμισε την ειδοσο του βολου με τις χαμηλες αποθηκες. εκει λεγοταν warehouse district!) και ποιοι ητανε support? Replica (φουλ τσιτα γαμω, κ η τυπα ειναι λες κ εχει λυσσα), Negative Standards (εχω να το κανω κ ριβιου, ο ενας ειναι κ σιτγουορκερ στο περιοδικο-δυστυχως ειχαν κακο ηχο κ δεν ακουγες τα τυμπανα), Hunting Party (μες τα μουτρα σου χαρτνκορ της γειτονιας, κανουν προβες σ'ενα μερος που μοιαχει με πρωην μπουρδελο, διπλα σ'ενα τρανς κλαμπ. κ δεν εννοω την μουσικη) και Talk is Poison (μονο εμενα η φωνη του τυπου μου θυμιζει Big Business??)
οποτε τσιαρζ κ ψηλα τις μπυρες για το ποστ, τιποτα δε σου ξεφευγει ;) Εδω ολοι γουσταρουν φουλ να μαθουν για ελληνικο πανκ, μιας κ αυτα εδω ειναι δυσευρετα.
