Topic: Big Crux

obviously there isn't many bands who have played HC/punk with actual funk rhythms and not sounded like a complete pile of ass, but these guys NAIL it. Big rousing 80s style choruses that remind of DC Rev Summer bands, big loud scratchy bass.. the good shit.

Re: Big Crux

The more i listen to the 2 records...the more i hear an 80's indie influence..
stuff like the Redskins....the singers voice is a dead ringer for something in my head but just cant remember what.

Re: Big Crux

Just listening to Kepone, they had a good dose of rhythm in there while being really noiserock too. Think the guitarist used to be in a reggae band.

Defo hear 80s indie in there too, especially in the kinda harmonies and vocal styles, bit of later Husker Du in there too I reckon. Nice blend of styles.

i tried to but was told they are doing mail order only, and was quoted a price of $15 a copy. PUNX!

Re: Big Crux

I tried to get wholesale, but couldn't, so not bothered.

Re: Big Crux

Hope they get distro sorted out for Europe so we don't have to pay double for their records..

Re: Big Crux

any of these records appeared in distros in the UK yet?

Re: Big Crux

I've been hoping someone would pick up a few copies in the UK. Trouble is IL records is just not cutting any wholesale deals or anything so I doubt its going to arrive.
