A horrible hack

The Huguenots


Year Released: 2008
Format: CD
Label: Hydra Head
Reviewed by Alex Deller on Oct 17, 2008
Hydrahead raid their dusty vaults once more, journeying back to the label's early days in order to puzzlingly resurrect the Huguenots, a gang of fresh-faced oiks who'd go on to grace the ranks of Converge, the Explosion and the perennially atrocious Piebald. Compiling the 10" they shared with the 7% Solution, an obscure 7" and a couple of other bits and bobs, this discography roughs and tumbles its way through a series of minor spazzmo explosions in the Gravity / 31G vein, thrashing out a neat enough line in disjointed herky-jerks and strangulated yammerings that, whilst never threatening to dethrone the masters, are certainly more than serviceable.
