Suppression is a bass and drums duo, but stow your accusations of bandwagon-jumping under your seats for now pilgrim, because these two twisted fucks have been at it for years. Similarities to Ruins and Lightning Bolt abound, due to the sheer fact that their instrumentation is the same, but these guys are coming from a far sillier, noise-punk based viewpoint, complete with vocals. Opening with a bubbling blast of treated electronics before shatting out the first song proper, which sees someone a-whooping and a-hollering over some tapped drums before going into some seriously noisy spazzcore shite, the band continue in a seemingly random vein, neatly complemented by the unpleasant lyrical content. These two guys are pretty much reassuringly wrong in the head, and the whole thing is fun, if a little disposable. Incidentally, the drummer also plays in Darkest Hour. Sometimes you can really tell. Short, sharp and sick. I like it!
