PERFECT SONGS 2.. ROUND III..

~~~~~~~~..~~~~~~~~|||~
1Ruins
Hyderomastgroningem


The theme for this round is PROG PUNK.. something that marries the terse intensity of punk music with the technical aspects and hyper-tight prog structures.. the title track from the album on your left is an example.. some of Henry Cow's leaner and more manic material fits the bill as well.. go on, my beautiful test tube abortions..
2Upsilon Acrux
Galapagos Momentum


So Thereby... And therefore.. something or other.. pancakes with mono - hansolo

Nice stormy little track, liked it quite a bit.. the tonality of prog with all the chaotic nature of good noise punk..
3Gospel
The Moon Is a Dead World


And Redemption Fills the Emptiest of Hearts - plane

The vox were a borderline wash, sticking too close to homogenous latter-day post hardcore screamo.. but that fucking atmo breakdown.. shiiiiiiiit.. stick around, plane..
4Slapp Happy and Henry Cow
Desperate Straights


Mommy's Little Monsters - Delusions of Negotiations - brain

I could hardly find enough information about this band to even add them to the database.. don't know where you dug them up, brain.. but the tune is absolute killer..
5HORSE the band
The Mechanical Hand


A Million Exploding Hands - Zombie

Zombie, you know i love ya.. but this was metalcore.. it had enough prog aspects to it.. but the punk was sorely lacking, at least the punk that i like.. sorry, my dude.. ELIMINATED
6Anthroprophh
Omegaville


Death Salad - Uni

Decent theater here.. you're on a cusp though, because the song skirted boring on the verses.. but the guitar work would swoop in just at the right time to salvage it.. teetering motherfucker..
7Fucked Up
Year of the Pig


Year of the Pig - Cugno

I haven't listened to very much Fucked Up, but what I did hear, i didn't really like.. There was plenty good happening here, even though at the end of the 18 minutes, i felt like I just listened to the Free Bird of post hardcore.. anyway, there was a lot of cool variation here, so hang around..
8United Mutation
Rainbow Person


Take Your Pick - Chorts

Chorts, this was a great tune, but it was just a straight up first wave hardcore track.. sorry, my love.. ELIMINATED..
9Rx Bandits
...And the Battle Begun


...And the Battle Begun - Blitz

The brass touches were grand, but sorry, dude.. this was a pretty wimpy affair.. vox are not my thing at all.. ELIMINATED
10These Arms Are Snakes
Easter


Crazy Woman Dirty Train - widow

Plenty to enjoy here, and it adhered to the prog and punk aspects just enough.. you slide by on this one.. but barely.. dun duuuuuuuuun!
11Malignus Youth
Malignus Youth


The Only Unknown - WeepingBanana

what a strange fucking mash.. there was a bit of prog, bit of punk, some poppy shit, vocals smack of blink-182.. hahahaha.. alright, you're in, my second ringer..
12White Suns
Sinews


Cenote - cylinder

half-decent noise punk, but not very proggy.. sorry, cyl.. ELIMINATED
13Van der Graaf Generator
The Quiet Zone/The Pleasure Dome


The Sphinx in the Face - Fripp

the only person who realized that the punk part of prog punk didn't have to be a noisy onslaught, but something talking head-esque.. pliant and proggy as hell, with funk touches and a grand energy.. you're in, baby doll..
