Review Summary: It's, "jazz," influenced, "grindcore," but it doesn't blow dick!
See You Next Tuesday has quickly been catapulted to the head of the white-belt grind scene, with their extensive touring, as well as their much anticipated full-length album Parasite
, featuring ex-Fleshandbloodrobot singer Chris Fox. In 2005, though, See You Next Tuesday consisted of Bear, Drewdor, Rick, and Andy.
C.U.N.T.'s approach to, "grind," is a bit less same-y in comparison most Michigan scene grind. Regardless, Drew's guitarwork isn't very, "musical," in the traditional sense: lots of tremolo picked diminished chords, odd tempo breaks, and plenty of slow, purposefully drawn out and non-intense breakdowns... and a pretty interesting section of sweeped harmonics. Andy's drumming is quick and precise, and really damn good... you can hearhis footwork a lot more clearly than on either Parasite
or This Was A Tragedy
, his snare tone is great, and he holds the whole thing together quite well. Rick doesn't do annoying as hell bass drops, and provides a great muddy backing rhythm for Drewdor's spazzy video game guitar parts. Plus, they played barefoot together! But it's Bear's vocals that make this release so good: the epitome of bizarre sounding, range-stretching inhale screams, provide such a unique fronting. His lyrics are an entertaining form of prose, though it takes a bit of listening to understand him at first.

"Oh dear piano player can't you just play that tune for us one more time can't you just pull your shÃ*t together just one more time then we could dance this horrible night away and we'll keep the rhythm of this song with the motions of our hands on each other's bodies and the way our lips will move saying sweet nothings the straight black and white feeling has faded into a burning shade of gray."
