Surely one of the best kept secrets in the underground music scene is CrazySane Records, right? This little Berlin-based label, run by Chris Breuer of ear-bothers HEADS. has been quietly releasing some great records, split 7″ and EPs over the last few months and slowly building up a name for themselves.
The frothing abrasiveness of No Pleasure showcases just how far USA Nails have progressed in such a short space of time. Their punk rock melodies have mutated like Carpenter’s The Thing into an unrelenting bludgeon of ugliness. No Pleasure (which was recorded live with minimal takes) is all about creating a thoroughly demented, chaotic and cathartic listening experience.
“This is Twin Peaks” – God bless USA Nails. Did you know they have a live album available to stream from the Smalltown America website? You didn’t? Well, you best get on it pronto and listen to it right now if you know what’s good for you. Sometimes, I’d rather be a bird and sometimes I’d rather see it all.
