Cherubs, Pachinko, Coordinated Suicides

  • Frequency 121 West Main Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Noise-rock band Cherubs have been blowing out speakers and playing buzzy riffs since before I was alive (no really that's true), but they have yet to lose steam. Formed in 1991, the Austin group released two albums and a handful of splits and singles before breaking up in 1994. Their short initial run inspired many alternative and punk bands so much that a compilation cover album was released in their honor. This tribute led to the band's regrouping in 2014. They released their newest album, 2 YNFYNYTY, in 2015. This new album blends their signature harsh and static sound with melodic-leaning choruses on tracks like "Sandy On The Beach" while "We Buy Gold" and "Crashing The Ride" are fast and turbulent tracks that sound like they crawled out of an early 90's garage just to die in this decade. Cherubs are joined here by local punk and noise warhorses Pachinko, who recently released a reunion album of their own, and Madison noise outfit Coordinated Suicides for a ruthless night at the Frequency. —John McCracken
