quick take : iceage : new brigade

In places these extremely young Danish punks reminds me powerfully of the proto-Joy Division band Warsaw. Or, more accurately, the band Warsaw might have become if, instead of getting slower and chillier, they’d gotten faster and more abrasive. There’s a crazy physicality to this release; sometimes the band seems to be fighting with itself, using the instruments as weapons. Iceage shows are apparently borderline riots. I hope they don’t turn out be fascists or some such, coz then I couldn’t keep enjoying this record.
