PLAQUE MARKS - ANXIETY DRIVEN NERVOUS WORSHIP CDep REP 131
Punk driven noise rock from Philadelphia featuring members of Creepoid, Fight Amp, Ecstatic Vision and Powder Room
STOLEN FROM THEIR BANDCAMP:
Caveman drumming, tooth-rattling bass, painfully distorted guitars, and buried yells are the elements at play here, and on debut EP Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship they sound like they were recorded with one lone mic, hanging from a noose in a Philly warehouse.
Plaque Marks credit Texas legends Rusted Shut and Cherubs for inspiration, as well as the early works of contemporaries Pissed Jeans – and while some of the members' other work, particularly Fight Amp, resides in this ballpark too, Plaque Marks take it to new depths. This is noise-rock in its simplest and most corrosive state, and Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship is right at home on both Reptilian Records and on Minneapolis label Learning Curve Records, responsible for releases by Vaz, Hammerhead, and Gay Witch Abortion.
