No Babies sure make a righteous post-hardcore racket! Hailing from Oakland, California and sharing much in common with fellow underground noise defenders KIT, No Babies carry on a fine tradition of experimental hardcore with a twist. Musically the group are a blur of jazz infused punk rock fun with atonal guitars, Deerhoof inspired drums and wild freeform saxophone aiding and abetting an onslaught of insane vocal bursts. Themes range from '...harsh criticism of American imperialism in the Hawaiian Islands to evoking the exhilaration and unease of childhood and the triumphant power of friendship'. For sure, these kids are a gang, in much the same way as Nation Of Ulysses were and the inclusion of abstract saxophone shapes hasn't passed me by either. Gangs are way better than bands don't you think? Bands are careerist and self-obsessed, gangs are angry and rely on strength in numbers to make a difference and I like that. Anyway, If you're familiar with The Flying Luttenbachers (Weasal Walters on mastering duties by the way), xBxRx, KIT and Warbler then you'll have some idea of what to expect here but I can also hear the influence of Arab On Radar, Aidswolf, Les George Leningrad, Death Sentence Panda, Harry Pussy as well as a whole host of Load bands. Also worth noting the brief and melodically sabotaged Metallica riff that makes an appearance midway through the second side. I think it's the intro melody to 'Battery' and it's inclusion tickles my funny bone. So, a fine record full of abrasive and utterly positive noisecore. Sparkly pink vinyl!!! Get In.
