Canadian epic-punks Fucked Up check in on their Zodiac series with instalment number eight, Year Of The Snake. The title track is a full twenty-four minutes long, using electronics and psychedelic weirdness alongside the band’s classic hardcore. Plus, the CD edition features a wild club-tastic remix from Container. Released by Tankcrimes.
9/10 gbar Customer review, 6th April 2017
Another year, another Zodiac release in the Fucked Up catalogue, and it seems they're getting even more experimental with every release. Just take a listen to Year of the Snake: A 23-minute exercise in punk, psychedelia and ambient soundscapes, the latter of which playing a pretty big part in the song's second half. After a song like that, the b-side ‘Passacaglia’ struggles, but ultimately makes for a worthwhile addition to the EP. This one doesn’t venture too far away from its main groove and is essentially an extended jam full of looping keys and stabbing guitars. Fucked Up certainly lives up to their name in relation to doing exactly what the hell they please.
