Dumpster Tapes in Chicago had a big year in 2014 and they’re continuing the story in 2015. Their latest is a full length from SON OF A GUN; a 12-track cassette rolled into a raging fireball of frenetic garage punk energy.
They wound these tracks up tight, slapped on a fuse, doused them in gasoline and lit a match. The ensuing explosion created No Bread. Operating as a 4-piece, they run rampant through 12 scorching tracks in 29 minutes, slamming the pedal to the metal and never giving it a second thought. They’re forceful and relentless, creating the perfect soundtrack as you fly down the highway without ever dipping below 100mph.
Songs never crack the 3-minute mark, but they’re packed full with mangled guitars and rumbling bass for a completely ear-shredding sound. Vocal duties are shared by guitarists Nick and Garrett, creating a two-pronged attack of raspy, riotous chanting. They proceed to pummel with drumming that never slows, sustaining their wild pace from front to back. “Looks So Good” opens the tape and quickly gets things going, showcasing snarling vocals and agile, fire-fueled guitars. “Hanging Up On Me” comes with spiny little guitar hooks and a wonky bass line for support, creating an invigorating and elastic bridge that keeps the stampede steamrolling over everything in sight. “Come Back” opens with shredded chords and some grungy bass tones, spearheaded by unruly vocal howling and wigged-out guitar licks.
By the time it’s all said and done, No Bread turns out to be a completely exhilarating batch of aggressive garage punk. Take these few examples below as proof and snag the tape before it’s all gone – there’s only 100!
