Another quick 'un just for the skronk-gonks out there then..  Here's Deadguy's last gasp from 1996..  Fluctuating time-signatures thumping in and out of discordantly lurching riff-structures.  Burying some janglingly atonal almost jazzy flourishes under their jagged patterns and blunted rhythms..  Like being randomly punched and headbutted viciously while someone simultaneously tickles your feet and titters maniacally in the background..  Unsettling, in a word.  Uneasy atmospheres arise amid a general feeling of wrong-headedness..  Basically they were appropriating the most disorientating sonics from noise-rock and incorporating them into their off-kilter hardcore fury.  You may or may not be able to discern the influence these guys had on future tech-core whizzkids like Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge and Coalesce..  Recorded and produced by Steve Austin, this bears some similarities to his Today Is The Day output of the same period.  Just for an extra nice noise-rockin' extra, the EP also finishes ya off with a bonus untitled dirge..
