Negative Approach

https://www.facebook.com/Negative-Approach-252596481434952/

Negative Approach is the iconic Detroit, Michigan hardcore band fronted by John Brannon, one of the genre’s most distinctive screamers. The 21 muscular songs NA released between 1981 and 1983 dramatize the agonies of alienation as powerfully as any hardcore band’s catalog, but in particular it is Brannon’s maniacal stage presence, delivery and image that gave the band legendary status among hardcore fans. In 1981 Brannon was inspired by the Necros and Black Flag to start a hardcore band. He left his Stooges-influenced band Static and formed Negative Approach with guitarist Rob McCulloch, bassist Pete Zelewski and Iranian drummer Zuheir, though the original rhythm section did not last long. In Forced Exposure #4’s interview with the band, Brannon explained, “Pete quit so we thought we'd get a new bass player. We got [Rob’s brother] Graham then we said, well, why don't we get rid of Zuheir cause he's an asshole and we got Opie.” Zelewski played guitar in the Allied after leaving Negative Approach. In 1982 NA built a stage at the rehearsal space they shared with Brannon’s girlfriend Larissa Stolarchuk’s band L-Seven, transforming the practice room into a punk and hardcore venue called the Clubhouse. Negative Approach made its first appearance on record on the Process of Elimination 7-inch compilation (Touch and Go 1981), contributing the 40-second blast “Lost Cause,” the only NA recording that features Zelewski and Zuheir. Other than that, NA released two records during its brief career, both recorded by the Brannon/McCulloch/McCulloch/Moore lineup: the 7-inch Negative Approach (Touch and Go 1982), recorded in Touch and Go chief Corey Rusk’s basement, and the album Tied Down (Touch and Go 1983). A close-up of Linda Blair’s character in The Exorcist stares out from the sleeve of the self-titled 7-inch, which contains ten songs short and fast enough—“Pressure” lasts 14 seconds—to fit on a single. NA stretches out just slightly on Tied Down, also a collection of ten songs, with one you might even call slow (“Evacuate”). Rob McCulloch and Moore quit in 1983. In a 2000 interview with Game of the Arseholes, McCulloch said: “The main reason Chris and I quit was that we read a review of our 7-inch that said something like ‘good music, with lots of lyrics about us hating them, and them hating us’ which we had been feeling ourselves but reading it brought it out into the open, and we talked to John about maybe writing about some other stuff. John was living a very different life than the three of us. We were living at home with our parents and John who was a little older than us was living down in the Cass Corridor in Detroit with his girlfriend Larissa. His life and experiences were a lot harsher than ours and he was writing about what he knew at the time.” Brannon formed a new lineup of Negative Approach with guitarist Kelly Dermody. The names of the bassist and drummer survive only as “Dave” and “Mike” in a late interview from Fish #4, transcribed at the Kill from the Heart hardcore archive (http://homepages.nyu.edu/~cch223/). This lineup broke up in the middle of a 1984 tour and did not record. Brannon and Stolarchuk subsequently formed the Laughing Hyenas, after whose mid-90s breakup Brannon formed Easy Action. Total Recall (Touch and Go 1990) collects NA’s entire discography on one CD and supplements it with previously unreleased live recordings from 1982-1984. Brannon and Moore reunited for a Negative Approach performance at Touch and Go’s 2006 25th anniversary festival in Chicago. Brannon told a Variety blogger that he had asked Rob McCulloch to participate in the reunion, but that McCulloch said he hadn’t “picked up the guitar in 15 years.” Easy Action’s guitarist and bassist, Harold Richardson and Ron Sakowski, replaced the McCulloch brothers in the reunion band. The DVD releases Fair Warning Vol. 1 (Negative Approach 2006) and Fair Warning Vol.2 (Negative Approach 2007) compile the existing video footage of NA live in the early 80s, while Can’t Tell No One (MCRNR 2008) consists of reunion shows. Negative Approach continues to perform in the United States and Europe.



Dayglo Abortions

https://www.facebook.com/daygloabortions/

Few punk bands have remained in business for as long as the veteran Canadian trio, Dayglo Abortions, has. Since 1979, the band (in one configuration or another) has been offering up no-holds barred punk rock (that was eventually merged with heavy metal), as well as some truly over-the-top (and unforgettable) album cover artwork/images. And the lads are back with their first studio album in twelve years (and ninth studio set overall), 'Armageddon Survival Guide,' which will be unleashed on March 25, 2016, via Unrest Records.

Since the beginning, the group has been led by Murray Acton AKA "The Cretin" (guitar and vocals), and made their mark on the punk underground throughout the '80s, with such over-the-top classics as 'Out of the Womb' (1981), 'Feed Us a Fetus' (1986), and 'Here Today, Guano Tomorrow' (1987). But it was also during this time that the band found themselves in hot water with the law, after obscenity charges were brought against the band and their then-label, Fringe Product, after a police officer's daughter bought a copy of 'Here Today,' and the officer failed to appreciate the band's irreverent sense of humor. Happily, all charges were dropped in 1990.

Dayglo Abortions continued on their merry way throughout the '90s with such additional recordings as 'Two Dogs Fucking - Deux Chiens Fourrent' (1991), 'Little Man in the Canoe' (1995), 'Corporate Whores' (1996), 'Stupid World, Stupid Songs' (1998), and 'Death Race 2000' (1999). And it was around this time that The Cretin was joined by bassist Willy Jak, who has remained a member of the band to this very day. The early 21st century saw the arrival of further albums, including 'Holy Shiite' (2004) and 'Live 2011' (2011), which led to the arrival of the group's modern day drummer, Blind Marc (who is indeed legally blind), as well as the aforementioned 'Armageddon Survival Guide.'

"Just like Armageddon, our new album has been rumored to be coming out for ages now," explains The Cretin. "In fact it says in the Bible, that in the end times, the world will go totally to shit, everyone will be sinning their goddamned asses off, and they will all be listening punk bands like the Dayglo Abortions, who clearly couldn't give a shit about God or the Devil. Now those aren't the exact words used of course. But that was a long time ago, and what the fuck did they know anyway. Anyway...those days are here, the world has gone to shit, Lady Gaga is rubbing her Satan worshiping vagina all over the Super Bowl, and the new Dayglo album is out."

"The 'Armageddon Survival Guide' is gonna kick the shit out of you. It's gonna scare the fucking Jesus out of God and all his sissy angels. We're not sure how Satan will take it, but we don't believe in him anyway, so fuck Satan. Let your head get smashed in by the 'Armageddon Survival Guide,' brought to you by those Messiahs of the UN-sane, the Dayglo Abortions."
