To begin to describe this outfit from Moscow, Russia from any reviewers perspective is by any stretch of the imagination, ambitious or more to the point, virtually impossible.
Perhaps using the liner notes is the best start.
Recorded on the DIY POGO Label (since 1993 which is now somewhere between Belgium and France) whose motto is “WE record anything that is open to wild open ears” we like punk, metal, electro, noise, sludge, dub, emo and ambient…..be open or go away.
Now if you can try and imagine a sound that has made all of these a hybrid,…well.. you would not even be warm.
Opening with an almost a No Wave sound, comprising stark pounding notes and persecuted vocal, this music from behind the “Metal” curtain is unlike anything you have ever heard.
From the cover’s depiction of blood pouring from a CCTV camera, this sound is extremely impressionistic and musically from the punk attitude view. It screams loud about oppression. This EP is a sound sensation, and using punk the sentiment of their environment is probably musically expressed better than using any words. It is very different and from the listener who absolutely loves, it delving into totally new music. This EP is a landmark.
Whoever these guys called the “JARS” are, we do not want them to unscrew themselves. They have their finger on a totally new approach to punk and in the not too distant future should they get the uncontrollable urge to come to our shores and share this live with us, please..try not to fight it.
Grandiose, brilliant and a total brain melt down. “Sputnik punk” has arrived. Regards from Australia.
