DEFECT DEFECT: Words: 7"

Jul 23, 2007

I’m old fashioned. I involuntarily wince when a band I really dig breaks up (The Observers) and the folks go on to other bands. Totally unfair of me. Guilty. Suckin’. It takes a bit of time for the water to recede from the previous endeavor and listen to the new project by itself, of itself. Fact 1: Colin and Mike are two golden dudes who know how to play and their ethics are unquestionable (again, old fashioned of me, I know). Fact 2: Instead of griping, or “pulling a Misfits” or “pulling a Dead Kennedys” and holding on to the vestiges of a once-great band, these two go a completely new route. Fact 3: Bands that clone Black Flag (pick your era) suck. Bands that find those hidden lightning bolts and charge their own brains can rule, and Defect Defect do just that. It’s a straight-forward attack that’s simple, yet mighty effective. Fact 4: I’ll give any band that’s named after a Wipers lyric more than the benefit of the doubt. Theory 1: I have the feeling they’ve got plenty of surprises up their sleeves and I can’t wait to hear more. Conclusion: awesome.
