NU,POGODI / CHOOSE YOUR POISON: Fuck My Womb I’m Calling in Dead: 7”

Jun 13, 2014

This is kind of a dream come true for me. One of my most common reviewing techniques is to invent an obscure cartoon and say that the band is named after it, using the theme of the cartoon as a metaphor for what the band is about. But I don’t need to do that with Nu,Pogodi, because the band is actually named after an obscure Russian cartoon about a fucked up, chain-smoking wolf who spends his days chasing after an absurdly wide-eyed rabbit. The band isn’t exactly cartoonish though. Through a pummeling barrage of harsh core, they delve into topics that are all too realistic, about being an outsider and looking for acceptance within. On the other side is Wisconsin’s Choose Your Poison, who deliver “Calling in Dead,” a sweet shout-along hardcore tune, and a couple other fast and wild stompers that are over in the blink of an eye.
