EXCLUSIVE FULL ALBUM STREAM: 400 BLOWS’ SICKNESS AND HEALTH
Though nowadays my bailiwick at MetalSucks is hardcore, those who have followed this column from the start will recall that I started out with a focus on noise rock, a subgenre that peaked in the 90s and has experienced a glorious resurgence over the past several years. At the start, I used this space to turn readers onto bands like The Austerity Program, Cable, Disappearer, Goes Cube, Kowloon Walled City, Pissed Jeans, and Wetnurse, to name a few. You dig those acts, right? Yeah, I thought so.
Replete with a name straight of a cinephile’s spank bank, noise rockers 400 Blows have returned after six years of relative silence with Sickness And Health, and let me tell you, ladies (ha!) and gents, it’s a beaut! If you don’t recall them from earlier albums like Black Rainbow or tours with bands including At The Drive In and The Locust, here’s your chance to catch up with our exclusive stream of the new record!
If this sorta thing floats your boat, go ahead and pre-order the CD, download, and vinyl editions here. Hey, and this Friday, the band kick off a series of dates opening for noneother than those noise rock instigators Butthole Surfers!
