BEAR PARTY: GAY PORNO GRIND

650

Porno grind is a ridiculous genre, and unless you consider a band like Anal Cunt pornogrind (and you really shouldn’t), it’s a genre which has never, at least as far as my experience goes, yielded any bands that are any good — save for one: Lake Bukkake, who might be the single greatest band ever to destroy the NYC underground (and then completely drop off the face of the planet).

And I can’t say that Bear Party — which reader Bassquatch, who recommended them, classifies as “Queercore” — are really a good band. However, I do think they deserve some credit for being an openly gay band in a disappointingly homophobic community. (Especially disappointing when you consider that no style of music is more homoerotic than metal. Sorry, tough guys.)

I mean, the dudes in Bear Party might just be straight guys taking the piss… they might just be doing a Sacha Baron Cohen thing, trying to expose prejudice by playing up stereotypes, but I really hope that’s not the case. Because a gay porno grind band is just so fuckin’, I dunno… unique. Knowing that there are two guys who are really are gay and really do love metal and really think that “Fags of the Future” and “Gaylien” are funny titles for songs makes me happy.

ANYWAY, check out Bear Party’s MySpace page, if for no other reason than because it’s pretty funny, even if the music is not necessarily anything special. For example, check out the link to their CD Baby page:

Clever fellows, these.
