History Invades

Intensity In Ten Cities"

Dance punk with a rebellious edge? Count me in. “Intensity In Ten Cities” sounds like a digital fire if there ever was such a thing. It’s even more impressive when you consider the fact that they’re actually a rock band….guitars and all. Gone is the screaming D.C. post punk of their previous album, the trade off being screeching (guitar?) sounds and a cascading kit workout. Which brings me to the drums; either the drummer is a machine, or the machine is a drummer. Screw the typical four on the floor disco dance-- No snare, hihat, cymbal, or tom is left unstruck. They also keep the verse to a lean minute-thirty, leaving the rest of the song open for a jam session. Most of all, you gotta give credit to any band that cites Was (Not Was)(of “Everybody do the dinosaur” fame) as an influence.
