Amebix!

Woah, OG UK crusty punk band Amebix has reformed and is going to tour the US in January. You can almost smell the unshoweredness from the crowds at their shows months in advance. I'm pretty stoked, I listened to them a fair amount in the latter half of the '80s and had the requisit Amebix patches on my crusty jeans and jacket. I don't think I've listened to 'em in twenty years though, so it's time to dust off the old vinyl and see how they held up. With most crust punk, I tended to be a bigger fan of it live than on record, Amebix, Nausea and Discharge being the biggest exceptions. The wierdest part of this whole deal is the Seattle show is going to take place at Neumos... a venue not exactly known for hosting punk shows:

January 27th @ Neumos
Amebix
Tragedy
Mass Graves
Meisce

Saw em a few times way back when. I always thought they were hit or miss depending on what drugs they were on!
