So, this is Noise Rock.

Recommended Posts

Not my cup of tea but I can't hear anything that outrageous or radically different going on there.

Reminds me of some of the more ravey indie bands from the early 90s.

If someone played that to me and told me it was a new 'Sheep on Drugs' EP (the band, not the stoned woolly animal) I'd not have disbelieved them.

Can't really see what the fuss or ire is about.

Am I imagining things, or does a member of the audience call out a request for Wonderwall at 1:27 in the video?

Nice spot.

If I was young this might be just the kind of band I'd want to play in, guaranteed to make your olds tear their hair out. Then again when I was young I was listening to and going to see stuff like Test Department

The other day I managed to drop a couple of old jars, a cat and a biscuit tin full of cutlery onto a stone floor. Accidentally wrote a Noise Rock album.

The audience clearly love it, but I think the disco pills might help.

 

 

Saw these 2 a few times now and can confirm the disco pills theory.

They're like a noiser less polished royal blood in the sense of trying to make the bass sound like anything but, cool vid

Here's a bit of poppy noisecore; audience are great!

And here's some jazzier noisecore:

And this is what happens when serious jazzers get involved

 All are hilariously entertaining!

I like Lightning Bolt.

Noise Rock has been around as a genre since the early 80's though, and got increasingly popular in the 90's (though largely remaining an underground kind of genre).

Sonic Youth properly being the most popular band of this genre. 

I played bass in a noise rock band myself around the mid 90's, and later in the 00's in a noise rock and hardcore influenced math rock band with the same lineup, but with an added extra bass player (where I had more sort of a "lead" bass player kind of role and the other bassist sticking mostly to a more traditional supportive bassist kind of role).

Basically it is just more or less experimental rock, partially drawing inspiration from early punk and incorporating noise/atonal and sometimes improvisational elements from avantgarde music and free jazz.  

 

This is a great album from Lightning Bolt :

sounds like some of the early punk bands from the late 70's, early 80's, basically they couldn't play, some of them got signed to earache records though

Pretty good grindcore! This is stuff I listen to to relax. I love how much fun the crowd is having, makes me wish I was younger and fitter.

Instead of getting counted in with the standard ‘1234’, it’s ‘9 cubed plus 8 cubed minus 7’ 😂.

Surely the genre you like has a 'math' sub-genre? Just work it out from there:lol:.

Basically progressive rock for hipsters. :crazy:

How dare you. It's also self-indulgent w***y jazz for hipsters. 

To be fair it probably has the same ratio of utter toss to good stuff as prog, but with less Rick Wakeman in a wizard's cloak. So I think we can all agree it has an edge.

No. Rick Wakeman in a wizards cloak was one of the few good things about prog rock. At least he didn't look as dull as the average Math Rock band.
