The Chemistry of Common Life

Performers Fucked Up

Matador | October 7, 2008 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
Fucked Up: Pink Eyes (vocals); Mr. Jo (guitar, drum, hand claps); 10,000 Marbles (guitar, tambourine, hand claps); Mustard Gas, Gulag (guitar); Jane Fair (flute); Max McCabe Locos (organ); Jonathan Adjemian (Farfisa); Justin Small, Kat' Taylor (background vocals).
After the 18-minute single, "Year of the Pig," which eloquently spoke for the often voiceless Canadian sex workers, fans had no idea what to expect from Toronto's most adventurous punk band. THE CHEMISTRY OF COMMON LIFE is often bruising, but as much for its quiet moments as its heavy ones. Singer Pink Eyes has retained his blustering, gruff voice, but the music surrounding him is more subtle and shaded, borrowing equally from artier acts like Sonic Youth and the blunt force of Black Flag. "Crooked Head" and "No Epiphany" arrive on waves of feedback and frothy washes of keening guitar, but sturdy tracks like "Black Albino Bones" and "Days of Last" stomp and rumble with pure vintage hardcore strength. The album's closing title track, clocking in at around seven minutes, puts it all together seamlessly.
