What a hammer can do, not even the most advanced computer can do.
How it sounds
Like a punk band jamming with friends at the same time that the craftsmen are doing work in the same place and somewhere next door a jazz musician is heard rehearsing.
Basically, like a band, rehearsing and at the same time all tuning their instruments together without much success, but the result sounds good!
Why listen to it
Because they gave rise to new genres of rock and new musical pursuits to both musicians and music lovers.
Because white noise pierces the ears and then enters the brain and destroys it, turning its owner into a zombie
Where we meet it
New York, USA
When did it start
From the late 60’s to the ’80s, but the time frame is generally blurred
Who are the pioneers
The Velvet Underground 1968 album “White Light / White Heat” is considered a milestone for this genre, but also for 4-5 more.
Sonic Youth managed to get the genre to its zenith, but several years later.
Certainly, The Stooges also put a little stone in the creation of the genre.
You have to listen
The Butthole Surfers, Cows, Dinosaur Jr., Swans, White Zombie, Killdozer, Flipper, Lightning Bolt
Days of glory
Well, now we say in circles of music lovers only.
Sometime in the late ’80s and early’ 90s, it was as if it came out of its shell until it contributed to the musical explosion of other genres through its bowels.
Excessive experimentation essentially keeps it in the realm of the cult.
Whatever “polishes” the sound you consider hostile and obsession with its harshness is rather excessive.
What is it confused with
With Experimental rock, punk rock, Indie Rock, Grunge, alternative rock, post-punk
How do you describe it to an irrelevant person
Have you seen a band tuning their instruments at the same time?
This along with a vacuum cleaner, from those old ones that make noise.
