Formed in 1982, the quintessential New York noise band Live Skull are back this year with a brand-new album ‘Saturday Night Massacre’, out in October. Together with other New York bands Sonic Youth and Swans, Live Skull defined the term “noise rock”.
In his much-quoted review for The New York Times, Robert Palmer declared, “With each new record, New York’s Live Skull delivers a more concentrated brand of emotional intensity, a more ferociously disciplined sonic assault”.
Often brutal and yet strangely seductive, full of hooks and emotional intensity, and with a drone-dance-quality that reminds us of the early Velvet Underground.
After a gap of 30 years, Live Skull are back! The band’s current core consists of Mark C., Rich Hutchins, and Kent Heine.
