See You Next Tuesday
Parasite

Here’s one quick question for you to determine if you should continued reading this review or click elsewhere:

Do you like The Number Twelve Looks Like You?If you answered no, go read another review. Right now. If you answered “yes” and especially enjoyed the bands debut EP Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses. Then read on.

Michigan’s See You Next Tuesday are a little redundant in their spazzy chaotic, grindy screamy noise, but they do it acceptably enough and hit all the checkmarks for fans of the genre: unreadable underground logo, quirky band name, off the wall song titles, short spazzy bursts cacophonous dissonance, breakdowns, high pitched screams and ultra deep pig squeals, lengthy experimental track, recognized producer (Andreas Magnussum-The Black Dahlia Murder, Scarlet) and a heavy touring schedule. All marks for a band that Ferret should be pushing amid their rather unimpressive slew of recent releases (Maylene & The Sons of Disaster not included).

However, at 18 minutes that comprise Parasite is over before you know it and as the band is experimenting with a slower sludgier track (“Pogonatrophy, Pt. 2: The Parasite”) the ‘album’ is over. Otherwise, the other 13 short bursts of ‘Hotopicore’, is a feral if familiar tone. From opener “Baby, You Make Me Wish I Had Three Hands”, through “Before I Die I’m Gonna Fuck Me a Fish” and “Just out of Curiosity, Are Your Parents Siblings?” the band squeals and rumbles with aplomb and relative skill, but nothing I haven’t heard before on 10,000 myspace pages. The highs are appropriately discordant, and the lows are lumbering gruntfests (such as “Here Take This Pill”), but not truly structured as normal deathcore as such.

This is the personification of what the kids are calling ‘grindcore’ these days. Fans of Ed Gein, Robinson, The Orangeburg Massacre, The Network, (or most of the Black market Activities stuff for that matter), any of the so called modern ‘grind’ bands that are amusing kids nowadays should get this. Personally, I’m a little burnt out on the stuff.
