[cassette corner] Lube’s gritty sound rocks and rules

 

There's something dirty and raw about Allston's new band LUBE that rubs me the right way. LUBE is somewhat of a family affair -- comprised of brothers Andrew and Garrett Nordstrom, and joined by drummer Justin Rizzo. The three ex-FROGBALL members have shed their party-punk sound and silliness for something grittier, darker and much more rock n' roll. The familial theme doesn't end with the members' shared DNA; the band just released two new songs online titled "Doing Drugs with Dad" and "Making Bombs with Mom" proving that parents know how to party, too.

Their first release, a self titled 12-minute demo, was recorded with a 4-track named "Mr. Fart." Distorted vocals and addictive guitar riffs make the demo a must listen even if track titles like "Lice" and "Unscratchable Itch" suggest staying away. To get your hands on a copy of their demo email LUBE at lubesemailaddress@gmail.com.

For more modern folk who don't own cassette players you can download and listen to their demo online for free on their Bandcamp page.
