The Pelican and The Hydra

Pelican’s Trevor de Brauw delivers an homage to the Hydra Head label. ‘With straining ears and bulging eyes, While blinded by fierce calcium rays, The trembling victim tribute pays Of song or measure, mime or jest, To soothe the savage Hydra’s breast.'

Axe Murderers

The thud of jackboots. Justin Trosper of Sub Pop’s Survival Knife and Unwound “The Most Important Band of the 90’s” sings of the great crowds agitated by work, pleasure and revolt; the multi-colored and polyphonic surf of revolutions in modern capitals. Poetry is a violent assault on the forces of the unknown, forcing them to bow before man. There is no masterpiece that has not an aggressive character. Beauty exists only in struggle.
