Distort Jersey City: Pink Reason & Nuclear Santa Claust Live

Pink Reason

If the Free Music Archive has started sounding a little more hardcore to you lately, shake your quiet down fists at WFMU's Distort Jersey City. Here are a couple acts they've recently recorded live.

According to their Facebook, Pink Reason’s interests are tragedy, suffering and excess. Hailing from eternal swing state Ohio, the Columbus quartet recently celebrated its tenth anniversary. They’ve toured Europe, Australia and New Zeleand, releasing a slew of albums, singles and E.P.s in between on the Siltbreeze label and Savage Quality Recordings. Singer Kevin Failure’s impassioned growl underpinned by Matt Horsehit’s rhythm guitar make for lofi that’s as excessive as it gets.

Nuclear Santa Claust, as the name suggests, are both toxic and explosive. With Jim Orgin and Zach G’s shared vocals and three chord strums and Brenden Beecy’s crusading drums, the trio wears its Ramones inspiration on its leather jacket sleeves. But the NSC sound is more frenzied and ramshackle than its predecessors. ‘Bikini Island’, off their self-titled 2011 EP is the Rockaway Beach for a polluted generation.
