 Magik Markers (1 Albums, 6 Tracks)

Artist

Transplanted to Brooklyn and tightened to a two-piece, the Magik Markers were considerably better than last time I saw them, almost two years ago supporting a noise outfit called "Duck" that happened to include Thurston Moore. This show was the launch of a Canadian tour.
CURATOR:
Label:
  • Ecstatic Peace
MEMBERS:
  • Pete Nolan (drums)
  • Leah Quimby (guitar)
  • Elisa Ambrogio (guitar
  • vocal)

With broad strokes of No Wave and classic hardcore sensibilities, the Magik Markers have often been saddled with comparsions to Teenage Jesus and especially Red Transistor, though in their five year wake of trashed drumkits and broken guitars they've done equal amounts of introspective sound explorations as well. Live, Pete Nolan (drums), Leah Quimby (guitar) and Elisa Ambrogio (guitar, vocal) totally spraypaint the walls; if you are missing the adrenaline-to-the-heart shock of live Harry Pussy, Minor Threat and primo Black Flag (Elisa is way more Keith Morris than Lydia Lunch), or worship the meltdown guitar rumbling and off-balance wooziness of the Dead C circa "Harsh 70's Reality" this may very well be your new fave action trio.
