The Kowloon Walled City is primarily metallic, built on a hardcore foundation, and oozing with sludge. In 2008, this 4-piece from the Tenderloin released their Turk Street EP on vocalist/guitarist Scott Evans' own Wordclock Records (co-run by Brad Derrick aka DJ Methodikal) in an edition of 300 red translucent 10'' slabs o' vinyl, 100 hand-silkscreened cd-r's, and an unlimited amount of free mp3s. More info and a .zip w/ artwork can be found here.

In 2009, The Perpetual Motion Machine released the group's full-length debut. Gambling On The Richter Scale is available on vinyl, CD, and free mp3. A feature by San Francisco's local record shop Aquarius Records compares the band to 90s heavies like Karp and Killdozer, and declaring "goddamn if there doesn't seem to be a bit of a modern noise rock scene brewing, bands popping up here and there, pushing all those noise rock buttons, and totally hitting the spot."
