How many New School jazz majors does it take to screw up grunge unrecognizably?
Not sure exactly, but it’s the same amount it takes to build out a loft apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Spearheaded by guitarist and singer Justin Frye, PC Worship records trashed, lazy punk in the band’s living room when they’re not flipping around the channels on a cable subscription Time Warner forgot to cut off. Two cats vie for affection in the loft space that houses the members of PC Worship, as well as with incestuously related bands The Dreebs, Ashcan Orchestra, Pterodactyl, Cloud Becomes Your Hand and whatever one-offs these Renaissance stoners think are funny. Here in Brooklyn, we like to name our homes as much as we like to name our bands. This loft is called The Wallet.
PC Worship are perhaps the best known band from this collective. Their scuzzy, out-of-tune take on psych-rock reminds of Pink Reason or Psychedelic Horseshit. Kreephaus, who released the band’s recent Dread Head 7″, also released The Dreebs’ LP, which is more progressive by comparison. Sections of the music are fast and chaotic like Flipper, but with a hazy smear of guitar and violin that lift the band up into Dischord-era art rock.
