MEMORY AS PERFECTION/SCENT OF HUMAN HISTORY - split LP
This split 12" features two newer bands, Long Island's Scent of Human History and Louisiana's Memory as Perfection, teaming up to offer varied yet complimentary approaches to modern hardcore. Scent of Human History, containing most of the former members of Sometimes Walking, Sometimes Running, give us four songs that go back and forth from moody, brooding instrumental segments to fast and chaotic screamy hardcore. Hypnotizing at one moment, violent and spastic the next, Scent creates a dramatic roller coaster that fans of 12 hour turn and PG. 99 will enjoy. Memory as Perfection offer up five songs in a different vein. Laid back yet driven, the music shifts from clean, noodley and jazzy guitars - similar perhaps to Off Minor - to straight forward distorted rock all driven by pounding basslines. More shouting than screaming, the vocals could be likened to an angry D. Boon. The influence of Shotmaker can be heard at times, but Memory as Perfection has their own thing going on. The record is packaged in a beautifully letterpress jacket with an original block print done by the amazing hot iron press. All profits from this record go to the Long Island Freewheel Bike Collective and New Orleans' Plan B Bike co-op. (Waking Records #2)
