16 - _Scott Case_
(Pessimiser Records, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
Nothing like getting your hands on one of your fave band's early out of print material, right? Totally underrated, California sludge/noisecore outfit 16 have worked hard over the years to dish out some of the most bastard noise concoctions that has surfaced. It was dirty, ruthless and sometimes unbearable to listen to. But it was great. Fucked up and doped out to the max, 16 has managed to assemble a truly killer group of old numbers that really define the band's evolution over the years. From jagged numbers like "Attention Span" onto "Loafer" and "Texas Tunnel", this California outfit dig their dirty fangs into us, spreading their fiendishly grotesque moments of creativity onto us in a rough fashion, similar to the way a school yard bully would rough you up for your lunch money. I hope this don't signify the end of 16, as I'm always up for new material from one of the best bands out there. Music fans interested in hearing some good recent 16 material, be sure to check out 1996's _Drop Out_ on Theologian Records.
