Nightstick - _Death to Music_
(Relapse, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
What is it about this band? Nothing seems to work, yet it does? Does that make sense? Am I coocoo for Cocoa Puffs? I don't know, man, there is just something so vivid and mind-bending about the music of offbeat, noise junkies Nightstick... With enough sadistic vocals, uneven drums and guitar riffs that fade in an out more than a coked up air traffic controller, _Death to Music_ is the perfect symbol of an all night bender gone way out of control. Think "rockbottom, lying in an alley way" kind of feeling and you get the feelings you end up with after a few listens. Rocking enough to draw you in, yet unpleasant enough to make you want to turn away, Nightstick somehow keep it busy -- and that is a good thing. Music intended for those who walk the earth fucked up 24 hours a day.
