Unsane
Formed - 1988 in New York.

Noise rock trio of Chris Spencer (The Cutthroats 9), Vincent Signorelli (Swans) and Dave Curran (The Cutthroats 9 & The J.J. Paradise Players Club). The original lineup consisted of Spencer, Pete Shore and drummer Charlie Ondras, who passed away from a drug overdose in 1992.

The video for the song "Scrape" (from their 1995 album Scattered, Smothered & Covered) received a lot of airplay on MTV and became their biggest hit to date.

Caveman drumming, tooth-rattling bass, painfully distorted guitars, and buried yells are the elements at play here, and on debut EP Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship they sound like they were recorded with one lone mic, hanging from a noose in a Philly warehouse.

Plaque Marks credit Texas legends Rusted Shut and Cherubs for inspiration, as well as the early works of contemporaries Pissed Jeans – and while some of the members' other work, particularly Fight Amp, resides in this ballpark too, Plaque Marks take it to new depths. This is noise-rock in its simplest and most corrosive state, and Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship is right at home on Minneapolis label Learning Curve Records, responsible for releases by Vaz, Hammerhead, and Gay Witch Abortion.
Hex Horizontal
Hex Horizontal
Hex Horizontal is an experimental, instrumental, noise-rock duo from Los Angeles. Instrumentation consists of electric guitar, homemade oscillators, and a minimal drum set.

“Hex Horizontal... wrestles rock music’s pre-existing syntaxes to the ground, and reassembles the pieces into free-wheeling miniature dialogues. Free rock music isn’t normally made as much to enjoy as these guys produce it. To boot, there’s some downright clairvoyant improvisation between the duo.”
-The Quietus

"Hex Horizontal say what's on their collective mind without actually using words, instead employing harsh slabs of electronic noise interspersed with intimately spacey prog-rock interludes."
