about

Saddle-up for Sewers ‘Weight’ LP, for the outback cowboy is dead, this is a completely different smelly log-ride. Bolstered by the recruitment of a second guitarist the band has been able to morph into a less rigid outfit. Releasing the vocalist to do whatever he pleases. The enema has typically been employed by new-age clinics but here Sewers usurp this tool to let go of their old influences. Cleansed, they hone in on their own sound. Each track is a shake of the magic 8-ball forcing you to guess again. Sewers are all too aware of the scorn and malevolence that oozes through every person’s pipes but rather than displacing, they want to share and explore the burden. The rats are still scurrying around the tunnels but now the sludge has reached such pressure that it’s burst the pipes, flush into our clean drinking water! Fear these miscreant mutants as they stick their arms’ out of the manhole looking to snatch a passer-by’s leg.


*****************************

Long awaited follow up to Hoisted displays a maturity to songwriting – who knew? It’s possible this even crosses over into “life”, as these Brisbane miscreants cross the pond to take on the challenge only a USA tour can pose.
Witness Sewers “anti-party rock” for yourself, July 2015.


******************************

Some noteworthy comments about Sewers recent 7″ single, “Chain of Command / Life’s a Boar”:

“Chain of Command” is a compact and gutsy little number that doesn’t try so hard to drag its knuckles, it actually creates some weird spaces with “post-punk” chop-chop and some psycho-delic guitar clouds. Shows some progression, which I dig, as I felt they were going in circles on their LP. “Life’s A Boar” is a terrible play on words (that makes me want to force a Bushpig reference in) but a decent tune that fits the military-themed baggage on the sleeve – like Venom P. Stinger without the drumming, very lean and mean, which is a good look for them. Their best stuff right here.
- Terminal Boredom


“Chain of Command” rips onto their sawing back and forth sound of screechy near feedback in the red guitar saw sound with tough guy vocals ‘look at your badge / look at your number’ as that riff totters back and forth. Crumbling and runny it’s a distant relative to the Mayyors thick sound. It’s rough pieces chopped up slammed together between snare fills. Unsettling, this doesn’t really ever let up once that gate opens.
“Life’s A Boar” rattles in with a slow sludgy rhythm wobbling across the deck in a repeated back and forth chord spaz of black post punk. Bashes of cymbal/snare hits come together like some kind of tribal warning. Rough and primal obsessed with ragged repetition and smudges of metal. Plenty of layers of horrific distortions all attempting to overwhelm. Anti-party rock.
