AUDIO: Gorilla Knifefight – “An Ode To The Gorilla / An Ode To The Knife”

Duck Earnhardt, also known as Matt Glassel, released a two-track cassette this month dripping with ransom note, stenciled DIY aesthetic and amp-busting riffs pulled from the American hardcore wave of the early ‘80’s. A single maxed-out guitar blares an air raid siren noise over a simple drum machine track while Glassel belts out lyrics about awaking something primal in yourself. Glassel’s commitment to do-it-yourself ethics and music go without saying, as he’s been part of dozens of other punk projects and has released a countless number of self-released recordings. His Bandcamp page said he’s releasing another EP in October, so keep an eye intact.
