"Distort New York" is the debut 7" by BRAIN SLUG. This one will get you 5 nasty slaps in the face taking influence from Boston classics like SS DECONTROL or newer bands like OMEGAS.

In Effect Review:
"The Brooklyn DIY hardcore-loft scene, by way of Bushwick and South Williamsburg, is spawning some top-notch bands these days. Case in point is Brian Slug. Judging by the EP's title, I was expecting an all-out Japanese hardcore influenced thrash assault a-la Gauze/Outo/Lip Cream. What I got instead was something a 'lil closer to home; a mid-tempo tribal beat that owes a debt to classic creepy crawl masters like SSD and The Abused, along with current "revivalist" bands like Fucked Up & their ilk. The singer's voice, while buried a bit in the mix, reminds me of Jackal from the old Philly band YDI, who along with NA's John Brannon, had some of the meanest sounding vocals in hardcore ever. I read Brain Slug's interview with Tony Rettman for VICE and they come off sounding exactly like their music: pissed off, full of youthful indifference, loaded with a healthy bullshit detector and filled with choice quotes regarding their Long Island upbringing. A band that would have fit in perfectly at A7 or Boston in '82, at Abc No Rio in '91 or wherever the current crop of hardcore purists congregate these days. Hopefully in dimly-lit underground spaces, all the better to celebrate the timeless appeal of 3-chord skanking tunes, as exemplified by this top-notch release.
