New LP in a ltd. edition of 300 by my fave midwestern noiseniks, BOY DIRT CAR: Familia, released on the After Music Recordings label outta Minneapolis. Nice silk-screened cover, and a very cool racket indeed. BDC have been around for almost 30(!) years, and infamously feature two members, Dan Kubinski and Keith Brammer, from one of the great US u/ground rock bands of yesteryear, Die Kreuzen. It's the sound of punkers weened on (GI) and Pink Flag exploring new sonic capabilities via Branca and Throbbing Gristle. Well, at least it was, back in the '80s. These days, BDC are like a noise heritage act, and I don't mean that as an insult. Most avenues of experimentation have already been explored; for me it's simply a case of who does it well, and BDC always fulfill that obligation. These'll be gone before you know it, so get in quick.
