Pop Rocks: Bionic, Fucked Up

Posted by MP / October 9, 2006

I arrive at Petit Campus a little late, missing the first two bands from the Jonathon Cummins-curated shindig. I am told before entering that the Disco Tigers were a little "white belty." Since I came to the event for only the truest of Rock N' Roll I can't say I was too upset that I missed their set. But once I am told that I have just missed Born Dead Icons' set of Discharge-inspired punk rock I begin beating myself up, literally-punching myself in the face muttering "stupid, stupid, STUPID."

Just as I begin to draw blood from my forehead, Fucked Up take the stage with a straight-up punk rock ferocity that makes my problems melt away. This is some serious 80s hardcore shit; all that's missing is the audience violence and the cops breaking it up. You can feel the cyclonic fury building up inside of you, trying to escape and goddammit, it feels great.

Bionic, the band that never disappoints, with the true sounds of Rock 'N Roll on their side, predictably tears it up. With these guys at the forefront of the war against the anti-rock conspiracy I feel as though we just may win.

Man, some of Dave's other shots of Cummings are wacky-looking. I mean, the dude is only 21, and yet, in some of them, with that shaved head and beard he looks 55 and mean. Or, crotchety, even.
