My Lai - Learn... Forget... Relearn + Pony Soldier EP



Ah, one month later and I post again... It's a miracle! I'll try to keep the posting less sporadic...

Here today, we have a great specimen... My Lai, are a Chicago band named after a civilian massacre committed by the US Army during the Vietnam War. (RIP) They were active from 96-99, and played frantic, spastic, emotional hardcore; sometimes known as emo-violence. These dudes didn't release much as far as I know, (I think they released one picture disc other than the LP&EP I'm posting here) and they seem to be relatively unknown, compared to some of their contemporaries (Usurp Synapse, Orchid, As The Sun Sets)... Anyways, to me they sound like a good mix of HeWhoCorrupts or KungFuRick (the HWC incarnation of the late 90's), Orchid, and early Daughters... Lots of brutalisms countered by bits of calm, then off to more pummeling mathy riffage and some blasterbation...

I think you guys will really like this stuff...

Also, for those of you asking me to update more often; don't worry. I just got a new stylus for my record player and over the last couple months I've been buying discs like crazy... I'll definitely be uploading a bunch in the coming days and weeks... Look forward to some stuff from: Creation is Crucifixion, Bastardass/Say Why, Usurp Synapse/Index for Potential Suicide, Combatwoundedveteran/Orchid, a 4way split with Brodys Militia and others...

(Cheers! Cunthead!)

saw this band in california with cattle decapitation, kung fu rick and run for your fucking life. also in chicago with behead the prophet, charles bronson, and hate wave

they put out the pony soldier ep, the 3.16.68 ep, the learn, forget, relearn lp, and a one sided seven inch called the sound of leaving trains that, i think, was sold on their last tour.
