MP3: “Kutter” by the Unholy Two
Kevin Elliott writes:
It wouldn’t be a Bands to Watch list without a little controversy, would it? To start things off, we chose the most controversial band Columbus currently has to offer in the Unholy 2. If you thought that leader Chris Lutzko was only known for riding couches and telling off-color jokes at inappropriate times, you obviously haven’t heard his band yet. The trio’s infant recordings may be fogged in feedback and deafening shrill, but that’s just part of the carnage. Recalling vintage Touch and Go vets or AmRep alums like Big Black and the Cherubs, their sound is abrasive and dark, repetitive and guttural; with a creative streak that overrides the negatives.
