plays it slow and low ...consist of 8 string bass (run through a few amp
setups), drums with triggers (playing samples of detuned drums and
explosions), ...both sing (through a processor that adds a chord to our
voices) and try to play keyboard pedalboards with (their) feet. This is
not all hulk smash is, but for now it is the easiest way to describe
(them). ABIKU -Baltimore,MD femme vocaled electro-punk-core-noise! KID

the seconds with their flashing lights and push-button action! Social
Junk is so advanced that observing a Social Junk entertainment

lifestyle involves (constant) moving from Montreal to Istanbul, during
which he collects the objects with meaning and role for his personal
voyage and he makes them sound as a contemporary shaman. And the objects
sound due to his magic, prayer or threatening, and they sound their
immanent, essential voice for this very occasion, for the nomad will
