The Rezentments - Studio 3 session

It's beginning to feel like every Studio 3 session happens on a day of an extreme cold weather alert. It was bone shattering cold when I found the rest of the Rezentments in Jay's van. Jay is the drummer and has done a Studio 3 session with Spoiled Rotten. He didn't recognize the new location because he didn't realize we had to move from the house on St. George.

Ian Wilkinson, from Big Brother, was doing sound again and was waiting when we finally luged up the equipment. I should have taken a picture of Chris Crash's amp. It had an amazing leopard print which reminded me of the best punk dye job I envyed growing up. Maybe Chris did too. It was awesome looking.
 
I have never met Chris before, but his legend is large having played in many bands such as the Plague and Slander and the Hammer Boys and now Steel Town Spoilers. He also runs a punk store in Hamilton called Crash Landing. They have a facebook page if you are trying to track them down. Chris was good enough to talk with me when I was doing research on Slander and he has amazing stories so I was excited to meet him in person. I was not disappointed.

Jamie Problem had wet my appetite about his new band (The Rezentments) when he came in to be interviewed about Problem Children. And as he belted out songs I could hear some of the PC melodies and optimism in a shitty story. All lived experiences.

Chris had played in a band called the Hammer Boys with Ham'r Mark and they seem to be the core of the band. Mark brought in Mayhem Mark and you can hear the story as better told in this interview we did afterwards. The song "Anxiety" reminded me of "What we want is free" by Articles of Faith. The gang vocals remind me of Sham 69. There are metal flourishes throughout and the song "Dick" approached grind speeds. The band makes the case that they are a mixed bag of influences. The band is working on a studio recording, but here are some songs recorded at CIUT's studio 3.

1. Anxiety
2. Somedays
3. Friendly Fire
4. Hey Pig
5. Piece of Me
6. Photo Bomb
7. You Got Two
8. Crowd Control
9. Barton Street Hag
10. Yer What's Wrong
11. Dick
12. Try

The band also did some IDs for the show and the station based around their songs.

13. EXD ID
14. CIUT ID

And Aldo from Punks 'n Rockers video taped the session.

IDNS Studio 3 session

Matt joked about it being the coldest night of the year. It was pretty damn cold. Seems like a lot of Studio 3 sessions happen on bad weather days. To paraphrase DRI "I'd rather be recording". There was ice everywhere and trying to carry heavy amps over ice was a bit unnerving, but we did get all the equipnent upstairs. Sean, the singer was the only person I had not met before. Daren, the drummer, was in with Make No Gains not that long ago.  Matt had recorded with End Program at the St. George location and Preston did the same with Murdersquad T.O. So some of this was afamiliar and some of this was new. There was some nerves and there was some hearing issues, but as everyone thing was tweaking the session came together. 35 takes produced 11 songs. Ian Wilkinson did all tough work of sifting through all the takes. Here are the finals for you to hear or download:

1. Systematik
2. Without Warning
3. Destroyer of Worlds
4. Global Abuse
5. Eat. Shit. Die.
6. Consumption of Mass Quantities (C.M.Q.)
7. Mental Torpor
8. Unconscionable
9. Apotheosis of Carnage
10. Hierarchy of Power
11. Ad Nauseum

Please note that if you go to the archive.org page there are various formats for these songs.

I also asked Sean to do IDs for the station based on their songs so here they are:

12. CIUT ID
13. EXD ID

They stuck around to answer questions afterwards and you can hear the interview or check out the radio show where it is altogether.

Here is a video clip of the session filmed by Aldo from Punks `n Rockers:



To get in touch with IDNS you can reach them through their bandcamp site at http://idnscrust.bandcamp.com/. There is a contact section on the bottom right hand corner.

MRR Review - Teenanger "Singles Don't Sell" LP


I think the title is a statement by the band who puts out their own releases and does their own distribution and has probably had bad luck with 45 releases. This review is in the January issue of MRR (#368).

MRR Review - Cockney Rejects "Flares 'n Slippers" ep


The latest Ugly Pop Vinyl release gets reviewed in the January issue of MRR (#368).

MRR Review - The Business "Harry May"ep

Here is a review from the January issue of MRR (368) of the Business "Harry May" single. I first heard this song in the film UK DK. It was the best song on that soundtrack, but it seemed to be a different version from the one on the film. Glad someone close to home put this out. It was worth the thirty year wait to hear the version that I have wanted to hear for three decades.
