here’s a cool punk band from champaign, illinois. under-appreciated (as most hardcore is in this city) and overlooked, laughboy bring something different to a derivative sea of mosh heavy breakdowns and fashion punk posturing. laughboy’s sound is unique mainly because of the guitar work. this band started a very different one, and evolved into a psychedelic mess. something i must say that i do quite enjoy, there definitely needs to be more psych-punk bands! the song i posted is called “braindead” and it comes from their self-titled tape released on lumpy’s (of lumpy and the dumpers fame) tape label, spotted race. unfortunately this tape is gone, but the files have been ripped and put online, do a google search ya nerd!
