Trash Talk are currently touring with OFF! and after reading a few times about them, (they played some shows in LA), I decided to check a few videos, and yes, it is what everyone is describing: ‘a riotous performance’, ‘the floor erupted’, 'the rebirth of 80s hardcore shows’, ‘violence metal’, ‘ferocious sound and brutal live displays’…
Mentioned everywhere in the hardcore scene, Trash Talk is from Sacramento, California, and some of their assault-like songs can only last 12 seconds but make people literally crazy, acting from civilized to aggressive animals, not hesitating falling hard on concrete, suddenly releasing the beast inside at the risk to break a few ribs.
I have always wondered, what pushes people behaving to this extreme when they listen to this kind of music? I have read moshing was born in Los Angeles around 1975-80, and it is everywhere now, with more or less intensity, but it is a strange thing when you think about it, a dangerous releasing-energy sport or ritual. I have seen a few injured people during some festivals, and bleeding noses are not really my idea of fun, but I probably sound like a girl…
Anyway these Trash Talk guys have already done a few EPs, 3 studio albums and one on the way this summer; their albums were praised by many magazines and the band is touring non-stop. But I must say I am kind of scared to go to one of their shows, even though it may be interesting on an adrenaline-high point of view. You can check this out to see what I mean:
