Awesome Color and Hair Police


Worksound (map) Southeast
Mon., April 19 2010 21+

Lexington, Kentucky/Ypsilanti, Michigan's Hair Police stand as one of America's foremost wreckers of hearing currently operating. Like many noise units, the trio of Trevor Tremaine, Robert Beatty, and Mike Connelly (the last of whom is also in Wolf Eyes) deal in extremities of frequencies and emotions. They strive to push you to your mental and physical threshold with their eruptive, emergency-room-panic splatter of tones. Hair Police translate into sound the spirit of Sam Kinison at his most vein-bulging end-of-tetherness. By contrast, Awesome Color—who record for Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label—dig their Motor City rock roots with faithfulness and fervor. You know the litany: Stooges, MC5, Alice Cooper, Nugent. For this Detroit native, it's a rust-belt-raunchy sound that's as familiar and comfortable as a mother's heartbeat. You may like their meaty garage rock, too. DAVE SEGAL
