CrimSane - "ChinaFastGrow"

Fucked Up are taking a quick break at the moment, and the band’s members are working on their own projects, like guitarist Ben Cook’s Young Guv And The Scuzz. Frontman Damian Abraham, meanwhile, has his own thing going: A “kushcore” band called CrimSane, which also features Matt Delong of No Warning and Violent Minds. And if Fucked Up’s 2011 album David Comes To Life was the glossiest thing they’ve ever done, the demo of CrimSane’s song “ChinaFastGrow” is the opposite extreme: A lurching, fuzzed-out, discordant scream-trudge. Grab it below.

No word on a CrimSane album or EP or anything. Damian’s wife is having another kid any day now, so I don’t imagine he’ll have a whole lot of energy to spare anytime soon. (And actually, now that I mention it, my wife is too. So if my byline disappears from Stereogum for a little while, that’s what’s happening.)

  1. Nice surprise, considering I got the feeling from Damian that he wanted to lay off from music for awhile.

    Congratulations are also in store for Tom for spreading his demon seed for a second time. May you continue to find odd realizations as to what makes a good indie-centric bedtime lullaby when putting the kid to sleep. This also begs the question, though — If I send in an “edgy / hard” band-related story to the tip jar in your absence, will there be anyone around to hear it?
