Process of Elimination – a noise-oriented punk
project from California – and their three-track “Won’t Comply” EP. It’s
truly a musical abnormality, which is rather appropriate considering the
band’s cassette was originally released by Abnormal Broadcasting: a DIY label known for putting out cassettes from assorted Californian punk acts, including Sunk, The Snails, The Must, P.E.A.R.L., Race Car, S.B.F., Maricón, Phoebe, and a few others. Process of Elimination
is not unlike the majority of bands in their catalog, incorporating
dense, blackened guitar tones in the vein of hardcore, albeit with a
lighter, delirious approach delineated by swirling, metallic
noisemakers, pulsing, mechanical drumbeats, squeal-prone riffs, and
reverb-drenched wails emanating from a less-than lucid vocalist, making
it more of a new wave-like expenditure than an outright hardcore
slobberknocker – in a sense it’s almost like a dorkier Sunk, meaning
it’s similarly engrossing and raunchy by nature. Clocking in at a mere
five minutes, Process of Elimination’s debut EP is an
unconventional deviation – however primitive it may be – from the
by-the-numbers hardcore formula, which is perfectly suited under the
Neck Chop umbrella.
