The Slaughterhouse Chorus rose out of the ashes of hardcore-inspired ska-punk act Public Access. But if you're hoping for a continuation of that sound, you'll be sorely disappointed (and if you were...really? How much of that stuff does someone really want to hear?). Instead, the band's five-song de.


The Slaughterhouse Chorus rose out of the ashes of hardcore-inspired ska-punk act Public Access. But if you're hoping for a continuation of that sound, you'll be sorely disappointed (and if you were...really? How much of that stuff does someone really want to hear?). Instead, the band's five-song demo is an able offering of cowpunk/folk-punk romps on the tip of early--early--Fake Problems and such.

While one guesses the band ain't about to forget where they came from--they dedicate opener "Guns and Cattle" to similarly defunct ska-punks the Fad--they're certainly plowing along an acoustic/electric plain of country influence and punk aggression. The band's vocalist gets on with an extra-gritty, gravelly growl with "Peas and Beans," while "You're No Good" is indeed a cover of the Jesse Fuller/Bob Dylan standard.

There's definitely a bit of potential present on this little release, and to boot, it carries over PA's DIY aesthetics proudly.

"How much of that stuff does someone really want to hear?"

The answer is "a lot"

Also, solid review, glad to see them get love somewhere other than the Community Records forums
