EP: Body Farm Release Split with Slut Bomb – So This Is Progress



Noise punk is a variation of hardcore that is what it is for a reason, the message is of such, that screaming it out is a release as much as a getting the word out. Hence all releases tend to come with lyric sheets.

Central Ohio based punk-leaning, political power violence quartet Body Farm have released another two songs via a split with Cincinnati’s Slut Bomb this week.  Again, the group makes no apologies for its political alignment with Planned Parenthood, Sex Militant, BQIC, Unharming Ohio and others all very different causes, but all worthy and much needed in some form or another, not only the U.S. but around the world. 

Four tracks in total, all of which are no more than you would come to expect from the genre, it is hard to be objective about the music, when in truth, the whole concept of a noise punk song is purely to get across the message. 

Body Farms offering is what feels like a track joined in the middle by a narrative, Mass – Welp, Covfefe is what can only be likened to a Crass style mix of music and word, heavy guitar shredding and power vocals squeeze all the Political, Social and Moral juices out of this track as it possibly can.

Slut Bomb on the other hand have two whole separate tracks “Get It Right” & “Wall” two beasts of hardcore with the very strange exception of Walls almost Johnny Cash intro, to soften the blow.

Although the above seems to be the norm in this genre, it does feel a chance is lost sometimes, if you want to get your message to a larger audience, would it therefore be much better served by not alienating some softer elements of the music buying public.  Would this albeit soften the message, maybe it would.  This is a whole new debate thread in the making.
