about

Skrot Up | SUT77
C20
Edition of 50

Merx is the most highly-educated band of professionals in LA. Maybe that's why the members have chosen to keep their off-the-grid musical hobby so minimally simplistic. Each one of the nine songs on Merx's debut CS/LP is comprised of looped synthetic drums, repetitively melodic bass and synth lines, and post-apocalyptic Morricone-esque guitar bits. Over the top, a very tall man in a Throbbing Gristle/Mickey Mouse/Grateful Dead parody tee speak/sings shouts/whoops like a baritone hybrid of Ian Curtis, Nick Cave, and Alan Vega. His lyrics are simplified existential philosophies that seem worthy of printing, studying, analyzing, and pondering for all eternity. The songs are short, memorable, and timeless post-punk numbers that sound similar, but not exactly like anything we've ever heard before. The band member's education obviously extends beyond the classroom and into the rock'n'roll realm, specifically UK circa 79-81 (Permanent Records)
