The following is a review I found that I thought you all might like. The review originally appeared in Heart attack 32. For those who know heart attack is a punk hardcore scene from the states; for those who don't you do now. Having heard and seen these guys live I can attest for the quality of the music although the review itself is a tad pretentious.

XENOPHOBIC XYLOPHONES: demo tape

What is there to say about Xenophobic Xylophones that can't be said in a noisy chaotic mess of dismembered bodies and brains. The music on this tape is so discordant and chaotic that it feels like being sucked into the midst of a boeing 747 engine slowly. XX (as their fans call them) are a three piece hailing from the city of Melbourne Australia. G. Cunt, J. Coward and T. Liar as they call themselves play music that make The Locust sound like The Beach Boys. Fourteen songs clocking in at 5 minutes and forty five seconds (comes on 12 minute tape- both sides the same, one in mono, one in stereo) and with songs like PLASTIC PEOPLE, WITH US, WE GOT HIM XX are definitely worth shelling out the $2 (Australian!) for the cassette tape.

contact details: 45 Thretren Street Brunswick East Melbourne Australia 3061


To prove the genius of XX I've transcribed the lyrics from the cassette tape. I would scan them but my scanners kinda broken. Enjoy the lyrical energy that is G. Cunt.

Lyrics

you haven't heard them because the cassette tape was released in 2002 and then the band split up shortly after.

there's talk of them reforming but there's always talk of that

i can play you the tape if you want.
