TONIGHT ... IDES! LIVE NJHC on My Castle of Quiet!!

There's so much great, new hardcore, especially in the last 10 years or so, that I can hardly keep up, especially with all my other assorted musical fetishes, but I try! ...And New Jersey, like Boston, being one of the places where the genre was originally born and thrived, is no slouch in modern terms.

With that in mind, MCoQ is proud to present a live set from IDES, a band just on the approach to some peak / plateau of their powers. IDES pack more variation and energy into their 40-sec. to 1.5-min. songs than most bands in punk put into songs twice or three tines as long.

And not to overemphasize the "female singer" aspect, but Jillian Keats' vocals do add an enticing element to IDES' sound, a relevance of fresh energy and (girl) power, and fans of Nausea and Crass, and other legendary female-fronted hardcore bands, will not be disappointed.

You can listen to their demo and single at the their bandcamp page (linked above and below), which will give you more than an idea of what to expect, though I also imagine IDES to be a band so fresh and so vital, that they're probably getting better and better with each show and practice session.

I climb to the top of the impossibly long spiral staircase, and toll the bell (for thee) @ midnight.
IDES go live @ 12:30 a.m. approx.
WFMU 91.1 FM (NY/NJ)
WMFU 90.1 FM (Hudson Valley) live on the Web, with real-time accuplaylist and message board.
