God is God… Puke is Puke (Alternative Tentacles)
by Lex Marburger
From Japan to NYC, a combination that’s sure to raise the hackles on a few necks, Ultra Bidé spits out noise combined with that NYC artsy-punk style that always knows how to make a song interesting. From odd time signatures to abrupt shifts in speed and volume, God is God… Puke is Puke (Alternative Tentacles) jumps around like a kangaroo on crack. Named after a device used to wash your genitals (an obvious oversight in American culture, not having those things around), their sound is not unlike being accosted in a subway, late at night, by Hannibal Lechter and the Wolfman, while the T gets into another wreck.
Primal rage and cold insight, both obsessed with destruction and violence. Ultra Bidé also has the ability to forgo any conventional aspect of music and go directly into aural assault, noise generation, with an utter lack of subtlety. However, when they do hit a groove, they’re tight, solid, and completely unstoppable. Their songs are like juggernauts, battering rams of epic proportions. God is God… Puke is Puke has the power to blow the doors off any of the so-called “new punk” bands. Ultra Bidé is punk for the next 10 years, not a rehashing of the last 15.
