Purity Pledge (Southern)
by Scott Hefflon
Todd is Craig Clouse, a Texan in London. He played in a Texas hardcore band called Crown Roast, Negative Step, and AmRep’s Hammerhead. Noisy, demented, heavy rock like Tad, Killdozer, and Jesus Lizard. There can be beauty in such ugly music. There’s some here. There’s also a lot of go-nowhere noise. Like hanging out with a loud, aggressive drunk who sometimes sez something funny or stumbles and you laugh with him. Other times, he’s an annoyance.
