When squirming black mold in a dingy Bayshore, CA,
warehouse became sentient, creaked and took humanoid
form it created Blank Square and their singularly oddpunk
debut, Animal I — sounding like the weirder end of
Flesheaters but with a sterility that can only be contemporarily
compared to Total Control’s Aussie hardcore no-wave and
then with a pinch of what made DNA and Mars amazing.
This album is captured with plenty of concrete and sheet
metal kept in the mix and a highlight towards dissonant
syncopations, as if it was recorded in a empty room minus
one chair and definitely down a flight of wet, cement stairs.
Featuring saxophone with a mild but nauseating-at-times
rippling slap delay, the band cruises on a rhythm section
that sounds like the they’ve got another house show to play
tonight after this one. Rectangular in all the right places,
it’s uncomfortable, like sleeping in a car. For listeners who
love art in their sax punk, reaching waaaay back into
California’s punk history (SST would’ve undoubtedly dug
this). There you go, weirdos.
