Sharing three members with !!!, Out Hud formed at the same time and walk a not too dissimilar path ie. sampled beats (no drummer), a disregard for traditional verse-chorus song structures, a drive to explore virgin sonic territories. Although, without all the shouting and swearing of !!!, it's a slightly more chilled affair, -for one, there are no vocals, and there's a cello in the line up, along with lots of samplers n synths. It's "chilled" in a white noise, bleeps and funky beats kind o way.
Having all served apprentices in various hardcore/punk bands, these are punks for whom jamming is not a dirty word. I love the idea of jamming on samplers, I always liked the mental image of the bomb squad jamming with four samplers in the studio when making public enemy tracks...
This comes from the 2002 debut album "street dad".
