 I’ve been a Fudge Tunnel fan since as long as I can remember but I had never heard THEORY OF RUIN until a few years back. I assumed they were somekind of metalcore band until I picked up their first album, it’s a good record but the following ‘Front Line Poster Child’ mini album is my pick. It’s an extremely dynamic record which I think drummer Ches Smith is probably most responsible for. His syncopated polyrhythms provide a continual push/pull undertow to the music. This first THEORY OF RUIN 7″ from 1999 was released on Elastic, the label run by a guy from Fu Manchu. The 3 tracks here are very visceral & punishing, an almost replica of the blueprint Steve Albini laid out. If you’re anything like me then there is always a place for music like this:
