8/2: Anal Cunt at Grog Shop

Posted By on Fri, Jul 31, 2009 at 8:00 AM

As long as there are people who believe in decency and political correctness, there will be bands like Anal Cunt to make fun of them. Massachusetts’ infamous all-nonsense hardcore group has been alienating listeners for more than 20 years, despite numerous lineup changes, many breakups and one coma. For the uninitiated, here’s a simple guide to their catalog: heavily distorted guitar and nonsensical riffs; blast-beat drums in a fast, loose fashion; ludicrous, offensive titles; songs that last less than a minute. That’s about it. Aside for some self-referential lyrics and an album of acoustic love songs, Anal Cunt offer little in the way of substance. Time has yet to tell if singer Seth Putnam, guitarist Josh Martin and drummer Tim Morse will be elevated to music-legend status. But let’s be honest: Anal Cunt exist only to piss you off. And that’s not such a bad thing — as a matter of fact, it’s fairly entertaining. Just make sure to heckle them; if you cheer too much, they may stop playing. Easy Action and Strong Intention kicks things off at 8 p.m. at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.5588). Tickets: $10. — Nick DeMarino
