I have never been able to explain Child Bite to others very well. Some people come out to their shows and love it and some people think that it is one of the weirdest bands that they have ever heard. I remember watching the crowd during Wild In The Streets a few years ago, they were delighted and confused at the same time. Apparently, I am not the only one who hasn't been able to put them in a nice little box.
I just read a review by Chris Besinger from STNNNG that described the new album in a very interesting way. He states "This record is only 19 minutes long, but it is so dense with ideas and riffs and biting, late-era Black Flag guitar solos and clanking, chugging bass lines and splattering drum blasts and yowling vocals you will be gnawing on it like gristle for months to come". He also goes on to talk about how much this band changes from album to album and how intense the new record is. If that doesn't peak your interest I do not know what will. I know that Child Bite is a little intense for some of you, but I dig it. My favorite part is how passionate these guys are when they are performing, it makes the live show worth attending. If you would like to do just that you can head out to their record release party this Friday, November 21st at PJ's Lager House.
Woodpecker From Mars, Acid Witch, Minus 9, and Her Dark Host will be joining them on stage. It's $10 to get in, but you get either an album or a CD with the price of admission. Child Bite will also finally have some shirts for sale in various sizes. The show is 21 and over and doors are at 9 p.m. PJ's is located at 1254 Michigan Ave. in Detroit.
