ORGAN THING: The blistering old school hardcore punk rock sound of White Jazz (and a touch of Sweet Jesus)

White Jazz

Organ Thing of The Day: White Jazz are from Belgium, they seem to have absolutely nothing to with anything Jazz related, none what so ever, unless you like your jazz to sound like BLack Flag or something like that?  White Jazz dish out raging blistering old school feedback-drenched hardcore punk rock, they feature an all-star lineup of punk and hardcore veterans, a line up that boasts members from such delightfully peaceful bands as Rise and Fall,  El Guapo Stuntteam, Supergenius and more, here come some namechecks. White Jazz are
Vince (Rise And Fall, Blind To Faith, Supergenius) – bass, Wim (Rise And Fall, Wiegedood,, Supergenius, The Rottchilds) – drums, Chuck (El Guapo Stuntteam, The Rottchilds) – guitar
and Bjorn (Rise And Fall) – vocals. Actually what is is with that name, nothing dubious we trust…


The White Jazz “Modern Living” EP will be out around about now on Atomic Action.
Meanwhile, also on the same Atomic Action label, a recently released debut album from Massachusett hardcore super group Sweet Jesus (featuring members of Have Heart, Verse, Dropdead, F**king Invincible and more). The band have announced a series of upcoming European tour dates, beginning on August 13th in Belgium.

A band “not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves, “You Destroy Yourself” finds the band exploring deeper into their collective love and admiration of the 80s & 90s DC hardcore sound. Recorded by J. Robbins (Jawbox / Burning Airlines) in Baltimore, “You Destroy Yourself” features guest appearances by Shawn Brown (Swiz / Dag Nasty / Red Hare) and Andy Norton (Praise).
