VAZ Demonstrations In Micronesia – Vinyl LP (transparent blue)

Pressing info : 2017, fourth press on transparent blue vinyl LP, silckscreened heavy cover. Handnumbered. 131 copies.

Don’t let the obtuse “is this maybe a reggae or reggaeton album?” title throw you off; Demonstrations in Micronesia his is one of the world’s finest examples of weird, paranoid propulsive rock and roll that only just barely exists on the fringes of punk, hardcore and metal. It’s essentially “noise rock” genre  perfection, over about forty minutes.

Vaz, then of Los Angeles,Originally recorded for Load, X-Mist and Thin the Herd) are currently on hiatus, unfortunately. Over the years they’ve been a three-piece with both Adam Marx (Seawhores) and Tyler Nolan. At the time of recording, they were a two-piece with two original members of Minneapolis goliaths, Hammerhead. Paul “Apollo Liftoff” Erickson and Jeff Mooridian Jr. wrote the most focused bunch of cold, futuristic noise jams since we-don’t-know-when. Nothing hopeful, melodic, or anything but motorik and ever-forward Fargo-Moorehead desolation rock, done impeccably on Demonstrations.
