Lightning Bolt‘s noise-metal is all-eclipsing. These two Brians — Chippendale on drums and Gibson on bass — specialize in carpal-tunnel-inducing, Rhode Island havoc that’s way more controlled than it appears at first blush.
Chippendale guests on Björk’s forthcoming album, churns out demented comics and spins his muse into wilder pastures as Black Pus. Gibson gets his twisted animation on with Barkley’s Barnyard Critters and indulges his 8-bit NES enthusiasm as half of Wizardzz. This weekend, though, they aim merely to worsen your tinnitus.
