[NU-PIGFUCK] New York thought it had rid itself of bands like Pop. 1280. After Giuliani cleaned up Times Square, and Brooklyn became a friendly place for Midwesterners with nice smiles and closets full of Western shirts, the city was thought to have become uninhabitable for scuzzy, degenerate noiseniks of the kind that roamed the clubs and art galleries and loft spaces back in the No Wave \'80s. Clearly, though, something from that era survived, and has crawled from the sewers to save us from the mannered niceties of Williamsburg indie rock. Imps of Perversion, Pop. 1280\'s second full-length, is an unrelenting set of twisted, ear-bleeding guitars, industrialized rhythms, meltdown synths and singer Chris Bug\'s apocalyptic howling, beset with a sense of urban dread a la a John Carpenter film. Nothing about the band is polite, but its intensity is invigorating—just like New York used to be.
