Recently, Zachary Rogers has been documenting live punk sets in Birmingham.
Laughing Sword's demo paints a bleak picture. Upon its beginning, the music’s tone is immediately stark. There’s a certain rattling quality that while being caustic, is also very catchy. The offering here is one of frustration –the compositions are classic punk that have been smeared with a dreadful muck. If you need a soundtrack for stomping around on a bad day, this demo is a fitting choice. Take solace in the fact that there are other freaks out there and they’re being dealt a shit-hand, just like you.
