BEST MUSIC POLL
Best Category-Defying Act in Providence
Wow, Eric Baylies and his crew must have accrued quite the following over the past decade, as the New Bedford-based trio Baylies Band absolutely crushed the competition and led all category winners in votes. Baylies Band specialize in experimental collages tailor-made for the heyday of PVD noise rock. A few years back, 75orLess released Risibility and Discourse (recorded at Machines with Magnets); that disc evoked SST-era Sonic Youth (check out "Pissing On a Drowning Man"). R&D was followed with a pair of instrumental records — Fort Thunder Flashback and the three-track, 69-minute noise orgy titled Man Ray & Vague Knitting. Fans of Melvins and Swans should raise a pair of devil horns in approval. This shit is fucking crazy. Be on the lookout for the new All Clowns No Lions on 75orLess.
