As a part of KEXP's Punk Month and leading up to Sonic Reducer's 15th Anniversary Live Show and Broadcast with Mudhoney, Control Test, and Dark Smith on May 4, KEXP's Dr. West is spotlighting punk bands for Song of the Day throughout the entire week.
Outtacontroller are Halifax’s favorite punk band and they’ll likely be yours too. They’ve been specializing in well-crafted frantic and fuzzy power-punk since 2011 and only continue to get better. Our Song of the Day is an alternate version of the gritty and blazing track “Trash On,” originally released in 2012 as the B-side of a 7” with the track “Colt Summer.”
The alternate version was made for FDH Records’ massive six LP tribute to Peter Eichhorn, founder of Germany’s P. Trash records. Eichhorn passed away last year after a car accident and all proceeds from the compilation will go to his family. “Trash On (Alternate Version)” kicks off the 104-track compilation which features contributions from bands like The Spits, Mean Jeans, Jay Reatard, and many many more.
Below, watch the official video for Outtacontroller’s latest single “Glassy Eyes” featuring Canadian comedic musician B.A. Johnston.
