Nomos - Demo Tape and interview

So there's a new band in NYC that doesn't suck at all. This band is called Nomos. In fact they don't suck to the point where I might even call them good. You know, for some fucking rookies. This being said, I haven't seen them live and had the chance to heckle and throw shit at them yet so I'm still not sold. Anyways, I had a chance to talk to their drummer Chris Bowman about their first release. Here's what he said.

Jack: Yo

Chris: Hey dude

J: I'm gonna post that nomos shit up on no gods that cool?

C: That would be cool, yeah

J: Nice, wanna answer a few questions about it?


J: Word, why the fuck are you called the nomos? Is that like no homo or no more or something?

C: Nomos is greek for law- we basically thought that it sounded cool. yeah, not the no homo thing

J: Ha, nice that's cooler. Who's in the band?

C: It's me, Garrett McGrath on vox/bass and Michael Gorup on guitar

J: How do you guys know each other?

C: Garrett and I know each other through NYU, theres not alot of kids who listen to hardcore punk stuff so I think I met him at a show. And Garrett and mike are friends from high school

J: Nice, you all in NYC now?

C: Yep

J: So if you're all in school, how come all you listen to is 90's crust and 80's hardcore. You can't fuck to it and it's hard as shit to write if you're headbanging

C: Haha, um lemme see... Well its fast and has energy and makes people move
fuck boring music

J: Excellent response. What's your favorite flavor of punk rock?

C: Anything that sounds like early black flag and a couple later songs

J: What's your favorite flavor of meat?

C: Bloody

J: What's your favorite flavor of beer?

C: Steel Reserve

J: What's your favorite flavor of god?

C: N/A

J: Correct. Any last words?

C: Mosh

J: Fair nuff.

So there it is folks. That's Nomos in about 3 minutes on instant messager. Download it, listen to it, gimme your feedback. For reference, it doesn't sound shit like early Black Flag but it's still alright by me.
