You’re about to fall ears over heart... Impressed by the Sacramento residents’ previous work? Then you’re about to fall ears over heart for Trash Talk’s latest. ‘Eyes & Nines’ is a 10-track masterpiece which carves out supremacy over their back catalogue. Moving confidently on from Steve Albini’s genius touch on 08’s eponymous album, they’ve eased into the production lab of The Bronx guitarist Joby J Ford.

Trash Talk are brutal. Fucked Up frontman Damian Abraham once told me that Trash Talk has "the most violent pits I've ever seen", then told me a story about watching two 14-year-old girls punching each other in the face while the Sacramento hardcore band was playing. Frontman Lee Spielman manages to project an air of livewire danger and omnidirectional contempt even between songs, something rare even to hardcore frontmen.

That record featured a succession of short and fast numbers, and has influenced innumerable musicians with short attention spans and predilections for heavily amplified guitar riffs ever since.
