Infamous early '80s hardcore band Negative Approach was not only considered one of the most pissed and scary, but featured vocalist/screamer John Brannon, the shrieking ripped-larnyx barker envied by countless punks and metalheads for years to come. For the last several years, he's (sorta) grown up and frames that notable growl around his blistering noise-punk, dirty rock'n'roll band Easy Action. Fans of Iggy's Fun House drones, MC5's crotch kicks, and Turbonegro's spastic shimmy-shakes will be grinning from ear to ear. With the Brought Low and A Bunch of Girls.
