A hardcore band with a deceptively twee name, Brooklyn bruisers Gay for Johnny Depp release their latest, most vicious LP the night before they depart for a U.K. tour. Taking influence from the British Invasion (their guitarist is named Sid Jagger), GFJP let their imaginations run away, often at the expense of their namesake (the victim of an extreme amount of would-be anal rape). With an early EP titled Blood: The Natural Lubricant, it’s best to leave Jack Sparrow fans at home for this one. With the Netherlands and Wiretap Crash.
