Record of the Day…Holy Sick by WAAX


I always seem to have a certain number of bands “on my radar” – bands that have caught my attention from a small sample size of music.  One of the acts I was watching this year – Brisbane’s WAAX have dropped an early Christmas present.

Their brand spanking new four-song EP – Holy Sick, is perfect for lovers of ferocious post-punk. Vocalist Maria DeVita wails and growls like a combination of John Lydon, Nina Hagen and Karen O over a sonic assault of guitars and crashing drums.

WAAX is definitely still on the radar!

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
