Material Support describe themselves as “Filipina-fronted agit punk band from NYC, agitated by state repression, government corruption, and patriarchy.” So they had me from the word GO. I heard them a couple weeks ago on the all female-fronted episode of one of my favorite podcasts and blogs, Just Some Punk Songs. It was among the strongest cuts played that afternoon and I immediately went searching for it. The song starts off with what sounds like a snippet from some cheesy ass right wing news bullshit where they are likening bombs exploding in Pakistan and Afghanistan to “freedom” and just a bunch of Fox News-style propaganda set to some corny-ass music. “Terror Prone Nation” cuts in and it is a total banger with lyrics condemning the forces occupying and terrorizing folks with bombs, drones, and constant war. The band tells me Terror Prone Nation will be coming out shortly on Cassette and Vinyl. For now it’s available digitally (name your price) so definitely go support this band, the whole album is sick and so necessary.
Material Support play with The Proletariat and Atruth at El Cortez in Brooklyn on May 18th.
