964 PINOCCHIO sent me their stuff in October of 2017 when it was first released digitally and it was obvious that I needed to review it here. Having only a single EP out thus far, the four songs are chaotic, noisy and very experimental, drawing from a myriad of influences. The opener "Untitled Experiment Like Any Other" is a mere 50 seconds, but it plays with the listener for the first 30 seconds with spoken word vocals amidst dissonant guitars only to jump in and out of insane drums and grindcore/noise. The second song, titled "I'm Not a Scab, I am a Strikebreaker!", is 1:22 of blown out screams and crazy stop/starts built on a structure that I'm not even going to try and begin to understand. My favourte song is next, as "To Whom Are You Gonna Convince Someone You Just Used?" is a blast in the face with more screamo/emo-violence than grindcore/noise. The closer and title track "I've Been Running Round The City For 10 Minutes Straight In Order To Find You & Rip Your Fucking Face Off" is longer than the first three songs combined and at 4:10 it's a completely different beast. The vocals are spoken word and reach some singing over very chill noodling and drums, with the entire thing coming off as a rock band until about 1:40 when the screaming meets the singing and the instrumentals crash down. At 2:30 shits gets pretty goddamn awesome as the two vocalists trade throat-wrenching screams until the sudden shutdown at 2:55 when everything cuts out and a single guitar creates a somber mood, only to be dashed with a few startling and impressive explosions of emo-violence.

I think comparisons to noisy grindcore projects such as Melt Banana, Discordance Axis and current bands Secondgradeknifefight, Skram Kid Skram and Hedge Fund Trader. Check this EP out and keep your eyes open for their next release.
