May 1995

The "Sound and Media Onslaught" show at the Music Gallery, Toronto, is reviewed by Daibhid James in the May 95 issue of !*@# (Exclaim). We quote ...

Leaders of Canada's non-gothic industrial scene and, coincidentally, the owners of the coolest band name of all time, Sucking Chest Wound made good on one of their rare live appearances. Openers were Montreal's Phycus, a King Crimson-type nois e band who offered up a guitar played with a vibrator, a megaphone feeding back into a microphone, an exhibition of fire-eating and a cover of a Throbbing Gristle song. SCW followed by sticking to their keyboards and computers, which doesn't give the audi ence much to watch, so they back it up with a double-screen film and slide show. Other bands use screens, but SCW earn extra credit for actually linking up the images on screen with their musical themes. The piece called "The War On Drugs" synce d with images of cops busting down doors, cold medicine TV adverts and shots of Silken Lauman and her Benadryl (talk about topical!). Lots of bands aspire to the multi-media concept, SCW actually live up to it.
