WHORECOUGH “Whorecough” (self-released)

Reading Whorecough’s bio informed me that they are from Harrisburg, Virginia. However, after listening to their demo tape I’ve concluded they have a lot more in common with what’s going on in New York right now as opposed to their scenic little town in the Shenandoah Valley*. They remind me a lot of Perfect Pussy pre-Captured Tracks output; just a little less noise distortion over the vocals and a little more straight up hardcore instead. Fans of Meredith Graves will appreciate Natalie Strickland’s take-no-prisoners front woman approach. The tape is short but I loved every minute of it.
