Portland's VIVID SEKT passed through the Bay Area again last week, and they were stellar once again. Dark and dreary early 80s UK punk worship with a frontman who almost gets the pitch right - but it's the 'almost' that makes this shit so good. "Captive" will be stuck in your head for days. Not ones to travel alone, VS brought their pals BOG PEOPLE along for the ride, and after drilling their demo into my brain repeatedly I knew it was going to be good. BOG PEOPLE share one member with VIVID SEKT, and share a drummer with the mighty NERVESKADE (yeah, Portland has a few good bands), but their attack is something entirely different from either. Noisy and chaotic UK82 styled shits to be sure, but there is something off kilter about BOG PEOPLE that make them stand out, and the guitar sounds like they rescued the tracks from a dumpster (that's a good thing). Two songs from each, I recommend getting amongst this shit.
