    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

LOL - someone please tell me this is not real...

    ABOUT

    We have started in January of 2004 as an ordinary garage band trying to follow the steps of Kurt Cobain himself. We played for fun and never gave up on what we did. Over the years the sound have changed here and there and became heavier, more psychedelic and totally out of an ordinary going beyond any music theory. We don't play to sound good, it's more about the communication and passion itself. We believe that passion itself can be more beautiful than any masterpiece. Here we are now almost 9 years later and still very underground. Check us out here: www.reverbnation.com/undergroundmassacre

    Apparently that's after nine years of hard work, according to the bio on that page.

    Sounds like sound to me, not music. Though I think I could feel the "communication" and the "passion"...

    After what I just heard... I think they need to be further underground... like... 6 feet under ground. I'd be happier... and they'd be happier in the actual presence of Kurt :bag:

    Interesting, they sound just like when I play with my 4 year old daughter on ukelele and my 2 year old son on xylophone/plastic drums. It's almost as if they sampled us or something.

    Hi,

    It's got a good beat. You can dance to it. I'll give it an 87.



    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Dear Underground Massacre,

    I'm not going to say you suck.





































    Because that would be far too generous to describe the garbage you've managed to come up with that you refer to as "music."

    Hi,

    At least they're being true to themselves and not playing covers. :D

    (Sorry, I couldn't help myself.)

    At least they didn't sell out, and go mainstream

    You laugh... but this song gets thousands of downloads.
    Apparently the North Korean secret police have been using it quite effectively for torture and interrogation sessions. They have found that only a few hours of this can break even the most highly trained imperialist capitalist spies from the evil west. It quickly destroys the human spirit and confessions are eagerly signed leading to public execution.

    That equipment list attached to that recording is going to put the cause of respect for SX and Squier as serious instruments back 10 years.

    I think this might be what it's like to be on meth.

    They clearly don't care about many mainstream concepts. Like "tempo", for one.

    Also, the whole thing might have been slightly more tolerable if the guitard didn't monopolize the mix.

    I love when bands "reject all music theory" and then write a bunch of songs in an obvious key in 4/4 with four bar phrases.

    Citing "Fecal Matter" as an influence is as pretentious as it is crazy. Fecal Matter were Cobain's highschool band that didn't release anything. I think there might be some of their stuff on that massive 4-disk rarities release they came up with, but I'm not sure.
