bracket.retards.bracket - Kicking Against the Micks

I know too many bands that have a completely zonked out sound. This band from Dublin, Ireland are one of my newfound favorites. I only have this single 7" EP from them, but am looking for anything else I can lay my hands on. They mix weird industrial punk rhythms and fuzzed guitars, spacy electronics, all reminding me of early Butthole Surfers crossed with L7 (go figure). I only know one of the song names (there isn't any track list anywhere). This was released in a run of only 300 copies. Definitely worth your time.


1. Song 1
2. Michael Caine
3. Song 3
4. Song 4


  1. I'll see if I can dig something else out, but this was the best thing they ever did, and the only thing that ever came close to their awesome live shows.There were 2 previous eps I think but they sucked. They broke up 2 or 3 years ago. Shame.

  2. these guys were awesome. caught them a few times around dublin. regretfully never picked up any of their records..
    anybody have anything they could upload?

  3. Hey, here's pretty much everything we recorded after I joined them. Can't remember what was released and what wasn't but there was some stuff that never made it onto vinyl...
