INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE "The Newest Youth Rebellion" [12" LP]
1999 - Hardcore/Experimental from United States
Re-issue of 1999 album on Foreign Sounds. LP limited to 400 copies.cOne of the most chaotic acts to hail from South Carolina, ever, was Charleston-based INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE's static-soaked riffage embodying hardcore, powerviolence, screamo and experimental/noise elements all at once could feasibly be compared to Pageninetynine, In/Humanity, Acme, Discordance Axis, The Locust, Man Is The Bastard, Throbbing Gristle and Rorschach, sometimes in the same minute-long track. Amidst incessant regional gigs and several tours, the band quickly amassed an impressive arsenal of recordings in their brief stint as a unit, including one 7" EP, a split 7" with Usurp Synapse, and the The Newest Youth Rebellion LP. Brutal and uncompromising, and ahead of its time, the album was recorded at the legendary Jam Room Studio by Jay Matheson and mastered by Neil Burke (Men's Recovery Project, Sinking Body, Born Against), and was issued on CD by OHEV in late 1999, just weeks before the band's demise. Crushing fucking heads with sixteen disturbing works in just over twenty-six minutes, and featuring contributions from Jay Matheson, Neil Burke and Eric Wood (Bastard Noise/Man is the Bastard), the album drew fans and journalists of all things chaotic and extreme like moths to a fire, succumbed by the numbing insanity of the band's breakneck arts. TNYR saw a posthumous vinyl release in early 2001 on Insolito Records, and has since been out-of-print. Until now.
