When talking about noise rock, it’s easy to put focus on the frenzied sounds of the guitar and pedals. Houston’s Pain Teens proved that there’s more than one way to incite sonic chaos. Utilizing tape loops, violins, marimbas, sampling, and an array of other methods, the group created some of the most innovative and wild sounds of the era. Their contribution to the Sub Pop Singles Club, Death Row Eyes / The Smell, gives a sample of the mayhem they’d concoct in the studio.
