Mx-80 sound are the band no one has heard about but everyone rips off–I’m looking at you Sonic Youth. Hailing from the culturally insular area of Indiana in the 70′s, Mx-80 sound created the blue print for the now famous No-Wave scene in new york. For a band from Indiana, one wouldn’t expect all the paranoia and dread that these guys manage to wrangle out of their guitars. Although the vocals are a little flat, often spoken, Mx-80‘s start and stop guitars coupled with the occasional skronking sax sounds just as fresh as it did thirty years ago.
