Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair - Contraception (2011)
Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair (no, that's not a typo) is a fastcore / powerviolence band from Glasgow, Scotland, UK. They play a minimal, heavy, pissed off and surprisingly, a not that fast brand of the genre(s), mostly comparable to a handful of the more humorous 625 Thrashcore bands and to a slightly lesser extent, the aussie Heist and Rupture. There's also some similarities to late 90s / early 2000s kinda modern really angry hardcore, such as Left For Dead or Haymaker and a dash of occasional experimental-ish / weird sounding vibes. Lyrically, seems that they write ironically about love and relationships. Anyway this is good stuff, I just wish it was a lot faster and spastic, because that's the only complaint here. Here's their first full-length, which was self-released and is still available from the band directly.
