JUDO NO A moshy cuatro of tradition squashers, JUDO NO steals beats from Africa and South America and tastelessly twists them into gloriously distorted decompositions, complete with illegal vocal harmonies, subliminally manipulative lyrics, unabashed brass blasts and wompy bass drops. Trashy magic weirdos? Thrashy tragic heroes? This pack of multi-instrumentalists are too fresh on the scene to say for sure. After almost a year of nastily magnetizing audiences from Santa Cruz to San Fran, JUDO NO is juiced to let loose their debut album upon the masses. If you're up for a spiritually confusing physical challenge, be one of the first to discover all that JUDO NO.
