Having absolutely no resemblance to its poignant cinematic namesake, 400 Blows has been retching up coarse, corrosive noise-rock for almost 15 years. Now that guitarist Scott Martin is a member of the meaty Big Business, 400 Blows is cranking up the racket again. That includes a new album called Sickness And Health. Set for release August 23 on ORG Music, the disc slices itself open with eleven cuts of jerky, disjointed, dick-withering grotesquery. And The A.V. Club is charitably premiering one of those songs, “The Rescue Party,” below. If you like what you hear, feel free to preorder your very own copy of Sickness And Health here.
