Co-founded in 1978 by Chris Cutler, London-based ReR Megacorp remains a musician-led independent label after almost 40 years. Blithely disregarding market wisdom, it continues to release titles across a wide spectrum of genres.
ReR is home to cult bands This Heat, Henry Cow, Faust, Art Bears, The Necks...
As with a pot of water left simmering above fire for too long, Anger Management - Cutthroats 9's second disc - boils over, rather explodes, with searing heat and violence. With his previous outfit Unsane, Chris Spencer (guitar/vocals) assisted in pioneering a more aggressive, less studied direction for noise rock, and for that matter, hardcore and extreme music in general. While developing the blueprint for noise-metal bands to follow, Spencer cut a remarkable, hearing damaged swath through underground music, inspiring a devoted, cult-like following around the globe for a decade. As a power trio, Unsane relied upon a hammering, power-press rhythm section, Spencer's searing six string howl, and distorted vocals that resembled nothing if not the sound of a man trapped in the New York Subway system. And as the principle songwriter, vocalist, and founder of Unsane, Spencer has dropped precisely that amount of weaponry on the table with Cutthroats 9, with plenty extra in tow. In fact, this trio of dangerous men ratchets up Unsane's intensity level, harnessing a dynamo of fear, rage, chaos, and vengeance, with each track barely escaping derailment and destroyed equipment.
