It's a bit misleading to describe Kontaminat as a "new" band, since if you assembled these guys' collective "ex-member of" list you'd get the history of Chicago punk for the last 10+ years.
The sound on these videos ain't very good (whattaya expect? It's camcorder footage of a basement punk show), but I'm diggin' what I'm hearin'-the first segment reminds me of the d-beat wallof ound perfected by Framtid, while the second segment is a bit closer to these doods' previous projects (although that may have something to do with where the two tapers were standing-I'm a punk, I dunno shit about acoustics). You be the judge.
Reliable sources inform me that they're working on a demo, so stay tuned. Check out their website for upcoming shows, flyers, etc. Dd I mention that it's none than Mike Thrashberg on vox? Oh. Yeah.
