Weekend Nachos/Like Rats – Jim Wendler

Weekend Nachos/Like Rats

By now, just about everyone into extreme music knows the band with odd moniker: Weekend Nachos. From the Chicago area, Weekend Nachos is a blend of power-violence, hardcore and grindcore.  WN has riffs for days and as one would guess, they never over stay their welcome. One million times better than what is passed off as "hardcore" these days, with the bark of power violence, Weekend Nachos is perfect for any holiday gathering, if your family is the Manson family (yes, a shameless Ellroy reference.)  Nachos is angry music. It is vile.  So don't let the name fool you. Weekend Nachos has four proper releases, Worthless, Unforgivable, Bleed (EP), and Still.  The Bleed EP is two songs of extreme sludge/doom that can be compared a bit to Bongripper.  Obviously, Bleed is where I hang my hat, but most would do good to start with Worthless.   And here is one of the track of the Bleed EP. Like Rats, sharing members with Weekend Nachos brings a bit more HM-2 to the stage but retain the sludge/hardcore and occasional d-beat into their music. And hell, they named their band after a Godflesh song so you know these dudes, at the very least, have huge balls.
