Free music artist Brendan Hooker O’Connell, the man behind Clip & Carbine, launches his mashcore/jungle side project: Emo Headache.
Started after the success of his recent “Turn or Burn LP” experimental B-Side which mixed rock/pop and gabbermashup, E. Headache turns shitmat syle gabber/mashcore into speed infused DIY punk remixes, pushing the limits of breakbeat music once again. “Ma Terror”, a track off of his premier “Punk Propaganda LP” rips through the temple of space with the abandon of a squatter bum and the intensity of a nuclear meltdown, sampling Troma Films catch all “let’s go make some art!” as a so-called “hook”.
Other tracks include “Girl Party”, a ragga jungle amen mashup with emo vocals rather than patois toasting, takes the classic oldschool jungle amen mashup and pushing it beyond conventions; and “Sub Gutter Gabba”, sampling classic punk indie film “Suburbia”.
E. Headache touches on Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop”, Stephen Kings’ “The Pet Semetary”, The Adicts’ “Calling Calling”, and even thrashes on a guitar for the opening track of “Punk Propaganda LP” called “A Sociopath Song” which samples House of 1,ooo corpses.
Think breakcore from a producer honed in the old-school production chops of ragga jungle, as Clip & Carbine have been producing for 10 years.
All material under E. Headache’s bandcamp page is %100 free to download in high fidelity format.
