Knife of Sin

A 6 track noise rock ep (21m 19s) — released January 26th 2024 on Cmptr Stdnts

Big'n is a noise-rock band from Chicago, Illinois, who formed in 1990, consisting of William Akins, Brian Wnukowski, Fred Popolo and Todd Johnson. After releasing their debut self-titled single in 1990, the band went on to cut its teeth on an impressively unhinged sound. Big'n would go on to record a handful of singles and 2 LPs for legendary labels Skin Graft and Gasoline Boost, as well as a track for a 4-way vinyl tribute to AC/ DC, which also included Shellac, Brice-Glace and U.S. Maple, before disbanding in 1997. The group was reignited in 2011 by releasing a compilation of 7"s and unreleased songs as well as a new 10" record on Africantape. In 2013, Fred Popolo (Haymarket Riot) tookover bassduties.

In their subsequent work, Big'n combines a Midwestern rock sensibility with a more embittered, dark and anti-ideological edge than the rest of their influences. Lyrically, the songs of Big'n run the gamut of depression, cursed love, the burden of life, parental preachings and, of course, the inevitable deathwish. Any fans of Jesus Lizard, Slint, Tortoise or Dazzling Killmen would be advised to apply within. Their slashing, burning latest juggernaut of an EP, Knife of Sin, continues theirabrasive,bruisingsoundtoevenmoreuncompromisingends.
