Powercup


DIY in the literal sense of the word, Canada's Powercup may book their own tours, screenprint their own shirts and press their own tofu etc, but they're also slavishly devoted to the cult of the power tool and 'Home Improvement's blue collar patriarch Tim Allen. The gimmick alone isn't the selling point, but 2010's brilliantly named, "Renovate At All Costs“, the Montreal trio's debut full-length, is a ferocious blast of rough hewn, lo-fi grind that tells its own story: dirty chugging powerviolence with plenty of gurgling low end Read more on Last.fm
DIY in the literal sense of the word, Canada's Powercup may book their own tours, screenprint their own shirts and press their own tofu etc, but they're also slavishly devoted to the cult of the power tool and 'Home Improvement's blue collar patriarch Tim Allen. The gimmick alone isn't the selling point, but 2010's brilliantly named, "Renovate At All Costs“, the Montreal trio's debut full-length, is a ferocious blast of rough hewn, lo-fi grind that tells its own story: dirty chugging powerviolence with plenty of gurgling low end, powered by a outside diesel generator and played on a circular saw. In late 2008 Powercup was born from the ashes of the former crust grind band S.D.F. The band had split up 2 weeks prior to a show and the guys not being flakes, decided to startup a noise grind project. After a couple of shows, the two-piece eventually went on to write some actually material.

Soon enough, Gunther Von Samuelson picked up bass duty to turn the band into a three-piece renovation mayhem power violence / grind outfit. A first full length was eventually recorded and some tracks were used on a few comps. Quickly enough, the first tour came around. For personal reasons, Von Samuelson had to drop the band and Kev joined as his successor. After the tour, Powercup was invited to do some American dates.

This proved to be a bit much for the bass player and the curse was back. The band was back to a Two-piece. Steve then proposed to join and fill in for bass for these dates, but at the last second had to drop the plans for personal reason. With these circumstances, the band decided to keep the tour going but as a two piece. To kick off 2011 the right way, Powercup went to the studio to record some even heavier grind. This material is to be used for a split 10 inch with PIZZA HI-FIVE, which is to be released by Bovine Records. Official Website: http://www.myspace.com/powercupofficial Read more on Last.fm.
