Unsane
Unsane
Formed - 1988 in New York.

Noise rock trio of Chris Spencer (The Cutthroats 9), Vincent Signorelli (Swans) and Dave Curran (The Cutthroats 9 & The J.J. Paradise Players Club). The original lineup consisted of Spencer, Pete Shore and drummer Charlie Ondras, who passed away from a drug overdose in 1992.

The video for the song "Scrape" (from their 1995 album Scattered, Smothered & Covered) received a lot of airplay on MTV and became their biggest hit to date.

Note - in order to avoid confusion with the heavy metal band of the same name, they often use the suffix "NYC".
Plaque Marks
Plaque Marks
Founded by three veterans of Philly's punk and hardcore scenes, whose current and recent bands include Creepoid, Fight Amp, and Ecstatic Vision, Plaque Marks pound out the rawest, most caustic music any of these musicians has ever made. The band is the self-proclaimed "stain on the smile of the Philadelphia music scene."
In Plaque Marks, these guys have abandoned all semblance of "finely tuned," "sun-baked," and "melodic," in favor of pure abrasion and bad living. Caveman drumming, tooth-rattling bass, painfully distorted guitars, and buried yells are the elements at play here, and on debut EP Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship they sound like they were recorded with one lone mic, hanging from a noose in a Philly warehouse.

Plaque Marks credit Texas legends Rusted Shut and Cherubs for inspiration, as well as the early works of contemporaries Pissed Jeans – and while some of the members' other work, particularly Fight Amp, resides in this ballpark too, Plaque Marks take it to new depths. This is noise-rock in its simplest and most corrosive state, and Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship is right at home on Minneapolis label Learning Curve Records, responsible for releases by Vaz, Hammerhead, and Gay Witch Abortion.
