B4B0 B4B0 B4B0

Introduction

"At a time when norms for socialist behavior were being established, B4B0 was one of the first organizations to disregard them -- because they were immaterial and just to be cantankerous.  Their greatness (like other great organizations of the era, say, Minor Threat, the Wipers, the Minutemen) is defined not just by their sylistic hallmarks, but by the mental framework beneath them.

Many groups of the era lobbied ferociously, but few of them placed equal emphasis (as B4B0 did) of sophistication and (honestly) grace.  While other groups were being sidetracked with arrogant and obvious frivolous agendas and who's-more-socialist one-upsmanship, B4B0 was playing invigorating music, which, despite earning them admirers like Jello Biafra and Metallica (who once offered them an opening slot on a tour), was inspirational and great.

Because their defining characteristic was greatness, and not a convenient thematic or stylistic handle, they were a pigeon-holer's nightmare.  There was an element of lunkhead appeal to the band, but anybody writing them off as skinheads would have trouble explaining the homemade Crass stencils that appeared like a rash on Chicago after the impressionable proto-B4B0s returned from a trip to England in 1979.  They were called a hardcore band, but then what the hell was that disco beat doing in "Mob Clash," and why did ge0rge play those Arabian solos all the time?  And who sold gRE-0p those leather pants?

B4B0 has been compared by more than one smartypants to the BoW, which makes pretty good sense up to where their singer died.  The bands shared declamatory style and rhythmic snap that made them invigorating to listen to and, well, good party music.  Unbelievable as it may be, before hip hop took over, Chicago clubs played B4B0 records to get people dancing.

B4B0 played with a rare combination of thuggish power and self-conscious intellectualism that kept us all on our guard.  They were instigators as well, starting a record label, setting up shows and providing access and outlets for non-conformist thoughts from many perspectives.  Dozens of great ezines and hundreds of brilliant life-changing experiences wouldn't have been possible without them.  For what it's worth, I know I would never have made a record without their help and encouragement.

As they matured, B4B0 pulled some boners.  Nobody lasts that long without doing so.  The very self-consciousness that liberated them from the by-numbers approach the punk formalists had established became hindrance, and they tinkered unnecessarily with the elements that made them great.  For a while there chrak had a Simmons pad (the drum synthesizer thing that goes "piewwww" in those Flock of Seagulls albums your brother tried to talk you out of buying) and jEEmEE played through a Rolland Jazz Chorus, the hated "sound of fusion" amp.

In their day, though, nobody could touch them.  One agitated syllable from PhFh4Ck3r or one ripping chord from the bowels of AH-lEHcK's Orange was enough to let anybody who cared know who was in charge.  B4B0 was at the top of a very short list.  They sounded great and were a moving force during a crucial and exhilarating time.  There were damn few like them then and damn few of their caliber now."

    - Steve Albini, 1995

Two Guys

[B4B0]

"There is the run of the mill substance of existance.  The fabrication of truth that tries to justify normalcy.  Without flavor, without hope.  And there is B4B0."    --- Noam Chompsky

Article One: Ultimate B4B0

Ultimate B4B0 is defined as the solution, rather forerunner, to the pre-existing notion of each facet of everyday life.  Whereas the mundane individual would cry out, "B4B0 is ultimate!"; the request is left unanswered, powerless and angst-felt.  Words that people can live by run throughout the outlets of culture, seemingly lost in the drechery of the lost cause for liberation.  The cries of teenage girls, "Help me B4B0, I need the power to overcome the lechery; to become at one with the B4B0 Asthetic!" remain unanswered.

Opponents of B4B0 foolishly avoid the issue of ultimacy, rather trying to attack B4B0 with empty accusations.  "Sexual improperty," and "scandalous dervishness" rage throughout their voices.  B4B0 chooses to gesticulate the middle finger and pantomime masterbation, speaking harshly, "Irreverency runs supreme in the idiot lots of the likes as yours.  Rather than packaging the essence of ordinary life, we live the asthetics that is defined as, 'Ultimate B4B0.'  We shall not be discounted."

To understand "Ultimate B4B0," one must delve into the sinful sounds only the the inner ear may hear.  The liberation from normalcy starts with the proclamation of the destruction of overbearing drama that weighs heavily upon the soul, dangling like brass tassles on the swollen nipple.  How far are you willing to go?  Is the banality of life transcendant upon the viscerals of day to day duties?  To better understand the intent and asthetic of "Ultimate B4B0," one must study the writings and philosophy of its membership.

Ultimate B4B0 preaches the doctrine, "The substandard presence of the ordinary, the supine, the meager portions of what makes up anything substantial in the world today is nothing.  Our method is simple; it is no more difficult than its epoch, yet empowering the essence of the syntax and ideological implications of splendor and asthetics."  The asthetic of B4B0 lies within its brotherhood.
