For anyone well immersed in the thriving, yet complex web that is the underground music scene in Toronto, Kenton Smith, is somebody you would have come across at almost any musical junction: you’ve probably listened to a local tape mastered by him, or bumped shoulders with him on the floor at almost any show, or perhaps you we’re fortunate enough to have been smacked across the face with an intense surge of power and performance from his live alter-ego p0st3rb0y. Birthed into realization at the time when Ty Segall's 'Melted' was blowing up and the Buzz garage was shutting down. Jude from HSY, who also ran the Buzz garage, listened to a few demos and threw him on his first bill. That band, in that incarnation, lasted for just about a year until everyone was kicked out. What was left? A boy and his noise.
Its punk. Its hardcore. Its industrial. It’s sparse minimalism that cuts right to the core without any flourishes or frills. It’s a stark wake-up call of raw energy and guttural eruptions in the face of pleasant escapist musical meanderings. p0st3rb0y wants you to know he isn't afraid of his feelings, but maybe you should be.
