  • Episode 56 - The Judex
    by Matt Attack on January 6, 2018 at 5:00 am

    The Judex was formed in Philadelphia in 2017. Their sound has been described as "The sound of Punk being invented in a 1957 Chicago Blues Club..." and they're down on the glorification of the artist. The Judex is a hive mind approach to Rock & Roll. Their songs explore the decline of community, the responsibility of the artist, gender perception, the role of the abuser, the enablement of culture, and Silent Film Actresses. https://thejudex.bandcamp.com/ Judex - "Cult of Judex" Big Wheel Stunt Show - "Draygun Raygun" Tin Vulva - "Bill (Bored)" Castle Black -"Blind Curtain" Judex - "Witchface" Judex - "Kill White Lights" Hazemaze - "Beast and Prey" Judex - "Wicked Pony Stomp" Morphine Social Club - "Chaos Lover" The Rodent Hour plays independent rock 'n' roll from Brooklyn & beyond every Monday evening at 8PM only on Radio Free Brooklyn.
