Saccharine Trust + I'm a Sloth


Saccharine Trust is an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1980 by the singer Jack Brewer and the guitarist Joe Baiza.

We are not talking about the punk assimilated by the music industry like Blink 182 or Green Day, but the music of a group that in 1981 recorded on SST Records, the record company founded by Greg Ginn who had in his roster incredible bands like Hüsker Dü, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Minutemen, Screaming Trees and Black Flag.

In 1981 Saccharine Trust recorded their first EP "Paganicons" composed mainly of very short songs, a sort of middle cross betweens new wave and punk rock, it was actually something of new which lately was repeted following the same schemes by Butthole Surfers, Killdozer and Scratch Acid. Over the years the group've developed the ability to switch and evolve its approach to music and its style without being limited by its origins, coming in the mid-80s to incorporate new elements of jazz and also of avant-garde music into their songs, pushing the boundaries of punk-rock music a little more further. This blend of styles is the result of two legendary albums "Surviving You, Always" (1984) and "We Became Snakes" (1986) which are still two disruptive records and still incredibly effective in their questioning musical certainties which we have become addicted to it in our days.
Among the amazing artists who have paid duty to the Saccharine Trust we find Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, Buzz Osborne of Melvins, Sonic Youth, Tar, Dazzling Killmen, Craw etc etc... Basically this is a living legend band with no equals of the American new wave/punk rock scene.
