Before I saw Atari Teenage Riot at the Key Club, the only other time I had heard the name was when Dim Mak Records announced they would be signing them.  I looked these guys up a few days before the show and all I heard was loud rock and roll.  Apparently they were a pretty popular German hardcore band back in the 1990s, but I guess I wasn’t cool enough back then to know about them.

Atari Teenage Riot @ The Key Club Video Concert Review

As Lorn pointed out in the video, I think it’s obvious these guys and this kind of music is going to get a lot more popular in coming months.  They appeal to that deep down desire to go wild and fucking crazy + they combine the aspects of electronic music, yelling and screaming, and a cool indie label backing them up.  I think if you saw these guys when you were 15 or 16 years old you might blow your load your or something.

ATR @ Key Club

The thing I really dig about ATR is the incorporation of electronic, bassy beats.  The opening band All Leather also had an electro influence, but they seemed a little bit more hardcore with two live drummers going bonkers on stage.  We had a chance to talk to JP, the band’s lead singer, and his exact remark was… “Prepare to be annoyed.”  I can’t argue with that, but sometimes things in life are so annoying you just have to fight it with some really fucking loud annoying music!

    Drum and bass beats? Don't you mean hardcore?

    Alec Empire decided to call what they do "digital hardcore"- a combination of hardcore techno and hardcore punk. Drum and bass, while it comes from the same place (early rave & jungle) , doesn't really have anything to do with hardcore techno anymore although it is at a similar BPM.

    I was at the Key Club for this show because one of my friends is a huge ATR fan from back in the day. I thought that all the different groups put on great shows but that the crowd was a pretty lame (not very friendly, or having much fun) and the sound was… not very good. I know loud is appropriate for something like this but not at expense of a good mix. There was some good moshing action.
