ALL LEATHER is what one would find on the (dance) floor of a seedy gay bar… the sonic perception of the last true socially accepted prejudices. One can hear, “fuckin’ faggots”, being yelled over and over as the poor brown and white trash trio make their way to the charts among the slew of what has already been done a million times over. You know, the thievery and legitimate trash filling the mp3 landfills of yesterday. The band calls for more irony, more distortion, more annoying tones, as well as bleeps, zips, snaps, and glitchy jabs. If you take a look at the world we are living in, it only makes sense.
One would write them off as some gay band with tight trousers, but none of these cats are sucking anyone’s dicks just yet. The band members come from the alleys of San Diego and Mexicalli (the ones where The Locust, Some Girls, Maniqui Lazer, and Leg Lifters live) and have nowhere to go but up.
For those of you who missed it, this happened…
ALL LEATHER’S five-track EP, Hung Like A Horse, is capable of triggering a great gnashing of teeth, with its gritty gabber-techno thumping and Pearson’s patented two-cats-with-their-tails-tiedtogether- thrown-over-a-clothesline vocal delivery. “We wanted mean, weird and irritating to be part of what we were about to do,” Justin Pearson explains. “Apparently, we succeeded”. -Jason Pettigrew/Alternative Press
Then following the EP was a remix album, Hung Like A Donut, inviting their songs to DJ sets around the world, with contributors like Congorock, Otto Von Shirach, Nic Sarno, and His Majesty Andre. Influenced by the classic, gritty, unrelenting styles of their noise and punk roots, ALL LEATHER has dragged their current manifestations to the surface.
Now this is happening so pay close attention…
The dying face of music is presented with a follow up to this so-called musical situation, some next level shit as one might say. When I Grow Up I Wanna Fuck Like A Girl LP is a precise jump into the world of electronic music, taking queues from a realm of irrelevant genres such as noise, hardcore, cumbia, metal, reggaeton, punk, paiso-house, thrash, no wave, as well as, street smarts that will stab you in the neck if they have to. ALL LEATHER has since managed to jump in bed and impregnate comrades such as Leg Lifters, Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots, and Nick Zinner… setting the world of music up for assisted suicide. Not only does the band have their own resume that would make most critics scratch their heads, they might be too scared to even listen to what is on the turntable. This LP speaks for itself… now who wants to grow up and fuck like a girl?
