Crabe is a raw, lo fi guitar/drum duo that have little in common with the pile of other duo based rockers consisting of Williamsburg hipsters, nerdy punks and color coordinated bluesmen.
This pair from Valleyfield, Quebec leaves the predictable toe tappers and chooses to take the expressway directly to your skull. They deliver the young, loud and snotty punk rock that will instantly bring vintage Electric Eels and Crime to mind alongside the insanity of Fantomas, John Zorn's Naked City and the Melvins.
Their real signature however, is wrapping up the whole juggernaut in glorious noise, sonic vertigo, stop on a dime time signatures and squealing glee that will blindside and pummel.
While most math rockers have seemed to exhaust their abacus, Crabe brings a method to their madness and a sense of control to their chaos that makes their dizzying time changes and dynamics climb and descend with ease and guarantee to shake you out of your skin.
Despite all of the song titles being written in French, the majority of the band's lyrics are actually in English.
