Wake Up with the Experimental Noise Rock of WHY PATTERNS “Wretched Makeshifts”

Does anyone else notice how history seems to repeat itself, over and over again? How we seem to escape one crisis, only to be thrown headlong into another? How we’re always on the verge of mass extinction, and yet the joy and pain of existence is neverending? It’s almost as if it’s a plan; as if our leaders understand that as long as they keep us scared and hateful and chaotic, we won’t wake up to our own self-empowerment. It’s almost like they’re studying the same political capitalism playbooks and cooperating with one another to ensure unlimited profits to a limited group—and we’re just the cannon fodder.

I don’t know why but Why Patterns‘ new video for “Wretched Makeshifts” feels like a wake-up call. It’s a dissonant and confrontational and grating audio and visual assault that’s like Freddy Kreuger slapping a Frappucino out of your hand and taking your fingers with it. This is noise rock for people who are dropping out of a system that’s only meant to keep us all enslaved and afraid. It’s off their new album Regurgitorium that comes out as a limited run of 50 cassettes on March 18th via Human Worth — pre-order it here. If you want to watch something that makes more sense than the political theatre they’re trying to feed us as reality, then hit play on our premiere of Why Patterns’ video for “Wretched Makeshifts” below. Don’t watch this if you have photosensitive epilepsy.
