The best kept secret in music


"from Slint to Basic"

"Hello - David Pajo here, from Slint. ... Just wanted to say thanks and I'll keep an eye out for you next time you play." DP (April, 2005) - email from David Pajo

"Hardcore Hybrid"

"Maryland locals, Basic, shed stereotypes and shrug off any semblance to anyone else with their 'Command of Execution.' A punk hardcore hybrid that is only two people strong." J-Sin (November, 2004)

"New Edge"

"Your songs had a very punky edge with spunky females vocals that reminded us of bands like X. Craig Tiede (October, 2004)
- The Metro Chicago

"Two-Piece Basic Anything But"

"High-energy music behind insightful lyrics drives this bombastic ultra-punk duo." Jared DuBach (July, 2004)
- Daily Egyptian’s alt weekender, The Pulse

"Punk Power at Metal Showcase"

"Lirely’s drumming sounds like gunfire on the beaches of Normandy, and Stone’s screaming vocals and jamming guitars make the duo sound much bigger than they are." Codell Rodriguez (June, 2004)
- Southern Illinoisan’s alt weekender, The Flipside

"Like Whoa"

"Basic blew me away. When [your flier] said Bad Brains eats Hendrix we were like whoa! We love Bad Brains so you got points just for that. But when you played it was fucking awesome." Randy, guitarist in The Invincible Speedholes (June, 2004)
