Negative Approach

7 p.m. Wednesday, June 6. Fubar, 3108 Locust Street.

Alongside the Necros, Detroit's Negative Approach reigned supreme over all that was Midwestern hardcore in the early '80s, helping coastal contemporaries such as Black Flag and Bad Brains to pioneer the hard-edged sound that would define the genre's formula. Thirty-second, no-frills songs espousing hatred and nihilistic rage tear through its ten song self-titled EP and subsequent full-length, both of which are now considered hardcore classics. Vocalist John Brannon's gruff delivery and intense onstage persona coupled with the aggressively fast blink-and-you-missed-it music have since gone on to influence countless punk and hardcore bands from all parts of the globe.
