    ‘San Francisco’s Rank/Xerox do the future-primitive punk thing so effortlessly well that they would’ve been a perfect addition to Subterranean’s roster some thirty years earlier, fitting snugly between Nervous Gender and Flipper. That’s not to say they sound like either of those bands, though – rather, Rank/Xerox have a visceral-yet-moody texture reminiscent of Feederz, some Rudimentary Peni attitude, and maybe even a little VSS-styled DIY laser light-show action. In all of those classic punk scenes, none of the original bands really sounded like each other anyway, its more of the anxious strumming and frantic percussion that would make them a perfect candidate for any S.F. Underground compilation. The three songs here sound fresh yet classic, and at a total playing time around five minutes, I’d be wearing out the grooves on my copy if it wasn’t for my successful MP3 search. Don’t you dare go looking for them, though – (from yellow green red)

about

The debut LP from San Francisco post-punkers RANK/XEROX. The album follows a now-out-of-print four-song 7" and a split cassette with Grass Widow. Their sound is one of post-punk tension, messy but vaguely pop in a fractured fashion, guitar scratchers and synth screamers. The LP inhabits darker, danker spaces than previous recordings; damaged dirges seep out from a confused consciousness and are stared down by obtuse ragers and disorienting excursions into the synth zone. Recorded in a Chinatown dungeon by San Francisco luminaries ERIC BAUER (aka King Riff) and TY SEGALL.
