Sure, it’s a little irregular for a mid-90s drums-and-bass-only noise-rock duo from Olympia (via Fargo) to reunite after 17 years . . . sure it is. But GodheadSilo did it all the same with little more than a how do ya do. After releasing a trio of LPs between ’94 and ’97, one for Kill Rock Stars and a pair for Sub Pop, drummer Dan Haugh suffered a severe arm injury that essentially forced the band into a hiatus and later an assumed dissolution. He and Mike Kunka returned in 2015 to honor the tenth anniversary of the shuttering of punk and noise-rock bastion Ralph’s Corner in Fargo-Moorhead, a club that helped nurture and build up the small but fervent North Dakota scene. Supported at that show by Hammerhead—their Fargo brethren who spent the 90s releasing material via noise-rock pillar Amphetamine Reptile Records—GodheadSilo rolled out damaged and deformed material from 1996’s great Skyward in Triumph, for example. And today that record, with its subtle shoegaze undertones and plagues of distortion, sounds as crackling and all-consuming as it did during the heyday in which it first dropped. This tour is brief and only heading through eight cities, so if you’ve got a warm and cozy spot for the frigid and blown-out noise rock of America’s Great White North, best make it count.
