Bark Bark Bark
"BARK BARK BARK IS BLOWING THE FUCK UP!" screams the big banner on the band's MySpace page. That may be overstating it, but the band—actually just Arizona's Jacob Safari plus a rotating crew of assorted friends—should be going places. Bark3's synth-y oeuvre is like a more friendly Nine Inch Nails—still distorted and fuzzy, but less freakishly aggressive. Not to say it's fluff, just more like industrial lite. But don't just take our word for it: Considering Bark3 shares a Saturday bill with the Paper Chase and the Great Tyrant, maybe Jacob and Co. are blowing the fuck up after all.
