The gold-plated narrative of the American dream loses its shine every time the post-punk growl of Protomartyr booms again.
Police violence, patriarchy, violent incursions, white supremacy: Joe Casey, Greg Ahee, Alex Leonard and Scott Davidson have been highlighting Yankee disgrace for twelve years with their ravaged music.
If in their studio form they grab you by the lapels to give you a good reality slap, when they get on stage they give the full Protomartyr experience fronted by Casey's extraordinary charisma.
The perfect reflection of their native Detroit, heir of This Heat, The Pop Group and Subway Sect and, at the same time, the driving force behind Dry Cleaning, Viagra Boys and Jehnny Beth.
Albums like "Ultimate Success Today" and "Under Color of Official Right" act as an intergenerational junction for a certain kind of dark and edgy rock that is always necessary.
Somewhere between a past that is hard to be proud of and a future that often looks like an abyss, Protomartyr continue to build their own story after five albums.
