Sex Cult at the Buccaneer Lounge 

Last October, new-ish Memphis punks Sex Cult (which features members of the Magic Kids, Bake Sale, Noise Choir, and Vile Nation) turned heads with the release of the band's fierce debut three-song single, Errand Boy + 2, for the local Goner Records label. Now the band is back with another excellent seven-inch vinyl single, this time issued by middle Tennessee imprint Nashville's Dead. "Plain Jane" b/w "I'm a Bug" (a cover song originally recorded by the Urinals in 1979) is a ferocious two-sided punch of noisy punk rock that delivers every bit as much as the group's previous effort.

"We all have pretty different tastes in music," says vocalist Chris Shaw. "But prior to starting the band we had a clear focus on what we were trying to sound like and what we were trying to accomplish. One thing we all have in common is an interest in old punk records."

Sex Cult is currently working on a full-length for Goner due later this year. But for now, the band will unveil the new single at a record-release show this weekend. Sex Cult plays the Buccaneer Lounge Friday, January 27th, with Nashville's Feral Beat and locals True Sons of Thunder and Moving Fingers. Showtime is 10 p.m. Admission is $5. — J.D. Reager
