Circle Pit the Bimah: Moshiach Oi!
Way back in the day, you know the late 90s early 00s. I was one of those guys who only liked obscure hardcore punk bands who sounded like they time traveled from pre-1986 Washington DC, New York City, or the sun bleached beaches of SoCal. Not a lot has changed for me music wise since then. Sure, I’m “respectable” I pay my taxes, vote, and even have a desk job, but one thing remains the same I have never stopped being a Hardcore Kid. So what does this have to with PunkTorah and Judaism as a whole? The answer is simple New York’s best kept secret Moshiach Oi!
This World is Nothing is the second release from the Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman chant infused hardcore band Moshiach Oi! While still keeping it musically fast and lyrically simple (face it when your circle pitting its best to keep the sing alongs simple) T.W.I.N. is slightly more polished and musically diverse than their debut Better Get Ready.
Where Better Get Ready shuckles more towards the early Washington D.C. sound This World is Nothing tips the Kippah more to the Cali sound of the early 80s. Despite being a “Punk Buffet” of style and influence T.W.I.N. has the perfect balance between fast thrash riffs, Oi, and a dash of Reggae and Ska splashed in here and there.
