Are You a Good Cop, Hotshot?

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Boddicker, a nasty little black’n’roll band from Indianapolis, IN. Their most recent release, Crime Upheaval, came out last month, and we present it here for your streaming pleasure.

Boddicker christened themselves after the gun-toting, cop-killing antagonist from Robocop, and let me tell you, it’s a suiting moniker. Over the course of this short trip through the seedy underbelly of Crime Upheaval, you’ll be bludgeoned by a relentless barrage of battering D-beats, fuzz-drenched distortion, and violent, vitriolic, vocals. Suitably, it’s kind of the audio equivalent of Officer Murphy getting lit up at the beginning of Robocop. Is the name starting to make sense now?

For all the furious riffing and gratuitous grinding the Indiana quartet churn out, though, I’m partial to the tracks where the band slows their amphetamine-fueled fury down a beat or two and hammers out the really sinister body-blows. Check out “Halo of Bullets,” “Vigilante” and “The Isolationist” if you want your face pummeled. Mercifully, none of the songs on the album run over the three minute mark, so you can catch a breath between short cuts to get your heart-rate down.

If you aren’t a poser, you can stream Crime Upheaval, as well as a number of splits with Late August, Nuclear Hellfrost, Paucities, Misanthropic Noise, and Parasitic Twins on their Bandcamp page. Otherwise, we suggest you leave the convenience store.

  • That first riff just crushed what’s left of my soul.

    • Randall Thor

      Death, this band obeys the riff.

      • Death

        How did you know that I would be here?

        • Randall Thor

          Saidar

          • Death

            You cheeky fucker.

    • Howard Dean

      That is a serious riff, indeed. Nice find, Dubya!

      • W.

        These dudes actually contacted us!

        • Howard Dean

          Nice! That’s frigging awesome!

          • W.

            We’ve gotten some emails from great bands. And a few not great bands.

          • Howard Dean

            So is metal. Weed out the bad and give the good any push upwards that we can. I just think it’s awesome that bands are reaching out the the Toilet.

          • Death

            Who were the “not great bands?”

          • Scrimm

            I can’t wait till were done recording our album so you all can tell me how bad we suck.

          • Elite Extremophile

            At least you’re not being like haxl and only posting the bad ones in a pathetic attempt to feel tr00. And hot damn this shit is good.

          • W.

            That;s not really our bag. The only things I want to slam are bands that Steve and Bojangles like.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Which may be why we are here and not there.

          • Death

            Wy do you want to slam Bojangles’ bands?

          • W.

            Yah, I noticed Paris was gone.

          • Death

            Maybe Axl kidnapped her,

          • I got an email from Paris. (S)he is super busy right now and doesn’t have time for us BUT he hasn’t forgotten and will return when he can.

          • speaking of Steve, where the heck has he been???

          • Death

            Who is steve?

          • Steve Smithwick

          • Death

            Paris hasn’t been here for a while either.

          • W.

            He’s been around. I think he’s mostly lurking since we don’t talk much about Sumeriancore 😉

          • Howard Dean

            That is an adorable kitty.

          • Elite Extremophile

            meow

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Cah I pet you!? Would you purr for me? Come on purr for ol’ uncle bear. Purr!

          • Elite Extremophile

            purrrrrrrrrrrrr

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Yep, I like you better than Mr.Bojangles alright

          • Death

            Does anyone actually like Bojangles?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            KJM?

          • Death

            Does he?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Well he at least serves faithfully. Close enough?

          • Xan

            I feigned loyalty to him until he discovered that I disliked The Acacia Strain. I then revealed my true loyalties to CROM.

          • Death

            We need to start a war against Bojangles!

          • Xan

            I’ll get the vacuum cleaner.

          • Death

            I’ll get the plastic bag. I’ll suffocate that fucker!

          • Death

            It seems that Bojangles will have competition. I already like you better.

          • Elite Extremophile

            I eagerly await his death threat.

          • Death

            He’s all talk, no walk. That’s why he’s so fat.

          • Elite Extremophile

            That’s why I’m so eager.

          • Death

            You would beat him up, I guarantee. Shrek him hard.

          • Elite Extremophile

            No need, I’ll just roll him over and crinkle a plastic bag.

          • Death

            Maybe put the plastic bag over his head so he suffocates?

          • Elite Extremophile

            No. He must survive to tell the tale to others.

          • Death

            There are no others. There are two sides. Bojangles and everyone else.

          • Elite Extremophile

            Plus killing is against my kitty code of honor. It’s much more fun to see the terror in their eyes as you back away from them.

          • Death

            You weaken him and I’ll kill him?

          • Elite Extremophile

            I dunno, I like having a rival. When the time comes, you’ll know, my friend. You’ll know.

          • Death

            Isn’t it a boring rivalry if you are better than him in every single way?

          • Elite Extremophile

            Fuck no that’s what I look for in a rival.

          • if i was one of those bad bands, i’d be happy to have MS get me the exposure.

          • W.

            Fair enough

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Thoroughly enjoyed this album ┼ ┼ ┼

  • W.
    • Death

      By the way, I found this alarming picture of you.

      • W.

        That’s racist.

        • Death

          Don’t throw that word at me. People gonna be mad at me! I’m already past that life dude!

  • Tyree

    Time to get fucking mean! My coworkers will have no idea what hit them.

    • W.

      You should get an actual Animal puppet and rage with it.

      • Tyree

        The cops are on the way already, I had no time to get one. Look for me on the news everyone.

  • Randall Thor

    This is what I paused to listen to this http://youtu.be/t4E1JYP5Tgc

  • Death

    I like it. I came. This makes me feel euphoric.

    • IronLawnmower

      Is it by any phony gods blessing?

      • Death

        No. Phony gods don’t bring euphoria.(I’m actually an agnostic atheist, but I find the euphoria atheist and extremist atheist to be idiots. Saying that they know that god doesn’t exist is like saying that they know that god does exist.)

      • W.

        No, he’s enlightened by his own intelligence.

        • IronLawnmower

          He should be a professional quote maker.

          • Death

            But he’s only a teenager.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          I think i know what you mean, the bittersweet memories of missed opportunities.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            death, my constant companion on the battlefield has now bested me, the time for war is imminent. Could sorcery be afoot ?

          • Death

            Conan, this is nothing personal. Even though I’m ahead of you in comments, I still admire you.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            no, i mean no disrespect, for a warrior death can strike at any moment. A constant companion.

          • Death
          • at the top of Disquss comments, it says “47 Comments” and “Toilet Ov Hell”… click the latter.

            Thank you Kevin.

  • Anthrallica

    I’m going to start a Boddicker cover band and name it Red Foreman

    • W.

      Will you out your foot up people’s asses?

      • Death

        I would love to do it to you. I wouldn’t complain if you’d return the favour 😉

        • W.

          That’s racist.

          • Death

        • Anthrallica

          Ok, but you gotta be Bob Pinciotti. Shut the hell up Bob!

      • Anthrallica

        Of course! Dumbass.

  • ok. i don’t know what “D-beats” are.

    plus, i loved the Robocop remake. come at me bro?

    • Kevin Nash and Friends

      I hated the Robocop remake more than the Total Recall remake and the Total Recall remake was absolute garbage.

      • The Total Recall remake would have been a killer movie if they just called it “Deus Ex” instead.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          You have to give them props for including someone as brilliant as Bill Nighy for a role of two seconds though

        • Kevin Nash and Friends

          That would have besmirched the name of Deus Ex though!

          • that reminds me, i should dust off Human Revolution! never got very far

          • W.

            I never finished it for some reason, but it was a solid game.

        • Count_Breznak

          It is absolutely impossible to remake Schwarzenegger movies. They either contain no Schwarzenegger, making them inferior by definition, or that feeble husk of a Schwarzenegger is in it, turning a cheesy action movie into a drama, or worse..

          • I can’t wait for the inevitable Terminator reboot starring Seth Rogan.

          • Howard Dean

            The sales of short-sleeved plaid button downs will go through the roof!

          • W.

            I just threw up in my mouth.

      • would you mind sharing why you hated RoboCop (2014)? just friendly discussion…

        • Kevin Nash and Friends

          Well, I hated it because not only did the PG13 rating really ruin what the movie could have been had it been R rated but the characters were dull and I hated the plot. It was not a good movie in any sense of the word.

          • i will share with you why i liked it (quite a bit):
            it still had some of the satirical qualities of the original; just not the same subject matter. it tackled some of the ideas of the drones, what with the U.S. policing other countries. it tackled modern “journalism” like CNN and FOX NEWS with Samuel Jackson’s character. it had some dark comedic elements with Michael Keaton’s and Jar Baruchel’s characters. it had OMAR from THE WIRE!!! there was GREAT action and CGI. but here’s what i liked most about the film: it was actually about the ramifications of a man (father) who became half man/half machine, and the implications it had on his family, his psyche, the corporation which “made” him, etc. plus it did a great job showcasing his abilities, how he was able to take on an entire army. in the original, he moved very stiffly — and i get that it wasn’t necessarily an action film; but i am an action fan — so what made him so efficient?
            they’re just such different films, you know? it’s almost unfair to call it a remake. reboot, yes.

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            Am I the only person who has never watched The Wire? I have never watched it, not once.

          • queue up the first episode. you’ll have season one down in a week.

          • i don’t believe so. but the episodes are attainable. if you need assistance, hit me up on FB!

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            No worries. Even though I have no money to buy it I will just go get it off the Pirate Bay or something.

          • hehehe, i have no idea what you’re talking about

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            I don’t know what that is either. Someone I know referred it to me saying it was good for getting things for free.

    • D-Beat is a drum beat that some gross crusty kids decided to create an entire genre from. Tyree can teach you allllll about it!

        • Death

          Did you go watch the last live show?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Unfortunately no. I am still weeping for my fate

            Edit: propably why I’m watching the rest so much

          • Death

            I loved every second of it. It made me so moist.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Can Death go moist? Doesn’t being dead complicate that a lot?

          • Death

            Death can do whatever he wants to! I go moist quite often.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Does it apply to all things dead or only Death

          • Death

            Only Death, and if I allow it, to dead things. You have to have my permission for it.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Note to self: die -> do whatever you want to

          • Death

            I would give you the ability to become moist after you die. You seem like a nice guy (totally not being biased).

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Why thank you. It is not common anymore for me to hear such a nicety

          • Death

            Well you are nice (totally not beign biased because of you beign a fellow finn).

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            No finn was ever biased, Am I wrong?(No Walter you’re just an asshole)

          • Death

            Well, I’m totally mot beign biased…

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            A sincerely warm feeling towards you then

          • Death

            Yes… Here’s Mörkö for you.

            Why does that remind me of Grimace from McDonald’s? I mean the purple makes him look exactly like Grimace but with a nose.

          • Death

            Except that Grimace doesn’t appear in a nice children’s show and start making scary sounds while scary music plays and give you traumas fort the rest of your life and force you to go to therapy because of your crippling phobias.

    I remember when Clarence and I would play handball in the parks of ol Detroit whenever I would visit there. The handball were actual hands that we severed off homeless people though. They would always just splatter on the walls and never bounce back. But I digress.

    That Clarence is a fun guy.

  • Not Vincent Bennett

    I’m devastated. My ex girlfriend who I dated for two years in high school died of a heroin overdose today. She was 27. When I dated her she had blonde hair with black streaks in it which she later dyed red. She wasn’t the most attractive person but I did have feelings for her. We had a falling out though right before graduation. The feelings I had for her had dissipated and we got into an argument about something, I think it was because I couldn’t afford to buy the two of us tickets to see Fall Out Boy. We broke up and she tried to drag my name through the mud. I got really pissed about this, so I went and successfully dragged her name through the mud. Apparently according to one of my friends that really destroyed her and she turned to drugs. This is going to haunt me for the rest of my life. What I did caused a person to die of a heroin overdose. I’m going to have to live with this for the rest of my life. I’m going to sleep, I don’t want to think about this anymore.
