The Ford Pier Vengeance Trio: local post-punk artrock spazzpop concern puts the listener in mind of classic showtunes of a bygone age dressed up in that paramilitary-looking hexagonal mesh fabric all the superhero costumes seem to be made of, or of the condition of one engaged in the act of carrying something heavy downstairs without being able to perceive how many steps are left. They are marking their tenth anniversary with the release of a new album, Expensive Tissue, available now.
