Nega†ive S†andards is, in the words of fan/friend/fellow Wes music legend Ben Seretan, "a sweet punk/grind band making brutal music in Oakland." Featuring Max Lavine and Will Blomquist, Nega†ive S†andards have been touring up and down the west coast playing shows as

much as they can, and also run a cassette label called Gay Scientist Recordings. Sadly, they have no embedded audio, but you can buy their recordings from Five Ten Tapes.
