Gu Guai Xing Qiu

Gu Guai Xing Qiu is a french thrashy-powerviolency band. Without guitar. Yes. Just bass, drums and vocals on this one. Quite talented, to tell you the truth. They're very experimental, too. There's not a band I can think of quite like them. Think part Man is the Bastard, part Boredoms, and part Mr. Bungle. But remember: no guitar.

Try to wrap your mind around some of the shit they warp out. One of the best tracks on here is "Fly My Fly," which actually reminds me of Fantomas. You may disagree though. There is so many good songs on here, and none of them really get boring if you're into distorted bass and thrashy/sludge style riffs.

I just wish I had a bigger picture of the album. Oh, one more thing. Since the tracks are mostly in French, they were supposed to have accents and shit over them. This shouldn't matter unless you're a total anal retentive fuck.

David Carradine- 2007 3" Demo

Here's something for you. A Demo. All recorded live at various times. Only two tracks have bass. Only one song has OK quality. The last three tracks don't count. Only two people care.

David Carradine is my band.

This is pretty much impossible to get, there's only four copies left out of thirty-eight made. They were done on 3" CD-R discs, and the sleeves were Xeroxed. Old School. It was released on August 23rd at our first show as the first Buddha Khan Records release.

So...about the music. We try to pull off this powerviolence thing, but at most get to a hardcore punk stance. Get it if you like anything lo-fi, and generally don't care about how much everything syncs up.

Son of bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh! 7" Compilation

One of the Great Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh! compilations on the now sadly defunct Slap-A-Ham Records label. This is the second, and no. I don't have the first one. And I have the third, but the track listing is all messed up...So I gotta try to get that fixed...

IF ANYONE CAN HOOK ME UP WITH A GOOD COPY, EITHER THE Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh! CD WITH ALL THREE COMPILATIONS OR THE ORIGINAL 7"s, CHRIST...LET ME KNOW! I'LL PAY REASONABLE MONEY FOR THEM.'ve never heard of these (in)famous comps? Well, what a treat. The whole idea is to cram on as many bands as possible in the entire 14 minutes or so that are on a 7" vinyl record. There's Capitalist Casualties, Cripple Bastards, Macabre, Sockeye, Man is the Bastard, Crossed Out, Phobia, The Melvins, Jump Back Jesus, and a shitload more that I've never heard of. Who cares, with 52 bands doing 69 songs. Fuck Short Songs for Short People. This is the REAL short shit. I'm tired, so I'm not gonna post the track list, which I will later on. I'll change this later when I have more time to kill.

THEM- Never Was A Pacifist DEMO

THEM is a crusty punk band from Connecticut, around where I live. THEM rocks. This is their first release, a good lil' demo of crust. There's no way to get this anywhere, since it's completely out of print, and they weren't exactly putting out a lot of these in the first place. No idea. I went to school with a few of the original members on here. None of them are in the band anymore, however. Oh well.

I remember someone telling me how drunk they were when they recorded this. Hearing it, you wouldn't guess, it's extremely well recorded for a demo of this nature. They're not as tight as they are on the later two releases, but who is on the first demo? Most aren't on the second, either. Or the third....

I love THEM, since they're also one of the only bands that don't completely suck. (I've said that on the previous local post, regarding Marx Revolution. I'll probably say that about most bands from my area that I post on here.) I saw their first show, I think it was at the Italian Club in Groton. They covered "Police Bastard" by Doom.

Romantic Gorilla

More Engrish Fun from this Japanese powerviolence band. They have some of the weirdest lyrics, like in the song "Hanage" (han-a-gay) which is Japanese for "nose hair." 'Nuff said. There's a song about Mario (Super Mario), a song about the singer (Gori), and a song about Kitten Revenge (Kitty Revenge).

There's 19 tracks, and a very pointless bonus track. This is a great example of Japanese powerviolence/thrash bands, of which the majority kick ass. Good bands to check out are Mind of Asian (I've posted 2 of their albums), Fuck on the Beach, Slight Slappers, Slam Chop, Crow Dragon Tea, Charm, and Dudman. I'd like to post some Slam Chop, but I only have some tracks from a compilation.

Here's the Track List:

1. Kitty Revenge
2. Ecology
3. Crisis
4. Touch and Die
5. Time Up
6. Over
7. Too Much Beer
8. Hanage
9. Fear
10. What's Going On?
11. Flush Back
12. Super Mario
13. Gori
14. Try My Chance
15. What Can I Do?
16. The Rush Hour
17. Make A Effort
