Ancient Chinese Secret - Caveat Emptor

Ancient Chinese Secret is another good Chris Dodge (of Spazz fame) project. This being the only album put out by them, and on good ol' sadly defunct Slap-A-Ham Records (Dodge's label) you'd think that you might know what the music would sound like. Don't get me wrong, it's powerviolence....sort of. Chris Dodge's wife (I think) sings on this, with some drummer from some pretty popular pv band (not sure which one). When I say "sings," though, I mean it. She sings on a powerviolence record.

There's a ton of weird shit on this, and it might not be for everyone, but check it out if you're a fan of the majority of Slap-A-Ham's catologue. It is a decent record, and one of the weirder ones. No guitar on this, but there's a few songs with some sound samples. Songs range from half a minute or so to two minutes or more.


1. Waiting For Doctor Bombay
2. A Nice Day
3. Moral Of The Story
4. Sakura
5. Hyper Liar
6. Obnoxious Fumes
7. The Overlook
8. The Basics
9. Outburst
10. Flight Or Fight
11. Quiet For The Choirmaster
12. Needle's Eye
13. The Candle Burns
14. A Passage Of Time

Ed Kemper Trio REPOST

I don't think that this band gets enough recognition. I'm posting this for the second time, because by now most of you don't want to look through all of the shit I've put up here so far, and this was one of the very first things I shared with all of you. They're an extremely overlooked band, unfortunately.

Take AC/DC's rawness, Sonic Youth's noisy-ness and some nice grooves and spastic guitar riffs and you get something close to Ed Kemper Trio. They had three or four albums, and this one, being the only one I have as of right now, is fucking killer (I'm not sure about the other albums, but I know that the song "My Pants On Fire" from the album Hack is a sick-ass song).

I found out about these guys from the music documentary "People Will Eat Anything." I think it's still available from the Crucial Balast Webstore. One of the best musical scenes I've ever seen, with almost every band just kicking ass.


1. Killed for This
2. Spells Devil Backwards
3. What's New, No. 2?
4. Scatter
5. Even Burns Underwater
6. And Here's Why
7. A Blow To the Head
8. Pain in Sound Experiment
9. Why Death Works
10. My Least Favorite Part
11. Liquid Flesh
12. Hard and Black
13. Bleeding Strategy
14. How to Escape from Killer Bees
15. Agitate to the Top
16. Little Pink Pencil
17. The Catastrophe Event

Jazzus/Chuck Norris Split 7"

A sweet Brazilian slab of (wax?) that fuckin' rips. Chuck Norris is more or less the Brazilian Charles Bronson, and they are insane. Great powerviolence from these guys. Other than that, I have almost no info on these guys, other than they appeared on at least one compilation (the name escapes me right now) and another 7" EP. Jazzus I know even less about, but they throw a good number of tracks (Fuckin' 11!!!!) our way anyway. What good guys.

Comus - First Utterance

Yeah, yeah, yeah. For all you folk fans. Strange fuckin' band, it's true. Some really trippy progressive-folk style stuff. You could call it acid folk if you wanted. They only existed for a short while in the early 70s, and only produced 2 albums, this and 1974's To Keep From Crying.

Pay attention to the lyrics, if you can. All of them deal with some really screwed up topics, like murder, mental know, the basics.


1. Diana
2. The Herald
3. Drip Drip
4. Song To Comus
5. The Bite
6. Bitten
7. the Prisoner

Diedinhissuit/The Danglers Split 7"

Diedinhissuit is a two-man hardcore band, and they are crazy. They offer up two different tracks similar to Fire Horse Monarch and Gasp, but without samples or keyboards.

The Danglers are a great three person instrumental "jazz-core" band, with nice electric violin laid over drums and bass. They offer up one three-part song that I've split up into different tracks. Fans of Zappa's more simple jazz-style works might like this band a lot. This shit is highly recommended, yo!



1. You Can't Take It With You
2. When Mold Becomes A Mask


3. The Suite A: Short Attention Span Theater
4. The Suite B: Intermission Music
5. The Suite C: Mantra
