I am going to be working on getting a ton of shit re-organized on this little ol' site o' mine, I'm honestly getting tired of doing it the way I have been (not to mention all those days without any new music updates...sorry). I'd much rather be into letting unknown bands get some extra exposure than just posting stuff I like. So, I'm going to declare/warn you folks right now, a lot of the music on here may disappear. I'm going to put together a giant post with links to the music, so you will still be able to access them, but the posts themselves will die. Some of the music itself will be deleted, either dead links or stuff you can get anywhere, and you don't need my shabby help to find. I've looked at some of the things I've posted since I began and I just want to shed some extra weight. I think that a true DIY attitude and good music are sadly scarce these days, a lot of the time people forming bands not to create good music but to gain bragging rights, lame girlfriends, and social acceptance in lieu of learning to play their instruments. So I say FUCK THAT. It's time....

Commence the reconstruction.

Bill Shatnerrr - You Put the Round Burger on the Sqaure Wonderbread EP

Some awesome spastic hardcore, jumping all over the place. Lots of crazy dissonant "grind and groove" riffs, plenty of off-kilter breakdowns, all the while interrupting itself every now and then amongst the chaos with a clean guitar. If you've heard their demo from awhile back last year, then you should know that the songs only suffered from the recording quality. Now you can have all that cake, and smash it too. These are TIGHT, motherfucker!!

Gorge Trio - Open Mouth, O Wisp

One of them albums that makes you hate me even more. Piano, guitar, and drums, all seemingly improv, but the inclusion of the track "Intimate Addition," probably the most intense tropical song to ever exist, suggests otherwise, leaving you to speculate on whether or not these guys are just making noise. I guess it's up to you to decide.

Third Death/[All Those Opposed]/Hulk-Out 3-Way

Well, this is a great one-sided 12" LP, three bands from Providence shredding it up. I don't know where the All those Opposed tracks went, so sorry....they were the weakest tracks of the lot, in my opinion. Third Death, as you know, RULES!! Hulk-Out, as you should know, RULES!!! All insane skate-thrash in the vain of The Poopy Butts, Scholastic Death, and any others that are for one reason or another just not coming to mind right now.

Godzik Pink - S/T 7"

Some avant-jazz stuff I've been into lately, really skronked and strange. Features Eric Kiersnowski from Totally Serious and formerly of Upsilon Acrux (that's a band that's been popping up a lot around here...Jesus, everything is fucking related). Godzik isn't together anymore, unfortunately, putting out only 4 EPs and a couple songs on a few comps. Coming together in a whirl of skewed dissonant harmony, with songs barely going over the 2:30 mark. If you're into weird jazzy-type stuff, (Flying Luttenbachers, Mouse on the Keys, 16-17, etc.) then this might be up your alley.


1. Nursery Lime
2. East Coast/West Coast Unity (A Cry For Peace)

Clan of the Cave Bear/Self Destruct Button 7"

I haven't scanned the artwork, which is unfortunate, since there are great drawings on each side. But you should be here for the music. CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR, from Cleveland, OH, do a two-man progressive grind/metal/noise thing that not too many folks could compare to. Got this when I saw them with Upsilon Acrux and Stats in Brooklyn at Death by Audio. They RULE live. SELF DESTRUCT BUTTON, also from Cleveland, do melodic, yet abstract rock. Off kilter as hell, you might want to listen to that for a few times, just to soak it in as much as possible. Also, additional info on either band would be much appreciated. They're both pretty elusive.


1. Two Chimps on a Davenport (CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR)
2. Egg Collection (SELF DESTRUCT BUTTON)
3. Key Lime Pie (Head Roast) (SELF DESTRUCT BUTTON)

Totally Serious - Live Stuff

Totally Serious is Jesse Appelhans on drums and Eric Kiersnowski on bass. They've both played in Upsilon Acrux, Jesse was also in Bad Dudes, Eric was in Godzik Pink, among many other great ones. If you dug anything by Ruins, or even that Weird Legs post a few weeks back, then give this one a go. They really don't have an album, nothing really other than live recordings and a few youtube videos. I ripped the sound off the videos I found awhile back, so here they are. Enjoy!

2 New Blogfinds

My friend in Cleveland just started up a blog of his own, calling it Emploit the Xasses. From the looks of the few posts on there already, this will range from art to suggested reading, reviews, music, and all within that narrow alternative with such a wide perspective. I guess. Check it out, show some love!

The second find is more of that, showcasing obscure (at least to me) movies, comics, music, and books for all those folks sick of the ordinary. AHHH! My Indie Cred (as they call it) is a new favorite of mine, run by numerous posters, ranging from Indie Rock and electronic music to Black Metal to Jazz, from Horror and Gore to Drama to Anime, postmodern novels, just to name a few.

I think that if you're a fan of anything a bit more out of the ordinary, then these sites might be right up your alley, holmes. Check them out feverishly, make them your homepage, your only window into the outside. Or just click a few links and see what the hubbub is about.

Tumbleweave - ♪♫♪♫♫♫♪♪♫♪

Tumbleweave are from West Palm Beach, Florida. Yes, that's really the name of this album. Don't hurt yourself. This is some great electronic music, if you ask me. Kind of like Yip-Yip, perhaps just not as gimmicky. They've also been compared to Gay Beast, Devo, even Lightning Bolt and Ruins (I guess this was based off of their live sound). Think a live 8-bit cover of a Looney Toons Sega game soundtrack, and you'll be pretty close. Give them a visit on their bandcamp page, these guys seem like legit dudes, spread the love and enjoy!

Thrash to the Puss 5-Way Split

5 crazy-good powerviolence and hardcore bands together for a free download release, mass distibuted by a good number of sick labels, such as To Live A Lie, Buried In Hell, ZX Tapes, Cul-De Sac Distro, Shitpiece, Lost Cause, Cornada, and Buddha Khan Records; yeah, mega name drop.

One track from each band, all insane and ferocious, so there's something here for everyone. Whether you're into the Straight-edge spasms of You Suck, the messed-up altered thrash from Bill Shatnerrr, The raw, corrosive heaviness of xharoldshitmanx, the pounding thrash of Unlearned, or the down-n-dirty lo-fi of Damage, you just can't say no. Besides, this is a free downloadable release, get this in your head right fucking now!!


1. xharoldshitmanx - Elitist Punx Fuck Off
2. You Suck - You'll Never Be Welcome
3. Bill Shatnerrr - The Junk of New Orleans
4. Unlearned - King Ferocious
5. Damage - Blink 182

U.S. Maple - Stuck 7"

U.S. Maple is one of the most broken bands I've ever heard. A band created for the sole purpose of deconstructing conventional rock n' roll, they definitely seemed to have accomplished exactly that. This is one of my favorite releases by them, a mere two song 7" released by the best experimental label EVER, Skin Graft Records. Fans of music like Winning, Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, and The Flying Luttenbachers take note.


A. Stuck
B. When a Man Says "Ow!"

bracket.retards.bracket - Kicking Against the Micks

I know too many bands that have a completely zonked out sound. This band from Dublin, Ireland are one of my newfound favorites. I only have this single 7" EP from them, but am looking for anything else I can lay my hands on. They mix weird industrial punk rhythms and fuzzed guitars, spacy electronics, all reminding me of early Butthole Surfers crossed with L7 (go figure). I only know one of the song names (there isn't any track list anywhere). This was released in a run of only 300 copies. Definitely worth your time.

Mother Night - Extinct Dialects

When I get requests, I gotta be honest, I get to hear some terrible terrible stuff. But it's every once in a while that I get to hear a band that has some amazing songs, and thankfully, these guys fit the latter. These songs are all instrumental, yet defying a typical progressive style by having their songs under 20 fucking minutes long. Huzzah!! On top of that, the songs are all great, with groovy catchy hooks, driving drumbeats, and a few psychedellic moments peppered throughtout. Definitely worth a listen or two, and deserves a place next to Stinking Lizavetta (actually digging these tunes more so than the SV's).

Weird Legs - Weird Life Demo

I've been gone awhile, but check out that collage...Anyway, this is a 3 song demo by a couple of my friends who call themselves Weird Legs. Drum and bass insanity, these guys are really great. They stopped playing after writing these songs, but word is that they'll be back soon with more material, so keep posted!!

Werewolves - Grind Melon EP

Upon posting the Call Me Betty EP earlier this week, I recieved an e-mail from Geoff from Werewolves, the band that Call Me Betty had done a split 7" with. He delivered a juicy little EP, with some crazy hardcore, filled with catchy, brutal vocals, (a fine example would be the track " Knuckleheadin' ") some nice thrashy grinding parts, and plenty of harsh hardcore anthems. These guys must have been insanely great live, you can actually realize the energy in the room just from the recording. Not to mention, some of the most hilarious album artwork I've seen in a long time. This is one you need to check out, definitely.

Call Me Betty - der Gini-Koeffizient EP

Total whoa band. I wish I lived in Germany, if bands like this exist everywhere. The more I look, the more bands I find that blow me away. Call Me betty is now sadly defunct, leaving behind quite a string of releases, at least they were extremely productive, like most German bands nowadays. Unfortunately I only have this and their split 7" with a band called Werewolves. I haven't looked into Werewolves much... Oh, I guess you're wondering about the music, huh? Well, they play a crazy combo of hardcore and explosive grind, like a faster and WAAAAAAY more chaotic A Fine Boat, That Coffin! without the screamo element so much.

Mondo Gecko/D9 Split LP

Two bands on one great slab o' wax, goes the saying. Both are hailing from Israel, this was put out between Urban Decay Records, To Live A Lie Records, and a couple others that escape me at the moment. It's still in print, just ask the bands or labels for copies!! Mondo Gecko offer up some great hardcore punk, with that great skate-thrash sound that reminds me of Hated Youth and Third Death mashed together. D9 come up with some down-tempo grind, with some really harsh sounding vocals. This shit is heavy as hell. 7 songs from each band, so you don't feel gypped, and this is definitely a great introduction to some Israeli hardcore to those that aren't too up on the whole scene.

Yukon - Mortar

One crazy delicous band from Baltimore, MD. Awesome rock arrangements, reminds me of a more complex Ed Kemper Trio, with some Fugazi melody thrown in. Pretty sweet stuff, really hard to find too, I got this from a friend of mine, I think. If anyone has any of their out of print stuff, e-mail me!! I'd like to get more of the rock.

Cruiser - Sunshine Woman

Good old Portland, OR. I can't beleive this band has only two people in it. This is some of the craziest two-man stuff I've ever heard, in that there isn't any loops being deployed at any time. One track, "Frampo," sounds like there are four or five different guitar parts going on at the same time, but still.. NO LOOPS!!! All finger-picked guitar work (unless I got even more wrong information), with some killer drums to boot. They had this posted for free on their bandcamp page (cruiserdudes.bandcamp.com), I just separated the tracks and uploaded it to mediafire. I think I did it right; I think I might've gotten some of the song names wrong, since the scan of the track list was kind of difficult to make out. There are a few interludes in between a few songs, also. This was self-released in a run of 100 tapes. They're all gone now, so just enjoy their great music.

Aerosols - 3rd 7"

The third EP from this elusive Boston hardcore outfit. There's almost no info on them anywhere (last time I checked), and all of their stuff has been released on the awesome hardcore label Youth Attack Records, run by Mark McCoy (of Das Oath, Charles Bronson, Holy Molar, Failures fame). They are bruuuuuuuuuutaaaaaaaaaallllllllll.

Vacuum Tree Head - Thirteen! Album Review

I have no idea how many people actually have heard of these guys before, how popular they are, etc. but they remain one of the most creative and strange bands to exist. Their newest album, THIRTEEN!, is by far some the best material I've heard by them. This is also one of the best productions I've ever heard on an album, PERIOD (you might disagree with me, but my speakers have never spewed better sounding clarity before this). These songs sound more stuctured than some of their other albums, such as Excel (Eye Eye), or The Oob Eye Works, and is definitely the shortest output, clocking in at about 20 minutes. But what a release!!

Explaining this band to someone new is almost impossible. The songs can't really be described in words, unless you describe each individual song in its own giant paragraph. They mash together orchestral and arabian themes, some flamenco and electronica thrown in, and while previous efforts were somewhat loosely written, probably to allow for a good deal of improvisation, these songs are a lot more tight-knit. You can hear a number of other influences, ranging from Frank Zappa and Sun Ra to King Crimson and Led Zeppelin. Even throw in a few early hardcore punk bands, such as Black Flag and Husker Du. They mash together such a wide range of musical sounds and turn it all into something completely their own, making the entire concept behind the band completely genius.

This album was recorded between 2002 and 2009, (ironic enough, this being as short as it is) with 15 songs ranging from 24 seconds to just under 3 minutes. Along for the ride are musicians from a load of other avante-garde groups such as Moe Staiano (from Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) Rich Corny and Justin Markovits (from Interstellar Grains), and Keith Abrams (from Time of Orchids), among a lot of other great musicians. Not to mention the VTH crew, featuring the band's brainchild Jason Berry on woodwinds, synthesizers, percussion, and more, vocalists Sylvia Gordon and Lucy Foley, and Charles Lloyd and Michael de la Cuestra on sitar, guitars, and more. This is not an album to be missed by anyone with a sweet tooth for the abnormal, the other-worldly, or just the plain curious.

This album has just come out, so I don't feel right just putting up the entire album for a free download, but here is one great track off of the album for you to sample. Support these guys and everything that they do! They're amazing!

Sunday, March 7, 2010


So, if you've never heard of Anisette...you're probably new to the site. I talk about these guys a lot. The last time was about their tour, and along with that, almost the same exact tour CD posted here, entitled Fruit Salad. Well, after said tour, they ran into some stupid snags involving their drummer, and, long story short, with all the drama unattached, this is their re-recorded EP, better quality than the last (A LOT BETTER QUALITY) and all done with a new drummer (formerly of the grind band Hayworth, out of Rhode Island). Every copy of the CD is hand-made in a one-of-a-kind fashion. As Joe, their bassist might say; it's baller. If you like, support; don't be a moosik mooch. Message them at their new myspace for more info.

Tina Kaffeyah! Demo

New demo by these guys out of Philly, PA. Some nice riff-riding with a post-rock kind of feel to them. Just four songs, but not a song under 4 minutes, so your get your money's worth...err, click's worth. All instrumental stuff from these guys, and I've re-upped their link as mp3s, so there should be no hassles with any media players giving those mp4s the stinkeye.

Winning - This is an Ad for Cigarettes

Winning is a very odd band. This is their first release, and I'm not sure how to review this one at all...I guess they're an indie alternative band that was dropped, and now is broken. Think a broken music box that still plays but doesn't sound...right... They pull it off with ease, and honestly I'd recommend this to ayone who likes Calabi Yau or U.S. Maple. A much more laid back sound.

Idolss - I'm Not Ice Cream Demo

Idolss are from Dayton, Ohio. They play a unique technicalish-style hardcore reminiscent of Daughters and early Locust (think the Man is the Bastard split, the stuff before there were any keys), and a little bit of Faeries thrown in there. Not a bad mixture, and not a copy-cat band either. These guys are 100% legit, and on their own terms. They get into some of the sweetest grooves I've heard in awhile (check out 'Swazi' at about 2:20) and some really great drumming and guitarwork on top of that. Let's expect some great stuff from them in the future!

A Fine Boat, That Coffin! - The Second Nail

So, as I'm sure many of you fellers know, European screamo bands are super fucking popular these days. It's pretty dead in the States, but in Europe, there's an overabundance of awesome, intense, and crazy screamo all over the place. This is a great example of this, a really overly talented screamo outfit from Germany. They have a new release called the Morse Zeichen CD-ep on Tor Johnson Records, you should get that shit, too.

Calabi Yau - God Shave Us All EP

What a strange band this is. One for all you "noise rockers" out there. Or something. They be hailin' from Charolette, NC. I guess you could call these guys 'no-wave' which is just a cop-out for lack of a better label, really. They're on some indefinite hiatus, so they might get back together, or maybe not. Hopefully they do, though, cuz they were supposed to do a split 7" with the super amazing Baltimore band, Yukon. Click that link to check out Yukon. Their stuff is amazingly hard to find, unfortunately, although you can find one of their albums by flexing the google fu. Support them anyways, buy their music, love their band!

Same goes for Calabi Yau, wherever you are!

Failures 7"

Another testament to hardcore. I guess. If you liked the LP, then this is pretty much required listening. Only 4 songs on this, and unfortunately, I don't have a hard copy of this...just the mp3s. I can't really find it anywhere, although there was a copy of it on ebay. I guess that's good enough...

By the way, I can't beleive I missed it, but Aerosols DID have a new LP out. I wish I looked harder. Just found a couple of copies on ebay, also. It was a 14 song LP with a fourth 7" EP included. And just like my luck, it sold out on the day it came out. It's supposed to be getting a repress, so keep tabs on it!

Check out this band, if you can muster up the energy to click the link. Com'on, don't be a putz!

This is a band that just rocks. Read their bio on the page; they just have an awesome musical philosophy. It's great to finally hear a band that doesn't have to be angry and pissed off at everything to be fucking rad. Even if you don't dig the tunes, (which you will, or there's something seriously wrong with you) you have to agree these guys have the right attitude.

Rosenbombs - Green Demo REQUEST

No artwork, as far as I know there never was. Suck it dry. Rosenbombs play fucking awesome ferocious hardcore. On this 17 song demo, they rip harder than anywhere else. They added a second vocalist, total she-ripping all over the place, to add to the already ripping thrash attack. Did I mention that these guy fucking RIP??!? Total knockout skate-thrash-angst-fuck you hardcore. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure they aren't around anymore, all the more reason to get this shit in your head though, right? RIGHT??? I completely forgot about this band until I got that magnificent request. Shame on me, forgetting this unforgettable hardcore band.... Super thanks for good ol' Pabst Benedict from the mega awesome blog Am I Mean? for getting this to me ages ago. Well, about a year ago. Yeah, I fucking remembered!!

Ahleuchatistas - On The Culture Industry

Crazy progressive rock/post-jazz and all that sub-genre bullshit. Think a more organized instrumental Captain Beefheart. This be their first full length, I posted their amazing opus What You Will awhile back, on the (I guess now Defunct) Blog I helped post on with Gumo Ga, among others. If you like sometimes really melodic, really strange always super weird instrumental rock, get this in your brain. "The Machines Become Cognizant" is an amazing song. This is easily the most accesible album they have. It's a lot more catchy than the rest of their albums.

Slam Chop - Bloody Roots Demo

Some really sick hardcore from Japan, constant bringer of...well, sick hardcore. Featuring intense powerviolence riffage, combined with sickly sweet j-pop punk choruses, done in combo vocals with shrieking male and that female singing-kinda punk stuff. I really fucking love this band, and you should too, think the French band "Rainbow of Death" but more hardcore punk than super charged powerviolence. Unfortunately, they only have one other demo, and I have no idea what it is, due to this being an extremely elusive and defunct band for many a year now. All of their four tracks from the Japanese Thrash Compilation on 625 Thrash are on this one.
