STAG PARTY, 9 o´ clock, my house.


I just took my girlfriend to her company christmas party. So Cash and me stayed home alone and deceided to throw a stag party with just the two of us. That meant frozen pizza, cat food and lotsa good music.
While I was stitching my INSECT WARFARE patch on my jacket, Cash decided what to hear.

So here´s a summing up of what we heard tonight while sitting on the couch in underpants, belching an farting and stitchin on patches like my mom did when I was a child (the stitching, not the farting, hahahaha).

I thought we could have started with something more mellow, but Cash called me a sissy an put on the first 7" of Inglewoods finest FINAL DRAFT. What a killer, definately one of the best new power violence bands!! ("Straight from Inglewood, and you know that it´s all good...") The only problem is that this 7" is over too soon, but I know about an upcoming split 7" with one of my faves BRUCEXCAMPBELL and a full length album, both on RSR, the best label around!

Okay Pizza´s ready. Goodamn I love Restaurante pizza Funghi.

When I proposed the INSECT WARFARE / AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED Split 5" Cash was like "Now you´re getting reasonable! But keep standing, it´s not worth sitting down, you have to flip the record in some seconds anyway!" I remember when I first heard this record. I launched the A-side and I thought "Wait a minute, this ain´t AG. NOSEBLEED nor IN. WARFARE" because AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED sounded so inconvenient, so unfamiliar. But it´s definately them alright.

Shortly after the 5" we went on with the recent KILL THE CLIENT Lp called "Cleptocracy". This record is the best example that a good record player (combined with a good stereo) sound better than even the best digital file. I heard this as Mp3 files first and I thought it is an awsome album. But when I got the record last month it kicked me off my feet. Holy mother of everything that´s good and pure. This album is sooo fuckin hard. One of the best grindcore albums in years!! Some people find it even "too hard!!!" Think of a mix between PIG DESTROYER (Prowler)and LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER ( Extinction)with a high end production (no, not over produced!)What a killer!!

I just opend a bottle of alcohol free white wine! I love the taste of this decadent shit!

For the next record I had to deviate Cash so I gave him some treat. While he was eating I put on the "No laughing matter" 12" of the famous anarcho punk band ANTI-SYSTEM. I especially like the B-Side because it contains the smash hit "Aninmal welfare", though I like the version of this song with their first line up the best!

Okay the stitchin was almost done and I wanted to watch some episode of LITTLE BRITAIN but first I wanted to end the musical journey with somethin extrem. I put on the IN DISGUST "Reality choke" 10". In case you don´t know them already, they play very harsh noisegrind like THOUSANDSWILLDIE (Who ripped me off btw, but I will tell you later about theses assholes). Even Cash admitted: "Holy fuck, this is some intense shit!!!" IN DISGUST rules!

Normally I wanted to watch DVD then, but I realized that I got a reply on my appeal to get the lyrics to the MORBID HUMOR song(s)"Oh my god" Pt. I+II. I got the lyrics from nobody but Nogsy (vocalist) himself!!! So I HAD TO listen to the ANTI-SYSTEM / MORBID HUMOR Split 7" again like I did so often during the last weeks. "Oh my god" is such an incredible good song and now that I have the lyrics it´s even better!
I´m going to upload it soon, okay?

Cheers friends

Rob (and Cash)

PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI - Har Du Sagt "A" Får Du Si "Nal"

Some demo recordings are so good that they have to be put on record (a lot of don´t though). PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI from Norway is a ONE man grindcore project in the vein of old PHOBIA or CATHETER. This album contains the 2006 and 2007 demos, well produced guts ripping grind with a radical, political message. I love the B-side with the 2007 demo best but decide for yourself. Don´t get me wrong, this is not just a low budget / bootleg styled CD / LP pressing. It has a glossy package and a VERY nice 10" booklet with all the Norwegian lyrics translated to English. The vinyl version of this killer album is limited to 300 copies and they are all handnumbered. You can buy it directly via the myspace profile if you are from Europe. Everywhere outside the EU you can buy it from Cylindrical Habitat Modules. I only paid 14 Euros including postage from Norway. That´s the price of some records here without any postage. That´s an awsome deal and definately a non-profit price! Go get your copy as long as you can. And yes, you can purchase a Cd version as well.
The first official studio album "De Anarkistiske An(n)aler" will be released in January 2009 on CRUCIFICADOS PEL SISTEMA Records and 625 THRASH followed by a split 7" with their fellow countrymen BLODSPRUT.
MØLLEN, the man behind PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI liked the idea of putting this album up here. Thx for the kind words about this blog buddy. So download it first and then go buy it you retards.
I´m so sorry, but I had to tag the songs with the English titles. The font that was used fo all the titles was so weired that I were not able to deceipher it and I don´t know any Norwegian at all. I´d love to tag the songs in their origin language!
Sorry!

CONFUSION - Civilization...?

I HAVE to post another extreme record to relativize all the soft rock music here ;-).
Here we have some obscure grind-/noisecore from Columbia. CONFUSIONs `Civilization...?´ flexi 7" is really noisy. If you like old school grind like FEAR OF GOD or very early NAPALM DEATH you´ll propably dig CONFUSION. Okay they didn´t know how to play well and the production was lousy too but somehow I find this record charming. Though released on legendary Japanese Grindcore label STANDARD OF REBELLION this flexi is pretty much diregarded anyway. CONFUSION were grinding their 15 songs almost trying to play as fast as they can. At least it sounds like this. It somehow conjures up a grin on my face when I listen to this record and read along their political lyrics which are kinda naive like a lot of other "political" hardcore / punk bands.
If somebody´s interested, I have another mint copy for trade. It´s very rare so don´t come up with some shit...!!!!
Give the flexi a listen. Grrrrrrind!!!

WOJCZECH - Sedimente

Everytime I listen to WOJCZECH I realize their potential but their ability always suffers from a very bad sound production. Someone told me that 2005 album `Sedimente´ is very good because of real good production. So I gave them another try and I was thrilled!! It sounds really good indeed!! Think of a mix of crust, modern, atmospheric D-Beat ala TRAGEDY or even FROM ASHES RISE and tons of CYNESS styled grindcore!! Sounds good? Yes it definately is!! The grind parts are played at maximum speed and the slower parts are real diversified and sometimes even melodic! WOJCZECH were always some kind of a mediocre split side band to me like UNHOLY GRAVE or AGATHOCLES (I guess some people are going to kill me now)because of their awful sound, but with this album they proved that they could play mayor league. Haha, I just read that they wrote on themself at their Myspace page: `dozens of sheer unlistenable split"7 / Lps´ concerning their discography. Fortunately this album stands out totally. Their recent release, the tour split 7" with CATHETER is one of their releases with a more dull production again. Pure grindcore on this new split 7". Not bad at all, but I advice you to check out this killer on Selfmade god records!!
In case you´re going to check their Myspace profile first: It doesn´t feature any song from this album at the moment. Just their mentioned weak releases!! So give this record a try anyway!
