First full length recording from Shellac, recorded live in 1993. These songs all come from their first 2 7"s and eventually their first proper LP, At Action Park. Overall this sounds fuckin' great for a live recording. If yer a fan (which, duh, you're at this blog so you probably are) then you'll be wanting this in your greasy little hands pronto.

Pittsburgh noise rock / hardcore fellers The Fitt have been kickin' around since 2005. This is a release of leftovers tracks and are un-mastered. If you buy the LP you get the mastered versions, which is fair I'd say. But these versions stand up pretty well, and I hope the mastered versions don't get too 'cleaned up'. Crunchy like my afternoon snack of rocks and glass.

Ok. Lets go way back to... 1985? Well there was Wham!, Duran Duran, REO Speedwagon...and feedtime! Way ahead of their time I would say. Blazing the trail with Flipper and Big Black with noise rock roots, this is their first, fuzzed out, swamp rock, noise crudge record.

3 songs, 2 bands and 1 helluva split single. 2 noise generators from Atlanta, Bodyfather give us 2 shorter blasts that tear you up like your uncle Billy's new weed-wacker, while MTN ISL contributes one longer 5+ rough and gruff smashter blaster. Music for a hot summer night in the garage to drown out the neighbors pool party.

Really awesome math rock/noise rock from dudes outta Australia. These guys did a split with Young Widows a few years back. If you like off-kiltered, angular shit, this is for you.
Fans of Shellac will want this faster than a plastic Spock costume at a Sci-Fi convention sale.
This is a compilation of 2 EPs.
Songs 1-5 are from Language Of Numbers EP
Songs 6-8 are from Collapse Of An Erratic Lung 7''

Driving and crushing, head to the floor noise sludge from 3 piece Bardus. They have that Kowloon Walled City, Fight Amp, Ladder Devils thing going on. Guess that makes sense since they drink the same Philly water (and booze) as Fight Ampsters and the Ladder Devilers.

Great 90s noise rock from Wisconsin's Double Boar. Since they were from Beer-sconsin, they have a bit of a Killdozer vibe. But not so much the backwoods part, but more dirty, trashy alley behind the brewery and cheese factory part. Pairs well with an Old Milwaukee in a can. Gulp!

Ok, on my 3rd listen today, and this record smokes!!
Thin Privilege is a distorted two-bass driven noise rock assault from the UK.
Chaotic vocals ranging from a Sex Pistols to a Pissed Jeans style, and mixed perfectly without overpowering the music. And nothing straight forward about the thumping, pummeling and thick fuzzed out and feedback drenched chunks of noise erupting behind. Every song crunches thru different speeds and structures to keep your ears and head more twisted and blown than a David Cronenberg film. Keep watch on these guys.
