Full contamination of the human population is the malicious contagion known as Untoward, born of Portland based vermin Rabbits. Blaring amplification and sarcastic, parasitic methodology, this trio unloads 6 songs of dynamic aggravation, now on Chris Spencers' (Unsane and Cutthroats 9...duh) label Lamb Unlimited.
Pummel! Pummel! Slam! Ooof!

Experimental noisy hardcore from Barcelona's Una Bèstia Incontrolable, roughly translated means, an uncontrollable beast!
And its fitting. This distorted, repetitive, and heavy, 9-song beast, snarls, and will tear and shred you up like uncle Lawrence Talbot on his midnight feedings when the moon is full. Ah-ooooooo!

Pretty dirtgy and gritty demo from Birthday Girl outta Oakland, CA. You have your Drunks With Guns in there. Your Flipper in there. A smidgeon of Fang. A shred of Clockcleaner. A scrap of old Neurosis in there as well. Sounds like early SST colliding with early Alt Tentacles schtuff.
Watch out for that creepy party clown chuggin' a bottle of whiskey before lighting his cigar off of your birthday cake candles. ...aaand many mooooore....

Did you like that last post, Ten Volt Shock? Of course you did. Then of course you should dig this as well. Similar style wrock and wroll shredding you a new arse. Also features members that went on to form Ten Volt Shock. Ahhhh. Now it all comes together. Like a whirling death machine... with some assembly required.

High energy, brute force and intricate and intelligent noise rock intensity. Ten Volt Shock is a 3 piece from Germany and this slab of noise rock goodness is their fifth full length ass kicker. Walloping bass, machine gun rhythms, clangy, bashing guitars and gruff vocals will lay waste to the room in seconds.
If you're into The Austerity Program, Shellac, Glazed Baby, New Brutalism, then this should grab your goodies.

Cottaging seeps out of the dark vapor abyss with drugged out and spaced out caterwauling, with plenty of crunchy rhythms and delay-drenched vocals. Untrustworthy curmudgeons ingesting Chrome & Helios Creed and spewing aural shit over the Northeast Corridor. Its fun to take a trip!

Debut EP of the Austrian noise rock duo Baguette.
5 songs that kick out the jams as angular and sludgy versions of Pissed Jeans, Hammerhead, Butthole Surfers and Lightning Bolt. Soundtrack to crawling naked across the Sahara Desert with all kinds of drugs and booze flowing through your system. Sounds like a typical weekend eh?

Ok I really want to get all, or at least most of the Cop Shoot Cop stuff up here. And since I just posted the first single, here's their first album (if you call 6 songs an album). Makes sense, yes?
This stuff is so important and still holds up in my opinion today. You youngsters, pay attention.

First 3-song EP from ground (and groin) breaking post-punk/ industrial/ noise group Cop Shoot Cop from NYC.
(Sorry, I typed 'groin' by accident, but decided to keep it in there).
These were limited to 1000 and were apparently all individually splattered with real pig's blood.
What, no human blood? That's just lazy. FYI...there are no guitars on this, but still kicks ass.

Angular and noooiiiisseeee stuff from Jubilé outta São Tomé and Príncipe, the 2nd smallest African country. But this ain't no African tribal dance music. It puts you in your place and tells you to shut the Hell up!
Don't know much about these guys, but their description states...at worst you'll just lose 30 minutes. OK!
It also says...my ass is tofu and something about Rock 'n' Roll masturbation. Ok. You got my attention. I'm in. You'll dig this if you're into Shellac, New Brutalism, Shorty, Dazzling Killmen.
Oh, and the Bandcamp link only has half the songs. Not sure what's up with that.
