CHERUBS - PINK PARTY DESSERT EP (1992)




















Gotta get my lazy ass posting more Cherubs. Escpecially since they've 'supposedly' decided to reunite. Not sure if there will be new recordings or a tour or what. Whatever, I'm excited.

These guys are kings of ugly ass noise rock! Done right!! And this was their first single.

INTERCOURSE - INTERCOURSE (2014)




















A band submission of sorts.
Received an email from these swell guys and pleasantly and disgustedly surprised (in the best kinda way of course). Intercourse is 4 dudes from New Haven, CT who make a loud, hefty and drunk noise punk ruckus with a power hardcore tinge. The cover reminds me of a 16 album cover, and the music punches you in the gut from the first sound blasted at you so sharply and uncivilized like.

X25X - DISTORTION OF LIFE (2010)





















Heavy, distorted, abrasive and dirty noise rock from France that definitely nods to old Amrep style.
Hammerhead meets Tad meets Jesus Lizard. Rumbling and chunky like your grandma Tilly.

GASENETA - SOONER OR LATER (1978)




















Probably one of the earliest noise rock bands ever, especially on this blog. Gaseneta, a 4 piece out of Japan, recorded this in 1978, and has all the sloppy, crunchy, and ugly aspects of noise rock and garage that you love. Halo of Flies meets Scratch Acid meets Godzilla.
I don't know the original label that released this, but P.S.F reissued this in 1991.

TECHNICIAN - OPPOSITION (2001)






















Technician is/was from Pennsylvania.
This 6 song EP was produced by Steve Albini and basically sounds like a Shellac record.
I'm completely and totally fine with that and you should be too.

THRALL - CHEMICAL WEDDING (1996)




















Well since I posted one Thrall album previously, I had to get more up here. This is their first full record as Thrall right after a doing a few singles as Hand Over Head. There are even 2 Hand Over Head songs that end up here. This is the best Thrall album in my opinion, with Mike Hard at his psychotic best, and with a combination of great guitar parts, electronic samples, and stellar production.
Do it now. Do it now!

SCUD - SPY SMASHER RECORDINGS / STEVE ALBINI RECORDINGS (1994)




















Ahhhhh...the cool thing about doing this blog....discovering new shit. This was given to me from Boris who was in Scud, a killer, gnarly and ugly noise rock band from Germany in the mid 90s. This contains the Spy Smasher 4 song EP plus 4 extra non-released tracks from that recording. Also included are 4 songs that were recorded with Steve Albini that were supposed to go on a split with Big'n, but never happened. The recordings sound great. Would love for these songs to get a proper release some day.

MOUTHEATER - PASSING KEY (2014)




















Goddamn I say, this is how its done! Ugly kozmik noise rock flower sludge right to the solar plexus. Moutheater (not Mouthbreather) from Norfolk Virginia rips our faces off with aggressive, gruff vocals, start and stop and fast and slow heavy riffs, thudding bass, and crushing drums. Imagine Coliseum, Unsane, Helmet, Ken Mode and Whores in a giant cement mixer jumping a live volcano. Wooooooo!

TABLE - UNWIND / GAG BOX 7" (1992)




















Badass mathy noise-rock from Table out of Chicago, who were active in the mid 90s.
Think a mix of Tar, Jesus Lizard, Quicksand, Season To Risk, Shellac. You're thinking aren't you?
I can see the gears spinning. Spin spin spin.
