BIG'N - LIVE AT THE PRF BBQ AUKTOBERFEST (2010)




















Let's stick with another Big'n post. These guys are so damn good.
8 songs from the PRF BBQ thing back in 2010.

Plus this is Memorial Day weekend in the US.
Lots of BBQs will be happening, and people getting shit-faced. So this seems appropriate.

And, I feel like the last few Fridays have been live stuff day.
I posted a live Unsane album and a live Halo Of Flies as well.
Let's see if my pea-brain can remember to keep posting live stuff every Friday.

Happy Friday / Memorial Weekend / BBQ weekend thing. Go outside and eat and drink.

BIG'N / PENCIL SPLIT 7" (1993)













Killer split 7". 2 bands. 2 songs.

Big'n from Joliet (Chicago), IL.
Pencil from Indianapolis, IN.

You'd be wise to grab this.
(Spontaneous Combustion Records - 1993)

RITUAL DEVICE - RITUAL LIPS / GRANDMA 7" (1991)




















Flashback Friday. Or Old Stuff Friday is a better, non-hip name.

Ritual Device was short-lived noise-scum band from Omaha, Nebraska, with only a few releases.
This is their first 7" and first release.
Displeasing stuff for the eardrums ala Killdozer, Jesus Lizard, Drunks With Guns.

GIANT HENRY - BIG BABY (1991 / 2013)




















This Giant Henry album smokes!

A 2013 reissue of this 1991 release basically finds us looking at a pre-Unwound post hardcore band.
This features members that were in Unwound (duh), as well as Young Ginns, Worst Case Scenario, Fitz of Depression, Replikants, and Surviaval Knife.

This basically sounds like a mix of Unwound and early Nirvana. You need this!!

ELEPHANT RIFLE - IVORY (2015)




















I remember the first time I heard Elephant Rifle, I was like...who the fuck are these guys, and how can they kick so much ass. I wouldn't steer you wrong...go back and listen.

Well this is their newest, 10 song effort. Only this time I'm saying, hey...I know who the fuck these guys are...and I'm glad they're still kicking so much ass.
You will agree with me once you cheese grate your ears with this bombastic concoction.
Grungy and noisy...the way its supposed to be.

FOSSILS - THE MEATING EP (2015)




















So this band, Fossils from Denmark...had an album last year, 'Flesh Hammer' that was pretty good.
I though I had posted it. But apparently I was a miserable shit and forgot to do so. Sorry bout that.

So let's move on to this for now... The Meating is their new 7 song EP and from what I can tell they are pulling a Probot album.
Remember Probot? Dave Grohl got a bunch of badass metal bands like Sepultura, Venom, Motorhead, etc...to play with him. I thought it was a great idea and fantastic album.

This EP (a cassette release) takes a similar idea, featuring different people on vocals. Since Fossils is primarily a big and heavy, math-core sounding instrumental duo, I think it works well. Honestly I didn't recognize any of the names, but it doesn't keep me from enjoying the shit of this. You should too. And check out 'Flesh Hammer' while you're there.

LINKS FIXED














After that Wreck post that came back with weirdness thru mediafrier, I went back thru and noticed a few others links that were blocked as well.

I didn't realize that was happening, so hopefully I can keep the whole of the archive here at the bloggo active... and keep 'you', the fine visiting people happy!

If there was something you wanted and wasn't there, hopefully its fixed now. So go back and check.
If you notice something not working, feel free to let me know as well. Thanks.

Yay! Happy clicking and listening.

WRECK - SOUL TRAIN (1992)




















Ok let's keep the Wreck going.
This is their first full length and sounds as awesome as the other stuff I've posted.
Again...this is essential stuff!

*I'm waiting on the 'Mikey' single from a buddy. I'll post that shortly.
I don't have the 'Joe' single.
If anyone out in interwebs land has it, myself and others would enjoy that!

UNWOUND - PEEL SESSIONS (1998)




















5 words...Unwound Peel Sessions Fuck Yeah
This was recorded for BBC DJ legend John Peel during their Challenge for a Civilized Society tour.

3 songs here: "Side Effects of Being Tired" and "Hexenszene" from New Plastic Ideas, plus "Kantina/Were, Are and Was or Is" from Fake Train.

Mandatory rock.

Apparently Numero Group is releasing this on vinyl, but I don't know any other info about it.

UT - NOISE DEADENING BARRIER (2015)




















First off, this is not the improv / No Wave New York UT band from the 80s.
This is a UT band that makes a noisy ruckus, are from Genoa, Italy and are from this present time period.

And the title might throw you off, cuz this is anything but noise deadening.
10 bombastic blasts that will bombard your butt with belligerence. 
If you're a fan of The Shellac or The Rapeman or The New Brutalism or The Scul Hazzards, then you'll be wanting to pick this up for your noise rock pleasure.
(Marsiglia Records - 2015)
