KING SNAKE ROOST - FROM BARBARISM TO CHRISTIAN MANHOOD (1987)




















Need some more classic boozy, bluesy, dirge rock up in these parts from King Snake Roost.
This is their first full length, originally on Aberrant, and later picked up by the fine folks at Amrep.
This album will be the perfect soundtrack to your night of debauchery you have ahead of you.
It's ok. We're all friends here. Your secrets are safe with us.
(Aberrant/Amrep - 1987)

DL: FROM BARBARISM

TONGUE PARTY - TONGUE PARTY (2015)




















Cool band from Minneapolis, MN called Tongue Party.
They definitely have the local influence creepin' in, probably from drinking the same booze.
Sounds like a mix of Hammerhead, Gay Witch Abortion and The Blind Shake.
Fuzzy and rockin' good schtuff.

GREAT FALLS / THOU (SHELLAC COVERS) SPLIT 7" (2015)




















2 bands trying their hand at Shellac covers.
Great Falls does 'Wingwalker'. Thou does 'Prayer to God'.
I'm not always a big fan of these types of covers.
Great Falls version is decent.
I think the Thou version is terrible. But I'm not into that kinda stuff.
But you may be, so who am I to tell whats good or bad. It's like...your opinion maaaan.

BULL - TINBOX 7" (1992)




















I had posted their... long EP?...Short LP?... thingy before here.
Here's their 7" with 3 more songs.
Go to the other post for 'band description' schtuff.
You need this you may wonder? I say, you most definitely do!!
C'mon...its 90s Chicago rock! Get crackin'!

DL: TINBOX

SHIT HAPPINESS - CHICKEN MOLE AND THE WASP (2014)




















First off I'll apologize for the title translation for this EP if its wrong. I can't read or write Russian?...so this is what the google machine told me. I kinda laughed when I saw it, but its kinda cool regardless. Lemme know if you know any different.

So on to the tunes, shall we?...Shit Happiness have a few releases out, this is their newest 4-song EP.
Thick and ugly, heavy molasses sauce, sludge rock in the vein of Unsane, Glazed Baby, and Fight Amputation, with some Helmet riffs mashed in. Great for blasting loud in your car while stuck in traffic for all around to hear.
(Self Released - 2014)

DEATH TO PIGS - LIVE AT KARACHI (2012)




















Damaged, dirty, and noisy as fuck. Death To Pigs (France) play a pounding, buzzsaw and gut wrenching style of rock similar to Pissed Jeans, Jesus Lizard, Cop Shoot Cop, and Swans.
This record has some no-wave and experimental elements, which is different from their past shit, but still remains as ugly as your step sisters friends.
Also, this is not a live album, as states, but 13 studio songs for your displeasure. Killer shit.
(213 Records - 2012)

DL: LIVE AT KARACHI

SCUL HAZZARDS - COUNT LESS DEAD (2007)




















Required, fucking great, listening if yer into this noisy rawk we love here at the blog.
Scul Hazzards were/are from Melbourne, Victoria Australia.
This is a 5 song EP that fans of Shellac, Jesus Lizard, Dazzling Killmen, Unsane, Hawks will enjoy the shit out of.

BAKAMONO - THE CRY OF THE TURKISH FIG PEDDLER (1994)




















Here's some cool angular, mathy, weirdo noise rock from Bakamono...not all that dissimilar to Fugazi, Sonic Youth, Hoover, Nation of Ulysses, Steel Pole Bath Tub, and Cherubs... all in a boozy, fuzzy-eyed pool party.

Just make sure you warmup and stretch the muscles before listening to this. Don't want to pull a hammy while getting down, doing 'The Jerk' to this in your living room, basement or backyard.
Must-have stuff.
(Priority Records - 1994)

DL: TURKISH FIG

ABRAMS - LUST. LOVE. LOSS. (2015)




















Good new debut shit from Abrams, a 3-piece from Denver, Color-RAD-o.
Gnarly, heavy, angst driven, guitar riff rawk in the vein of Doomriders, Coliseum, Ladder Devils, Baroness, and Disappearer.
That's quite a mouthful eh? Get on it fools.
(Self-released - 2015)

DL: LUST LOVE LOSS
