I could swear I posted this a while back. It recently came across my desk, and I was like, oh yeah that's on the blog. But when I looked, it wasn't there. Damnit!
So here it is for reals!
Erupting from Brooklyn’s guts like a cultural vomiting fit, bbigpigg’s ferocious SEWER-PUNK sound leaves audiences with ringing ears and the best kind of bad taste in their mouths. Mixing “noise” and “rock” in equal measure, bbigpigg’s blunt, pulverizing knuckledusters crossbreed The Jesus Lizard’s airtight rhythm section with Arab on Radar’s haywire guitar-work, invoking an ugly, groove-heavy commotion far catchier than it has any right to be.

Brand new shit from Blacklisters! Goddamn these guys are the cats pajamas!!!
10 songs of pure pummeling and crunching noise rock that takes everything you love about old Amrep bands, and smashes it with some Jesus Lizard, Hawks and Throat.
OOOOF! Heavy thud action that you neeeed! Get on it!

Just discovered these guys and gawd-dayam they're goooood!!
A duo from Atlanta, GA that are loud, disruptive, chaotic, exploding!
Mash The Bronx, Nirvana and Shellac into an insane little noise punk package of pow!
Honestly, I don't know how big these guys are.
Generally I try to stick with the smaller unknowns 'round these parts...
so I apologize if these guys are huge Hasselhoffs in some parts 'round the globe and I'm unaware.
But this shit's the bombastic bomb-o-rama, and fit here just aok!

Pummeling, destroying, crushing, annihilating, damaging, scarring.
How do just 2 people make this thick of a ruckus?
Unsane sounding shit from Vandal X, who obviously got their name from the Unsane song.
I only assume that actually.... You need this shit!!!

You fucking love this stuff... as do I.
Casus Belli features Anthony Martin, who was in Bastards, and also worked with Chokebore.
This is just the heavy, ugly, noisy thud that you expected from Amrep in the mid-90s.
This be their only full length. Get ready to get your head schmacked!!
(Amrep - 1994)
2-piece from NY. One part Lightening Bolt, one part Nomeansno, and one part Bastard Noise, Twin Lords play a punishing mix of swirling, melodic, progressive, heavy-as-hell metal rooted in insane bass riffs and blast-off drumming.

4th and final full length from Head of David.
Features Justin Broadrick. Yes!!
And should fulfill any Big Black / Industrial noise rock sounding cravings you may have.
They just don't make 'em like this anymore.

Dirt featured John Forbes of Mount Shasta and Phantom 309.
Grimey, grubby, grungy, bluesy and ugly Atlanta noise rock.
Mule meets Nashville Pussy meets Mudhoney.

I'll admit, the cover art misleads. No, this is NOT a ska album, as much as it looks like it.
You should know by now that I wouldn't do that to you guys.
This is a noise/indie influenced rocking band from Amsterdam that has been kicking around for 20 years! Wow! Maybe they were called Going Bald back then. (Heh heh).
Anyway, they play a buzzsaw style of rock with influences pulled from the Albini Instruction manual. Throw in some Sebadoh, Truman's Water, and Big'n, and this should slap your face into a rubbery, stretchy, pliable putty.

This is Andy Newman's post-Glazed Baby project.
It's noisy like Glazed Baby, but has some bluesy aspects swirling within.
No this has nothing to do with Sonic Youth either, which is what mostly comes up when searching for this. Definitely 'must have' shit.

Brand new, and second ass-kicking full-length from Pigs!
It picks right up from where their last 'Gaffe' EP left off and continues to pummel you into dust.
11 songs of ugly, nasty, crunchy, pounding, bludgeoning punishment!

The Strap are from Winnepeg, Manitoba.
Bottom-smashing grooves under layers of frantic guitar noise and wall-o-sound percussion arrangements.
14 kicks to the ass.
